My thought was as to whether or not a space fighter would be useful in space warfare.
See, the problem here is that if your figheers have to slow down to engage...having a fighter screen is impossible. As all the enemy has to do is gun their engines, and zip past dog fighting range and move in for the kill on your capitol ships.
