If any ship is going to be a carrier, it should be the Akira. That was the main design of that ship. At the start of battle it would lanuch sevral small fighters, and then support them as a torpedo boat. Am I saying the feds need a carrier, no, only that if we get one it should be inline with canon. The new Enterprise does not need to be a carrier, It needs to be a destroyer.

Edit: I found this interesting.

This is from the Deep Space Nine Technical Manual for the Akira

Just thought that was interesting.
