As primarily an Escort captain, I totally agree. We already get a bonus to defence based on speed, but yeah - probably not enough if the hull / shields were to be adjusted to make the ships "less tanky". If this was all adjusted correctly this system IMO could work really well.
Personally I've used these strafing runs with the present escorts (esp. the bugship) as I race in with cannons blazing, then have my torps firing from the rear as I pass by... but this is only really useful in things like Cure Space etc. against the generators etc. as ship targets will (usually) have full shields at the rear - making this useless against other targets (unless you use the torps with 50% shield penetration).
