What is the point of the Glet starships?

These are three Sarn starships worth only 5 VP. They have veils, but minimal defenses other than that. Most importantly, they have no weapon systems whatsoever.

The Nitz have 7 starships worth less victory points, but all of them have at least at least one d8 torpedo to fire. The Gar have two starships worth less victory points that use a d6 torpedo die. The Gar also have one ship worth less victory points that has not only an impressive torpedo but also a beam weapon.

The Glet starships are worth more victory points than all of these if destroyed, yet they have no torpedo launchers or any other kind of weapon. This means they can't use Starship Based Strike Craft, Interceptors, Blaze Away, or Fire Combat Weapons cards.

What *can* you do with these ships? What are they there for? Are they simply there to provide target practice or easy battle victories for the enemy?

Any ideas?

These ships all have 4 Troops, the most of all of their ships. When using the "optional" troops rule, they become very valuable, and you definitely don't want the enemy using them as target practice! This is one of the reasons all of the optional rules really should be used a soon as possible.
