With the growth in popularity of Shock and Awe techniques, a renewed interest in bigger and more impressive fleets swept the universe's militaries. The Capital Ship Doctrine became widely accepted practice for many military planners hoping to expand their Battleship contingent. These new developments also led to the refinement of the classic Invasion Ship, in hopes of tilting the balance of warfare even further towards the offensive. However, as the popularity of massive, powerful starships increased, a new group of pioneers began to study the use of the Carrier. Potentially capable of overwhelming the most powerful of Battleships, Carriers were designed to serve as mobile bases for the smaller, Squadron-based spacecraft which had seen an increase in usage.
