That's damn fast.
If the space fighters can go even half that speed then they're so fast that using them in combat makes plenty of sense considering they could cover 300,000 miles (the Star Trek weapon example) in about 3.5 minutes.
Unfortunately going at those speeds I don't think you could dog fight with eachother.
