Uncompromising in its brutal authority, the Dominion Carrier is built to establish control and dominance.
  — In-Game Description 

General

The Dominion Carrier is a Tier 5 hull with extra offensive power in the form of hangar slots and mass reductions.

As a carrier, this ship generates a support field that improves the combat effectiveness of other friendly ships, making it the centerpiece of a fleet.

Strategy and Setup

Advantages

With an insane 6 hangar slots and the ability to equip powerful but tier-locked squadrons such as the Gladiator Swarm, the Dominion Carrier is sure to rain devastation on its enemies, quickly taking out opponents who do not have adequate squadron defense. It can easily achieve more DPS than a fully-maxed Xeno Division Hull, making them worthwhile well into Tier 6.

The Mercury Beam is exclusive to the Dominion Carrier. As a carrier-mounted ship weapon, it improves your overall squadron defense and deals direct damage against enemy ships.

It projects the Agility Field, enabling your battleships to effortlessly kite enemy cruisers, while your cutters and frigates can quickly catch up to enemy battleships.

Disadvantages

While the Dominion Carrier packs a punch, it is vulnerable due to limited armor slots, unlike the Freyja Carrier. Enemies will almost always target this ship first due to its threat level, so make sure to block incoming fire with tanky cruisers and/or push it away from enemies using cutters.

A decent Dominion Carrier would have Spectre Squadrons, but most people equip Ranger Swarms nowadays due to their excellent firepower and range. Unfortunately, Swarm Dominions take weeks to refit and put quite a strain on your build queue.

Trivia

  • It was believed to be called the Fenrir Carrier due to its in-game file name.
  • Many players expected the carrier to have a Phase Shifter because there were already two carriers with the Ion Field and two with the Agility Field.
  • The Dominion Carrier opens up its hanger ramps, revealing a cyan-coloured hangar when it launches squadrons.
