Though other Earth Alliance ships can carry fighters, the number of fighters that they can carry are significantly limited. The Ulysses was created to solve this problem. Small and easily manufactured, the Ulysses can be created in large numbers, but just one would provide enough fighters to take the place of tens of other ships twice as large.

The Ulysses houses her fighters in a simple superstructure, fitting eight fighters in each 'cube' of the superstructure. The fighters are held in place with grapnels on theathers. Each fighter is serviced with divice similar to the Canadarm of the late 20th century.

Pilots are brought to and from their craft in a pod which is kept onboard the Ulysses. A pilot would enter the pod and enter the number of the dock at which their fighter is stationed. The pod would then be ferried to the service arm which would bring the pod to the cockpit. In the rear of the Ulysses is the entrance to the fighter repair bay. The bay can house up to 200 fighters for repairs at one time.

Due to the fact that the Ulysses is unarmed, she must remain in hyperspace, launching fighters through jump points. If the Ulysses needs to escape from the site of a battle, she opens a gate and pulls her fighters into place, safely, with gravimetric tractor beams.
