Origin's Official Guide to Wing Commander Prophecy
This carrier is one of the midrange Alien ships, measuring approximately as large as the Midway. The Leviathan is not a vessel noted for its own offensive capabilities, and carries no anti-ship armament of its own, other than the large number of launch tubes for a variety of alien fighters.
The sheer number of fighters and interceptors that it carries is daunting -- as many as several hundred fighters might be internally docked, ready to be launched. It is also a dual-purpose craft, delivering them to locations that would otherwise be out of range.
The notable feature about the Leviathan is that beneath its formidable shields it has rather flimsy armor. Once its shields have been knocked out, it isn't that difficult for a cap ship to puncture its hull, especially on the vulnerable fore and aft quadrants. There are shield emitters for the engines, the bridge and the launchers, and if any of these can be destroyed, the ship is a much easier target. WHile the goal of attacking any carrier is to destroy it before the majority of the fighters are launched, its a real trick to do that under combat conditions.

Description: The alien carrier is large, roughly the size of TCS Midway, and sports frightening anti-fighter defenses. It bristles with launch tubes for all types of alien fighters, but carries no anti-shipping armaments of its own. The number of fighters embarked may be as high as several hundred, and at times the ship might also serve as a mobile base for fast attack craft. It is well-shielded but lightly armored, and therefore extremely vulnerable to torpedo attack once its shields have been compromised.
