A carrier is a category of capital ships common in the Terran Confederation and the Kilrathi Empire. A carrier was the base for starfighters.

Terran carriers had multiple jump engines that left a unique jump trace with recognizable pattern.[1] A carrier had a Bridge with Bridge officers,[2] and a flight deck with flight deck technicians.[3] They made use of the Automated Carrier Landing System.

The Terran Confederation Armed Forces CommNet served Terran carriers and bases.
