Starting this Thursday (May 3, 2012), around 10AM PDT, the new Caitian Atrox Carrier will be available for sale in the C-Store for 2,500 ZEN.
To deal with the increasing threat of the Klingons and the tactical advantage they have with their carrier ships, the Federation has called upon their member worlds for assistance.
In response, the Caitians made their fierce Atrox Carrier available to Starfleet. A true carrier, the Atrox has been updated by the Caitians and the Starfleet Corps of Engineers with modifications that give it some of the abilities of a science vessel, including subsystem targeting and bonuses to Shield and Auxiliary power. These abilities allow the Atrox to support its fighters as well as other ships in its fleet.
The Atrox comes standard with two hangar bays, each stocked with Caitian Stalker Fighters. These stealth fighters can mask their energy signature and are equipped with Tetryon Pulse Cannons and a Thoron Device. Caitian Stalker Fighters can be launched from any Flight Deck Cruiser or Carrier.

In addition to this new carrier, starting Thursday, we are introducing rare (blue) quality fighter-pets into the Dilithium store -- these will be available for both factions. More information about these will be revealed in the patch notes that will be posted Wednesday evening.
