BUT I think a true carrier would be a Galaxy Class upgrade and maybe do justice to this proud class of ship once and for all.
Unlikely.

Why?

You've already got the Gal-X and the refit (blanking on the name, Venture I think?).

Plus, to mechanically make a Galaxy a carrier, one would have to both hollow out the saucer to make room for more than a token number of craft, and completely rework the access points. Even doing that, I don't think it would be plausible to see things like the Aquarius flying inside the hull of a Galaxy.

Simply put, for a frigate launching Fed-side carrier, it's going to need to be something much larger, and a "less than standard" design.
