Good idea but

You should make it so that the two sub-ships under your command add up to no more than 1 ship tier below yours, in any configuration. So if you fly a T5 ship, the biggest fleet you can have will be of size 4, consisting of 2 T1's or 1 T1 and 1 T2 (if you want to go in undergunning), 1 T1 and 1 T3, 2 T2's, or a single T4. That keeps it from being excessively powerful while still making it meaningful.
Should not be allowed for carriers or for any ships lower than T5 (i.e. make it RA1 and up only, from a command perspective). You should have to spend some command points (muuuuuch more expensive to command and heal T4's than T1's) to add these ships to your fleet and they should be subject to the same death penalty as that of the captain.
Of course the AI from, say, SFC3 to command your fleet will be a big challenge.
