Re: Aircraft carriers & realism in space

Carrier-based fighters would work best for dropping fighters into atmospheric combat and recovering them after.

I've always seen space combat as more likely to be a mix of WW2 style capital ships and submarines... In dramatic terms submarines make sense because, like starships, they have to be self-contained against an inimical environment outside the hull...
