Basic Description

The Malone class super carrier, designed and developed by Fleet Admiral Harold Malone, the then Starfleet Commander. This was the first purpose built carrier in Starfleet that wasn't a variant of a different starship design, or a bastardized strip-out of a standard class.

The Malone Class is designed to carry an entire Group of fighters, and launch them rapidly from launch tubes built into the side of the ship. At any given time, the ship can launch an entire wing of fighters in under fifteen seconds along her port and starboard sides. There are main landing bays in the front and aft of the ship for returning craft.

Due to the nature of the ship, she cannot operate independently, as she is weakly armed and only has defensive ordinance. Therefore the Malone class is built to be the backbone of a Battle Group, acting as the flagship with dedicated command facilities on board to house a flag officer.
