And yes, in hard-canon fighters have no place in a navy with force fields, cloaking devices have no place on Federation ships, and Pakleds have no place in Starfleet. But hard canon takes a back seat to the needs of the MMO medium.
Actually fighter do have a role, as a sort of support. Is that role as big as a capital ship? No. But to add to larger ships total firepower at a lower cost per unit.
