Why do ALL NPC's fly at only 1/4 impuls?

I thought you mean the NPC ships you have to escort somewhere when I saw the title. THAT is really annoying. There's a Lt. Cmdr patrol mission where you escort some freighter around 7 stations, and that thing is sooo damn slow, it takes twice as long as it would really take, because after you killed all mobs and passed all stations, that NPC ship is still at station 2 and you have to wait for it. THAT annoyed me each time I played it. But too slow enemies? I fly an escort, and never had that issue. And I do attacks like you describe. Just increase your turn rate, then you don't need the distance before you can make the second attack. *shrugs*
