Science-Fiction Adventure in the Far Future
Carriers

Starships designed to carry large numbers of small combat vessels, termed either fighters or system defence boats, to screen the battle fleet or support a planetary invasion. The smaller craft are arranged into groupings known as carried squadrons.

Fighters and light SD Bs are little more than an annoying distraction in a major fleet action, but they can be extremely effective against ships of cruiser class or less.
