For PVE, yes it can be used. Martial Arts attacks are a little bit quicker than weapon attacks and do less damage, but will often interupt. The advantage to using weapons is greater damage, and modifiers like [accurate] or [Borg]

You can improve your damage from Martial Arts as a tactical officer. There is a close combat skill, and a Close combat kit that give you extra moves when fighting hand to hand.

The important part about Martial Arts, armed and unarmed, is learning about combos. I think there is a ground combat sticky thread in the academy about them. Basically 3 strikes bbear handed in the correct sequence performs a different manuver, that has secondary effects.
