Capital Ship
A term used by the Terran Federation, the Laughter Hegemony states, and a number of other polities to refer to an interstellar warship of the first rank in size and armament. Examples include the System Control Ship, the Dreadnought and Superdreadnought, and finally the Pocketstar and the Battlestars (although some would define these latter as ISOs rather than ships).
