 Carrier PetsCarrier Pets are small, lightweight vessels that can be deployed from ships with hangar bays.
Most are extremely agile, and many have different roles, such as direct damage dealing, debuffing, or supporting friendly vessels. They operate in large numbers, but due to their weak shields and hull, they are easily dispatched.
Whist not individually controlled, players can dispatch orders and commands though the use of carrier commands, which is available on any ship capable of deploying carrier pets.
