Actually federation Carriers should exist in my opinion.

because they do exist in Star Fleet Universe pen & paper tabletop games which were develloped under license, and are therefore authorized and in line with Cannon.

You can find out more here:

I actually played most 15 years ago, both the Amarillo Editions and also Played Star Trek: Starship tactical Combat Simulator from FASA.

I preferred FASA's system but liked many of the Rules in SFB, so I designed a House Rules version combining and merging the two systems together, spent sleepless night at the time brainstorming, editing, play-testing and re-editing the rules till it got satisfactory Great fun.

In any case, Carriers are not inaccurate for the Federation even if we may have not seen them in action directly in the Movies and Series.

It is also why not everyone is aware of their existence, you have to be more Fan than just watching the Series and Movies to discover them.
