    Can somebody tell me which carrier pet is the best for dealing damage? I've heard it's the elite obelisk swarmers but I'd like everybody's opinion. I'll probably be getting the Fleet Jupiter Class Carrier in 8 or 9 days so I'm looking for the best damage dealing carrier pet to use with it.

    I would like to know that too, I asked for help with a Jupiter build in the Build Discussions section 3 weeks ago and got radio silence.

    If you're getting a Jupiter, your options are really limited as about half the total federation hanger pets can only be equipped on particular carriers (IE The Stalker fighter can only be equipped to the Atrox).

    That leaves you with the Paragrine (& its Advanced/Elite Varients), Type 8, 10 & Elite 10 shuttles, Danube, Adv Danube, Yellowstone Runabouts, 3 variants of the Delta Flyer, 3 varients of the Shield Repair Units, Calisto Frigates (3 varients) and the Mirror Universe Shuttles 3 varients.

    There's also the Cross-Faction fighters from the Romulan and Nukara Reps, the Obelisk Swarmers from the Fleet Spire, The Breen Fighters (if you own the Breen ships), Cardassian Frigates (if you own the Cardassian ships), Hur'q fighters (if you own the Hur'q carrier), and the Jem'Hadar fighters (if you own the required Jem'hadar ship).

    Most outdated Jupiter builds I've seen have been an Elite Paragrine Fighter with a Callisto Frigate.

    Romulan Elite Drones (Scimitars or T'laru). They sometimes outdps somr players.

    Elite romulan scorpions come to mind for any ship.

    Or the Elite Calipso/Calisto frigates from the fed carrier (jupiter)

    Elite Scorps are only good against specific content, due to their heavy plasma torpedoes against slow/stationary unshielded targets, such as the ones in certain Borg TFOs. Possibly the best choice for parsing things like ISA, but on the higher end you'll have teams that kill their targets before the torpedoes ever hit, and that drops their DPS to nothing.

    In my experience newer enemies tend to have AoE things that can wipe out entire fighter wings. I haven't touched fighters since the first Dyson sphere when I'd see 12 fighters go POOF to some sparkly field effect right as combat started. Then the Undine with their hazards and ugh, forget it. I stick to frigates (ones that aren't broken anyway) and runabouts.

    Elite Delta Flyers are my go-to if I'm in a Fed carrier. Arrays mean you're not at the mercy of AI breaking with respect to cannons, transphasic torps mean you don't have to worry about stripping shields, and since the Tachyon Beam buff (you know, the one that makes clusters of Borg Spheres utterly annihilate our shields) their utility has been excellent as well. Shuttles mean they don't die when enemies sneeze on them, and it's all in theme with my Fed carriers.

    All that being said, apparently the Elite Aeon hangers are amazing. Dominates the hanger DPS charts for Fed.
    Stingers (KDF) and Drones (Romulan) are competitive, with either of the three taking the lead depending on content. The Superior Area Denial trait will give the Aeons FAW, a buff that's somewhat unique in affecting their performance as the others already have a buff for their energy weapons.

    I haven't spent the 900 Lobi to buy the ship that allows us to buy them, though. My main is Romulan and Elite Drones compare favorably with the Elite Aeon hangers.

    The Romulan Drones are only usable on the Dreadnought Warbirds (so the T5 and T6 Scimitars) and the T'laru Intel Carrier. You need to own one of the former to buy them, anyway.

    Greetings,

    I play mostly in my "Kelvin Timeline Intel Dreadnought Cruiser", I don't regret it. Has one slot for drones but they are powerful little buggers. Once they're all out and they activate spread or fire at will, and just as I do it too, it is like a light show out in space with ships getting shreaded. They make quick work of BoP's and other small craft with all that fire flung about. They also allow me time to bring all my forward weapons to bear too since the enemy so busy with them.


    Hangar - Elite Kelvin Timeline Assault Drones
    Ultra Rare Hangar Bay

    Kelvin Timeline Intel Dreadnought Cruiser (T6)
    Kelvin Timeline Assault Drone gear:
    * Kelvin Timeline Phaser Emitter Array
    * Kelvin Timeline Photon Torpedo Launcher
    * Ram

    * Beam: Fire at Will I

    Launch Elite Kelvin Timeline Assault Drones
    Launches three Elite Kelvin Timeline Assault Drones. Each hangar supports two wings of three fighters each.
    I have those Elite Jem'hadar fighters for my carrier though, brutal but that is a build I'm still working on.

    On the subject of Superior Area Denial, if a pet already has FAW (especially if it has a higher rank than 1), does it really get anything from that trait?

    (EDIT: apart from the debuff, which still looks pretty damn big)

    Sorry to get on this thread with my question rather than start a new one.

    I fly Jemmies and only want Jemmie hanger pets, what are your recommendations I run elite bugs on two of my alts, but my new main running elite gunboats, I think I can get all the jemmie hanger pets on my new main which is a Jem'hadar Vanguard Tac Officer - KDF aligned if it makes a difference.

    Thanks
