Where did you see any evidence that there are bigger ships, to give you this impression ?
I just wonder why you'd call a 'Light Cruiser' a flagship like Pike did in the first film?
Because flagships are not always or even usually the largest or most powerful ship in any particular fleet. Strictly speaking, the flagship of the U.S. 7th Fleet wouldn't even classify as a light cruiser and is half the size of the supercarriers under its command.
Yeah. But I don't really think that is the definition of flagship they were using.
