Nice. But just 4 aircraft seems rather small for a carrier designation.

It is an aircraft carrier yes, however the Aquarions are not limited to planetside operations, Ocean vessels like this one serve at best, a peace-keeper role or FOB role, they aren't ment to take on large quantity's of anything really.

Most of the Empire's resources would be held on a capital ship in orbit, and sent down when needed.

Because of space travel, planetary navies have become redundant, the Aquarions are the only empire in the galaxy that still uses ocean faring warships, in a sense they are like adding an extra humvee with a 50cal to a convoy of tanks.

Yes it does, right now im working on the advanced 4th gen Aquarion Hinosaki class Interceptor. 

An advanced and slightly odd looking but iconic fighter craft of both Novus and the Aquarion Alliance which can fight in space or in atmosphere.
