I think Starfleet's response to all their captains dragging their asses home in half destroyed ships crying "Carriers melted us!" would not be "Well, guess we need to get some carriers of our own". It would be "Time to roll out something that melts carriers".
I think this ship is (or should be) the Dreadnought Cruiser. It's design suggests that it is best used against big, slow targets that aren't going to outrun it or get out of it's forward guns easily.
Piloting one of these as an Engineer i've had mixed results using it to combat carriers. I can easily tank the minions and the carrier itself and certainly put out more hurt than i could in my AC or SC, but i think with a more co-ordinated team, and maybe a Tactical captain at the helm, the Dreadnought Cruiser could be the way to deal with carriers.
