Don't add a t5 Fed Carrier. Add a full blown Battleship instead.

At the moment the cruisers can be both tanks and support. I would imagine a battleship as being nothing but a tank, and would be thus geared appropriately. I would think added tac and engineering slots and BO's, and a loss of sci slots and BO's.
Its a pain in the ass to tell the difference between this thread and the one begging for fed carriers.
The precedent is set in 3 ways. Firstly the Akira is a carrier/torpedo boat....we know this is what it was designed for. Secondly The dominon war showed us fighters in the engagment and eluded to them being launched from a fed ship. Thridly the klingon carrier is in game now so cryptic could impliment something similar now considering the game mechanics are there sans a little tweaking.
We....the game do not need bigger and bigger ships, especially at this point, we need the middle fleshed out if anything. What you want isn't a "battleship" we have that in the Sov and star cruiser you want a dreadnaught. Maybe after the add more levels dreadnaughts make sense but they don't now at RA5.
There are a whole host of ships they could add on both sides to flesh out the lower ranks that would make much more sense....ie the excelsior.
