Just for your consideration, I've used this list with great succes for a while. I know it has a San Fran, but I've found out that if your play safe with your troop ship you can actually make it usefull and you can always replace it with a Madrid and a couple of strike carriers if you'd like.

Key parts for this list are the Avalon/Berlin group, which can murder everything at this points level. Double Lima gives you flexibility to manoeuvre those BTL's on target while maintaining range. Second key group are the Seattles, while not great offensive carriers, they are decent gunships. I treat them as AA cruisers basically, using their launch capacity mostly for fighters and an opportunistic bomber strike. Those mass drivers put out reliable damage.
