In my experience with the Kar'fi, Hangar pets are enormous fun but can't be relied upon to be the main source of either damage or defence for your ship.

I've got both the Advanced S'kul Fighters and the Frigates and out of the two prefer the Frigates because they're more robust. But all of the issues you've mentioned are still present so I guess I use them as an extra 'irritant' rather than any great source of damage (plus they help distract mobs from me).

So I guess what I'm saying is that whilst the pets are nice (and I agree completely that they could do with better AI) when you're putting your carrier together, remember to build it as if it had no pets since if you can attack/defend without them then they'll just be that much more useful to you and annoying to your opposition.
