A Carrier is a type of Capital Ship specifically designed to transport smaller ships. Carriers are very large ships that can have hundreds or thousands of crew members. Aside from the ships they transport, Carriers have few or no weapons of their own. When they are part of a military fleet, they rely on warships to escort them and provide them with protection.
Fleet Carrier Edit
Flight Operations Carrier Edit
Flight Operations Carriers are models of Megaships, such as the Wells-class Carrier, with five Landing Pads. Instead of transporting and deploying large numbers of ships, these Megaships are often stationary and fill the role of small stations once they arrive at their destination. The Gnosis is a rare example of a Flight Operations Carrier that jumps between systems frequently.
