Science-Fiction Adventure in the Far Future
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.
