Yeah, I've gotta agree that photonic fleet doesn't make much sense outside of the game. I once tried to rationalize it by imagining that my ship was launching drone ships armed with phasers, torpedoes, and a holocloak, but then you have the problem of why you'd need the holocloak in the first place.
That being said, I do really like the photonic fleet as-is. I usually pilot sci ships, so I naturally need whatever dps help I can get. It always makes those "destroy 6 enemy ship squads" missions go faster, since I can just activate the fleet when I meet the last BB and get out quicker. I think Munstrum's suggestion makes a lot of sense (and it'd certainly be awesome in PvP), but I don't want to lose my firepower in the daily emblem grind.
