The Suzerain-class of starships is the only class in Starfleet that is classified as a Fleet Carrier. Only six of which have been built.

Functions

Although they are equipped with a formidable anti-starfighter weapon system, fleet carriers were usually protected by screening ships and starfighters. The main fighting punch of a Fleet Carrier ship consisted of two or more wings of starfighters. Besides being a base ship for starfighters, Fleet Carriers are also fleet command vessels. Task force commanders and fleet flag officers often use them as their flagships.
