Just to add a bit of my knowledge in on this. I have been playing with carriers for a long time on both sides and I can tell you that the new Scorpions can out DPS the Peregrine thanks to all the fire DoTs (We are talking PvE here, as previously mentioned only a few pets make any difference in PvP).

Also, if your enemy has shields then having a Beam based weapon is great for knocking those down. Runabouts (especially Advanced) can lock down opponents and strip shields fast, they also slow with Chroniton torps making them great support.

However, if you REALLY need to cut shields down to nothing then Advanced Stalkers make Tachyon Drones and all other shield killers look PATHETIC. Run two bays of those and watch things like Elite Donatra's shields melt before your eyes in mere seconds. It is a beautiful thing.

Also... Stalkers tend to be evil against other players in PvP for the reason just mentioned AND because they knock down their Aux which can prevent good heals and slow opponent carriers launching speeds.

So, basically what I am saying is, DPS is NOT everything. It can be far more important how you USE your damage because you can deal a LOT of damage and fail to accomplish anything.
