Re: Aircraft carriers & realism in space

Maybe there's something I'm not getting, but surely missiles (which travel in a straight line) would be too easy for the enemy to shoot down?

In any case, I don't understand why we're so concerned about realism. That's obviously not going to apply in any show or film. There will be the kind of combat that looks cool, and that casual viewers expect to find. Anything beyond that is not going to be needed.
