Ok firstly, dragon "mercs" most likely won't be actual mercenaries who fight in order to make money so they could buy beer & virgins. 'Merc' is just a convenient term we use, in truth Dragons will most likely be part of the story somehow and will have some kind of a plot-based reason for joining the player.
Secondly, as the faction was (and probably still is) originally planned, there were only a few "true" dragons who can actually fly and/or breather fire. The bulk of the dragon factions' forces consists of Drakes, half-orc, half-dragon foot soldiers (and whatever else needs doing) who more resemble regular infantry.
So basically, yes, they will need ships (or some other means of crossing water) as most of them will still be grounded.
The first duty of every Starfleet officer is to the truth, whether it's scientific truth or historical truth or personal truth! It is the guiding principle on which Starfleet is based! *Jean-Luc Picard*
