Seems to me the best way to deal with this problem is to snooker the
defenders into committing to where you are not. You do this buy bringing
in FTL drones that are effectively decoys and look like something
they're not.

If the defender can sit pat and cover a few bases he's good. If he has
to try to cover shipping, and more high value targets than he has task
forces for, it'll get interesting.
