Fighers are needed to protect a vulnerable mothership or attack a target while the mothership/base remains out of harms way. However, starships can protect themselves and offer much greater firepower and utility than a fighter, thus fighters are irrelevant in Star Trek and are essentially flying coffins.
Right and this isnt a desperate situation, war against the Klingons the Romulans the Dominion the mirror universe the Borg the hirogen and last but not least the iconians. humm seems like a desperate time to me i would use everything i could to stay alive never mind win.
also my ship is pretty large and i quite like being able to deploy fighters to harry the enemy and take a bit of fire off of me so that i can come around and bring down my full weapons might on the enemy.

exactly what i was saying it feels odd being able to use scorpion fighters i just want to be able to launch fed fighters
