...quite yet.

Note this is all speculation:

There has been chatter/rumours about a Tier 6 rank (Admiral or Fleet Admiral) and ship class as yet to be determined. Although not the monster you describe (and NO, not the Jupiter class sin-with-4-nacelles), the T6 ships will gain the ability to have control over other Starfleet vessels in the same way we now have carriers. Carrier commands work with fleet resources (called in support ships) already to a limited degree.

In essence you can promote your boffs to command other ships you own to assemble a task-force for resources you already possess.

How this will work in current game play - where might them be used, etc - is something STO likely is working on.
