Another addition to this; if you have the Armitage or any other carrier-enabled ship, swap out whatever fighters you normally use and put them in instead.

Launch them at the start and set to 'Recall' so they follow you around. When you get close to your chosen freighter, select it and hit the 'Escort' command. This will keep the freighter's remaining shields up (combined with Tac Team) and may even heal the shields a bit. Once the frieghter's safe, recall and crack on to the next one. It's easier to do if you have the 'recall' and 'escort' commands on hotkeys.
