Still need a purpose..
How about some detatchable repair or turret bays, with the added bonus that if the ship is stationary it get substantial power bonuses and/or bonuses to ships within 10-15k..
Possibly with two more weapon slots than other T5 ships.
Ie: The ship can drop two turret platforms, complete with shields... Each of these have say 250k hitpoints, and sports 4 omnidirectional Dirsuptor Cannon turrets and 2 Heavy Photon/quantum turrets.
For the ship isself, once it is completely stationary is grants a minor repair (say 75 HP ticks) to all ships in range, as well as accuracy, defense and power bonuses.
That way, using one of these can give a major tactical advantage, but multiple would be less effective. (unlike today where their relative "power" increases exponentially as the number of ships increases)
