The biggest problem is that they have the hull strength of your average shuttlecraft, so if the enemy targets them, they don't last very long, and you can't repair them. Best suggestion is to use the Scorpion fighters as an attempt to draw enemy fire from your drones.

Of course, I also have an Engineering character commanding the ship, which probably helps.
What boff abilities did you go for, especially the science based ones?

I tried the varanus tonight

I just didn't really like it much. Parked it and re-tooled my Vuqov carrier.

It really did just come off as a weak science ship. Guess I thought actually being a science captain might make it better but it was just as bad as my fed engineer in a sci (which I tried before)
