I voted option 3. A fleet built around a carrier should strike fear into the opponent like any other warship of the line. As of now they're just annoying.

If fighters are ever ammended per one of the 20 threads going on right now, carriers will become that much more effective.

This is the way to go to increase their effectiveness w/o making them too powerful/complex.

With no real risk you can do damage to your enemies Using the jump point lost me some games in the GenCon Indy tournament - especially versus the Narn and Drazi...my ships came in and things were so tight, I couldn't maneuver my ships like I wanted while using the jump point to damage things.

As a Minbari player I've used it. But - as it's been pointed out elsewhere - Minbari ships lose the benefits of stealth beyond 10" and the reach of their long ranged weapons.

Because of that, I rarely use it even though it is a legit weapon.

In the show they did seem more agile than their stats indicate.

Also, the special damage table they use seems a bit much. Enter DD or TD and game over. Is the lack of crew vulnerability supposed to offset this?

Does everyone feel the arcs are necessary? I'm thinking if you took it out, you'd be able to lay the other items in more cleanly. F, A, P and S should be second nature by now, no?

The rule states, 'within 24" of a ship with the Stealth trait'. If it applied to multiple ships, it would read, 'within 24" of ships with the Stealth trait'. Singular versus plural - in this case singular so one ship IMO. My question is on using Scout to redirect; if you roll 9+, "you may choose any...
