Why do the Feds have no carriers?

A federation carrier would be nice *cough* Akira proper use *cough*, however, the Klink faction has so little content I would be upset to take this particular cookie away from them.
Also the peregrine fighter is warp capable with a reasonably long range. This would mean that starfleet would not normally employ a carrier, as the ship would need to be massive, but would employ a fleet tender. This would probably have a low sensor profile and sit quite a few light years from the battlefield to avoid ambush. Any damaged fighters would simply return there for repair and rearm.
