Well, we saw several fighters in the later battles of the dominion war. And if there are fighters, there should be Carriers.
But then again Caitians ? A race completly irrelevant to Star Trek lore ? What about Andorians, Bajorans, Bolians, Trill, ... just to name a few ?
Maybe it is my personal dislike for most Cryptic designed ships. I mean compare those fugly thincans called fleet escorts to Defiant or Prometheus...

Now that I think about it, fighters were a total failure in DS9. The Cardassians made short work of them while the fighters themselves barely scratched the Galors.

Caitian because it it was a ship tied to a major hard canon race, CBS might feel more pressure to include it as canon in anything they might do. This way they have more flexibility with respect to whether to adopt it or not, and more freedom to do their own thing should they so wish.

um as far as i can remember, in the episode ' sacrifice of angels' the final attack wave of fighters shown before the galors chase after said fighters, they take out a galor quite spectacularly

I'm sort of hopefully optimistic about the carrier. I figure it'll be a more maneuverable Kar'fi with maybe a missing weapon slot . Oh, I'm hoping for the Escort/Science version.
