Make the fighters unspam-ible but give them the abilty to be summoned at a key stroke. This way you get your "X" amount of fighter pets upon activation and retain them through heal support or can resummon them to battle if thier numbers get too low. Boost the fighter in hull/shields or speed related defense to offset the non-spam them and make thier numbers thier biggest asset.
Also I believe that fighters should have more choices that come in different configurations and types such as Bomber, Strike fighter, anti-torpedo, etc.
Keep your BoPs the same as the fighters with no changes to thier summoned numbers as they should be just about balanced out, with maybe a slight decrease to the damage range of thier torps. Keep them on the same rules as the fighter as for as resummoning.
Increase the Carriers Pet usage by giving them more combat choice to launch from thier launch bays such as ECM/ECCM ships, Breaching pods, and other non-fighter related carrier support vechiles.
