Link at Instapundit led me to Transterrestrial Musings - Aircraft Carriers In Space, which led me to Aircraft Carriers in Spac at Foreign Policy, of all places.
I always considered the space battles depicted in Babylon 5 to be pretty good; I liked the way that
Realistically, of course, the way you'd launch space fighters from a space ship would be... Well, maybe ask back in a decade or three. B5's USS Macon-esque pivoting launch rack--were I a writer for the show I would have had to work a reference to "Trapeze three in launch bay 4 is down for maintenance" into at least one show--seems more likely than a runway in vacuum, which would need either some sort of force field, or an elaborate Viper-size airlock system.
I also liked the "breeching pods" used for boarding operations. (Could have done without the Ruger Mini 14-armed Narn auxiliaries, though...)
