High speed & maneuverability will beat any missile any day -- when
going faster than the missile, there's no way it can hit you.
One of my favorite ship designs is a thrust-8 cruiser with 3 "A" beams,
2 shields, and 3 PDAFS. It's expensive, but it has the maneuvering
to stay out of a missile's path (and get behind the opponent) and the
staying power needed to attack a capital ship.
