The Yorktown class carrier was designed to work around the
limitations of the Early warp drive systems, ships that had long
enough range to reach deep inside Romulan space had to be large, and
as such had poor manoeuvrability. The Yorktown carried 5 Minotaur
class Strike vessels that could strike fast at enemy targets and
then return to the mother ship for rearming or extraction.
