As for the hanger issue, I have started to say that in-game carriers or hybrid carriers have what are known as "combat hanger bays" As opposed to the standard hanger bays that all Starships have.

It is one thing to launch a shuttle. It is another thing to launch a fighter craft in an active battle. So a carrier will have a hanger bay that has a Fast launch system, Shielding and screening to protect the fighters as they engage, And some sort of quick retrieval system in order to retreat quickly if needed.

The Odyssey class is an exploration and flagship mostly. So it has not been designed to have a combat hanger.

As for the DDB in the aft, A Tricolbat torp is a better determent for tailgater
