I assign a medic to a shit, but the stupid medic circles around it, and then goes right in front of the ship where the enemy first is.
They should have some sort of defensive mode where they hide.
They are really kinda pointless, as soon as you are in a fight, the medic jumps right in front of the battle. The ships are too slow to return to a medic in another area. The medics should be able to travel with them.
