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, and a flight deck with flight deck technicians.[2] They made use of the Automated Carrier Landing System.

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

History

Kilrathi fast carriers participated in the McAuliffe Ambush. Some of them belonged to the Second Fleet of the Claw.

In the early Terran-Kilrathi War, Kilrathi carrier forces also attacked Hellespont and Tartarus.[3]

Later in the war, 2 Kilrathi carriers approached the Tesla system.[4]
