Re: Aircraft carriers & realism in space

^But the thread title says "realism in space." I'm not talking about Star Trek, I'm talking about approaching the matter realistically.

Also, you're missing my point about horizons. It's not about hiding from detection. What I'm saying is that the reason aircraft carriers were invented was as a means of projecting force beyond the limits of where the carrier itself could travel. Maybe I should've said there are no coastlines in space.
