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:
- Carrier Command - Attack - Sends your craft to attack your currently-selected target.
- Carrier Command - Escort - Sends your craft to escort your currently-selected ally.
- Carrier Command - Intercept - Orders your craft to intercept incoming mines, torpedoes, and small craft.
- Carrier Command - Recall - Orders your craft to return to the hangar and regenerate.
