    Nope. There is no Photonic Fleet console. However there are at least 4 devices that can summon ships.
    • Nimbus Pirate Distress Call (Installation 18, Nimbus arc)
    • Delta Alliance Reinforcement Beacon (Broken Circle, Iconian War arc)
    • Phased-Waveform Beacon (Home, Gamma Arc)
    • Beacon of Kahless (event reward)

    These do share a cooldown with Fleet Support captain ability.

    Engineering is by far the worst career in space. But yeah I understand not wanting to slap a captain power on a console

    The closest I can think of to what the OP is asking for is the Fundamental Field Replicator from the La Sirena.

    Isn't there something that gives you an additional ship for photonic fleet? I forget if it's a trait, DOff, or console.

    For sure consoles there address a few that give one large pet or several smaller pets. Most large pets are locked to ships for the most partsure to being separation pets, but one interesting large console pet that can be used on any ship is the console from the Vanguard Carrier. For small pets, the Swarmer Matrix is cheap-ish lockbox console that summons a few small Swarmers. The Discovery Constition (Promo or Legendary) also has a similar console, but that's very expensive fed side, and 450 Lobi for console and trait KDF side.

    There is another option - the console from T6 Temporal Destroyer Ship (Console - Unniversal - Enhaced Mannheim Device) generates 2 copies of player ship to fly around and attack enemies. It can be equipped on any ship - though I got bug, that creates invisible copies if the ship has separate mechanics (Galaxy-X, Multivector Asault and so on...)

    Also, I do not think there is Personal Trait for additional Photonic Fleet Ship - If I remember correctly there is only Personal Trait for shortening cooldown for Photonic Fleet, unless it something from Lockbox that I do not know about...
    But the Starship Trait from Command Specialization - Command Frequency - first turns off the need for having low hull health for Fleet Support, then the Superior Version of it adds one ship to the reinforcements from Fleet Support...

    It's not engineering that is the problem, it's the game and the devs that are the problem

    I have several engineering captains and I don't have any problems playing them. It's just player preference, really, as I don't particularly like Tactical, but I still have a few of those too.
    Now a LTS and loving it.

    Just because you spend money on this game, it does not entitle you to be a jerk if things don't go your way.
