Don't worry about the flagship. Just assemble your personal ultimate battle squadron of 12 ships. And they have to be ships that can be acquired in the game, you can't have 6 Ur-Quan and 6 Kohr-Ar unless there's some way to acquire those ships and that many that I haven't heard of.

That's 17 ships. The limit's 12, unless there's a way to increase your fleet size. If there is a way, please tell me.

I agree. yehat/utwig makes more sense to me (both have shields and good range).

My favorite squadron is 2 spathi, 2 arilou, 2 pkunk, 2 utwig, 2 orz, 2 chmmr.

I wouldn't mind having syreens in my squad, but normally by the time I get them allied, I'm about ready to beat the game, and my syreen vs. quan skills need improvement, so I don't go for them.

Supermelee or in-game?

In-game, I go for 4 spathi (for the 'quan, both flavors, also the VUX), 3 cruisers (for the Druuge and Thraddash), 2 Orz (for the Ilwrath). 1 Pkunk for the Sa-Matra, 1 Chmmr for finishing off the fireballs.

I usually take out the Mycon with the tug, but if the tug isn't battleworthy, I will use Arilou.

Supermelee:

2 Kohr-Ah, 1 Chmmr, 2 Supox, 2 Spathi, 3 Androsynth, 1 Orz, 1 Chenjesu. Is that full? I forget.

In-game. Supermelee has a limit of 14, and you can acquire Ur-Quan and Kohr-Ah.

Well, of course. But where do you put the portraits? It seems like we'd have to radically alter the fleet display.
