Thank you for the quick feedback. The difficulty of the battles was actually tricky to trim due to the impact of character level on NPC spawns - an issue that seems to affect small craft combat more than combat in starships with all their Boffs and device slots and weapon choices.
So essentially, the cruiser and the battleship are there as optional "tough" opponents. My Tac Lieutenant can actually bring them down without too much trouble, while my Tac VA is already somewhat distressed by the pairs of corvettes.
In case you're interested in more fighter-heavy action, I'm also planning an "all-out" fighter battle installment involving allied fighter wings, which should help even the odds, no matter whether you're Lt. or VA.
