Will there be fleets?
I know there is talk of carrier ships that can have starships docked and launched, but will players be able to command fleets of varied starships? I have also noticed that enemy starships seem to call on reinforcements and hunt in groups, and I just wanted to know if players will be able to do the same thing.

The short answer: nope.

The long answer: The Devs have stated that the intent of the game is to follow the player and their ship for the extent of KV, not to create empires. I believe that there was talk that there will be a more sophisticated faction system with your involvement with allies in fleet operations, but in general, you will control one ship, with possible fighters or drones for carrier types.

I dunno if you'd be able to call in allies for help or not though, but that might be a thing. But complex control, I think not.

This made me smile.

Maybe they have a mission or two where you can control a fleet or just be part of a fleet

Nop.

Except if by fleet, you mean a fleet of drones or fighters while being a carrier.

If you get your reputation high enough, you might be able to join the faction, but I doubt it, but who know.

You never know you might be able be part as a fleet, maybe not control them.... Basicly I mean it might have a mission where you have back up. If you want to control a fleet then this game is not really for you but a RTS type of game is.

I didn't buy the game in hopes of fleet command, I have plenty of RTS games for that, just thought it would be a neat addition. I hope a fleet system is involved in multiplayer though, where you can fly alongside other players in an armada. Anyaway, I really don't care if there are no fleets, as the game is good enough as it is.

Maybe they still have not confirmed mutliplayer yet.....
But in another post Dakili brought up a good point about MP, having one computer host while other join in like Minecraft might be do-able.

I'm pretty sure they are going to release a multiplayer, but from the posts i've read the devs say they need a solid SP game first, so multiplayer would be the last addition.

The project is still way to early to tell..
