I don't think the Feds should have a combat oriented style shuttle/fighter like system, nor anything like a dedicated carrier. However, it would be interesting ships large enough to hold a runabout/flyer to be able to launch them in a support manner. Perhaps sort of like a device battery but instead of it being used on you, it launches a runabout/flyer to your ally who is further than 10km to drop off supplies such as small hull repair or perhaps power boost, assuming they were not shot down first.

Or, if crew ever becomes useful again and becomes semi-limited, Cruisers could use runabouts/flyers to transport additional crew to the fleet.

Just a thought.
