Proud justice certainly DOES NOT mean a carrier

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.

in my opinion this ship
http://www.stowiki.org/Federation_Dreadnought
can be slightly redesigned and reworked as a True Federation carrier.

but thats just my opinion.

it would be cool to use Defiant as a hanger bay pet

You know what would also be fair? KDF having 50+ Unique Story Missions with mission rewards like the Coveriant Personal Shield, Overcharged Plasma Sniper, Flux Chronitons, Polarized Tetryon Beam Arrays. THAN we can talk about fair.

Your sarcasm is unwarranted. I was referring to the excuse used for the USS Typhon, from Star Trek Invasion. The ship was referred to as, "a four nacelled Mobile Fortress/Carrier armed with Turret-mounted Type 10 Pulse Phasers and Quantum Torpedoes."

I am hoping that Cryptic releases an Official Federation of Planets Carrier that is on par with the Recluse and the KDF Carrier.
Anytime you make a thread asking for Starfleet things based on the merit of fairness compared to the KDF, you automatically forfeit the thread.

I think they should convert the Jupiter class blimp to a playable Fed carrier.

As soon as the KDF gets this then it's fair for the Fed to get a new carrier.
How about levels 1-50? Then we can talk

You do realize if this happens I'm going to have to name it the Macon right?
