"This should be fun." - Daniel Jackson to the rest of the bridge crew upon seeing the massed Iconian fleet approaching earth.

The USS Belisknir is a modified Akira Class Starship. While it began life as an Akira, it was quickly converted to fill a need in Starfleet for a front line carrier after the Iconian war started. It was the midway project that eventually led to the introduction of the Alita Class Heavy Escort Carrier.
