Carrier commands are a capability of all Carriers and Flight Deck Carriers, as well as Strike Wing Escorts, Flight Deck Raptors, Dreadnought Cruisers, Science Dreadnoughts and Multi-Mission Science Vessels. Specifically, the term Carrier Commands refers to a set of four space abilities that are innate to these types of vessel.

These four abilities allow a player to control carrier pets in space. When activated they set the combat of all carrier pets that are currently summoned to either aggressive or defensive, and can make them move out to the currently selected target or back to the player's ship. Carrier commands are not used to summon or unsummon carrier pets.

For Console gamers commands are activated (PS4/R3) during combat situation.


There are four commands that can be given to carrier Space Fighters:

Both ship and carrier pets can get bonuses when in certain modes if Flight Deck Officers are placed on the active roster (note bonuses do stack):


  • These commands were introduced in season 5, previously Space Fighter's behavior was implicit and could not be directly controlled by the player.
  • A new UI and additional features were added on 25th July 2013
