would you recommend scorpion fighters?

OP: just use them. if you want DPS, DPS is what they give. the very rare ones deal higher DPS than the peregrines, thanks to the fact that plasma torps deal more dps naturally than quantums, and the bleedthrough plasma is just a bonus, that acts like a transphasic torp. the change from phaser to plasma weapons also increase their DPS over the peregrines (however the margin is extremely low).
the ultra rare scorpions are the best DPS pets in game at the moment. if anyone reaches tier 5 science, then we will see what the ultra rare peregrines are all about, wheter they can compete with the scorpions or not.
with the heavy plasma torps my scorpions deal around 1000-1500 DPS a game, so on the Vesta, I do not even notice the absence of one front DHC (while my pets clear incoming torps and such).
the only drawback is that the heavy plasma torps will have an AoE plasma effect, so you can catch plasma fire if you are close to the impact (though I never really saw it as a big problem, its not too dmging to me.
