I'm sleep deprived and at work, so feel free to take what I say and change it. But, we all know the thargoids are moving into human territory pretty fast. They are less than 100 light years from sol. And unless the federal capital ships undergo a MAJOR refit, theres not much the federal navy is going to do to stop them. BUT! The alliance is fighting the thargoids head on. So, what if the Alliance started a project to build a small fleet of mega ships, kinda like the Gnosis, but built for battle, and specifically, AX battle. The ships would be built just like any other mega ship is in game, with community projects in game. The ships would be heavily armored and shielded, and armed to the teeth with AX weapons and AX fighters. This way, while within a short range of the mega ship, even Novice thargoid hunters could survive while taking in on huge thargoid ships. You could dock your ship with these vessels, they would jump to the nearest system infested with thargoids and begin purging the system. Throughout the course of a week, the mega ship will move through the system and independent pilots will aid and fight the thargoids, with the goal of drawing them to the mega ship where they can be overwhelmed and have their remains salvaged with the aim of researching their technology.
