The USS Saratoga is a fictional starship in the science fiction television series Space: Above and Beyond. The Saratoga is the home base for the 58th Marine Fighter Squadron.

General information Edit

USS Saratoga (SCVN-2812) is the 13th ship of the John F. Kennedy (SCVN-2800)-class space carriers. Saratoga was built by Aero-Tech Space Division in the James Lovell Orbital Assembly Facility. Other Kennedy-class carriers mentioned or seen in the series include USS Colin Powell (SCVN-2801), USS Yorktown (SCVN-2802 ) and the ill-fated USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (SCVN-2807). Yorktown was the former base of the 127th "Angry Angels" Squadron and was badly damaged in the initial engagement with the Chigs, while the Eisenhower was ambushed by a Chig fleet and completely destroyed.

The Saratoga is commanded by Commodore Glenn Ross, and carries numerous squadrons of Hammerheads and other combat aircraft. It also carries a number of ISSCV transport vehicles and serve as a landing platform for Marine infantry combat operations. Saratoga also carries a large contingent of Marines.

The hull code SCVN stands for Space Multi-purpose Aircraft Carrier (Nuclear-Propulsion)
