This.

In these missions it's a race to blow up as many enemies in as little time as possible, preferably denying your team members their kills in the process.

I find myself alpha striking things that other players have just lined up their shots for, just to make sure they don't get the damage count for those ships - and feel kind of bad about it afterwards, because I know it annoys me to no end if people do that when I'm running a cruiser/sci ship.

The thing is, more stats can easily be tracked, as demonstrated in the PvP scoring tables and the various damage-taken and -healed accolades. So, even if scoring based on team-wide effort is out of the question, it should be doable to create a scoring method that is slightly fairer to people flying non-escorts or Kar'fi's.
