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.
sorry, but I extremely dislike the look of this ship, the idea I like but it looks plain ugly.

Notes: Yes, I am aware of the fact the the image for the gryphon says its a scarab and vise versa... the descriptions of the fighters from Memory Beta match the images and Ive matched them to the name of the fighter.
Gryphon looks like a Sabre. Scarab looks like a Defiant. No... they are not as large as those starships. They are fighter sized.
I played around with limiting the Typhon to only be allowed to mount turrets, as it only mounted Pulse phaser turrets in Invasion, but didnt go with that idea.
The carriers otherwise subpar (when compared to other larger 2 hangar bay carriers) stats (crew, hull, shielding, etc.) are balanced with its very large selection of fighters, 4 of which can only be mounted by the Typhon herself. This large selection of fighters allows the Typhon to fulfill a large variety of roles on the battlefield. The carriers comes with the Mk 1 Valkyrie fighters, and the Mk 2, Mk 3, Orca, Gryphon, and Scarab fighters may be purchased from the applicable store.
typhon, very much like the look of this ship. I would buy it in a second IF it came with 2 or more hanger bays. personally id like this:
1) 4 hanger bays with 15 km range (making this ship purely a carrier) with 3 fore or aft weapons with ONLY 2 turrets and a torp fore/aft
2) 2 hanger bays with 2 beam arrays and a 180 degree torp fore/aft
for sure this should be able to launch defiants or the aquarius (1 bay would launch 2)
Fleet Multi Vector Advanced Escort
Resistance is futile
