Agreed on trying out various universal console (especially if you already have them). I have the entire collection on the KDF side. I'm not as impressed with the Fed uni consoles, but there are a few more that I might pick up. I don't think the Fed side has a barrier shield console.
Yeah, I whiffed on the Barrier Shield, just replace that with the Point Defense System. My main point was this: a carrier does not play like a normal science vessel. You do not try to keep the nose on the target, you play a carrier more like a cruiser. If you build a beam boat, which I recommend, you fire broadsides. Obviously, a turret boat doesn't need to worry about relative positions, because of the 360 degree field of fire. That's the attraction of a turret boat.

The kittycarrier seems to be in line with the Vo'quv/Vod'leh, which means you crank out fighters as fast as possible and support them as best you can.
