Sojourn-class Fleet Carrier
With the every mounting danger that exists from the Klingon Imperial Navy's Carrier Command, the Federation called for the development and construction of a "pure" Federation Fleet Carrier. Turning to the Odyssey-class Cruiser, the Federation Starship Design Team applied some "minor" modifications to the hull frame to make room for the facilities that a carrier would need to operate an extended wing of Peregrine fighters. What came of this design is the Sojourd Fleet Carrier, a Fleet Carrier that owes a lot of its ancestry from the Odyssey Science Crusier, but also bolsters and increase in hull and shield strength. The Sojourn-class Fleet Carrier is equipped with the Federation's Quantum Warp Core (Universal Warp Core) that gives the Sojourn the power that is required to maintain a Quantum Slipstream for longer duration. Through the sure power of this Warp Core, the Sojourn has the capability to maintain a Quantum Slipstrem for 1 full minute. The Quantum Warp Core can be moved to other Federation starships. This Warp Core will increase that starship's ability to stay in a Quantum Slipstream for 50% longer (3 minutes for the Odyssey). The Quantum Warp Core gives the Sojourn a maximum Transwarp speed of Warp 15 while in Sector Space. When the Sojourn transits in to in-system space, the powerful Quantum Warp Core transfers power to sub-system to provide additional power (+10 to all sub-systems). The Sojourn-class Fleet Carrier can also be equipped with Aquarius Hanger pets. This gives it the ability to launch one Aquarius Destroyer per hanger slot for a total of 4 Aquarius Attack Ships.

When compared to an Odyssey-class, the Sojourn-class is 15% larger in length which is mainly in the Stardrive section. This makes the entire starship about the length of a Jem-Hadasr Dreadnought Carrier. The Sojourn has 4 hanger doors one each side and a single hanger door on the front and rear of the starship. This allows the fleet carrier to conduct launching and landing operations at t he same time. When equipped with the Aquarius Destroyer minor cosmetic changes is very apparent. The side hanger doors is replaced with the docking collar for the destroyer.
