I'd like to use carriers, to bring their squad of strike craft with as I attack another system. I am finding this difficult. My fighters like to fly around in friendly systems (possibly chasing intruders). When the carrier sets off they tend to make their own way, arriving individually to be picked off.
How/what is the simplest way to get your fighters inside your carriers as they travel. (Preferably not involving having to remember to have to do something to a carrier before it sets off.)
