Sadly the Runabouts at least appear to have been buffed at some point, I can't remember their exact hitpoint values but they're tough little nuggets. The Tholian spamlets are about on par in my experience as well. Says a lot that these things became more durable while carrier DOffs were released with no corresponding balance to offset the DOff bonuses, it's almost like Cryptic wants to pander to their 2,500 Zen purchasing playerbase

I've made my peace with carriers at this point, I still think they're stupid (the idea of using Danubes as dedicated single-man fighters is absolutely baffling, let alone contrary to Fed ethics) and detrimental to the game but people buy thousands of them so I doubt Cryptic is going to backpedal over it.
