My main problem is that cap ship retreats favor gunships tremendously. Other ships gain no real benefit by retreating, since at best they may shake their pursuers but still have to trudge all the way back to the fight, often after having burned all their engine power.

Gunships though, due to their extreme long range, don't have to travel nearly as far to get back into an effective position. Worse, half the time they just seem to turn around right as their pursuer decides they won't catch the gunship in time and turns back, 2-shotting their former pursuer out of the sky. Also, gunships can be more effective at returning to a battle with low hull strength, since they can still probably get some more kills before anyone re-targets them...

What's the answer to this? Never pursue Gunships if they even hint at going back to the cap ship?

Turn around when they are at their cap ship. If you push them back there, everyone who isn't being dumb is immune to them. Watch for them to nose on out, then do it again. Never let them set up their little huts in space!
