Point Defense turret  set to defense, target fighters and torpedoes right?

I have a carrier I set back with other support roles. If I set that carrier to attack it launches it fighters and the carrier will move to engage the enemy with its pd turrets, I don't want it to do that.

 If I remove the pd turrets and set to attack, it will launch fighters and the carrier stays stationary but, now its defenseless if a torpedo is fired.

 Is this a bug, or the way I am trying to play? What do u think of this feature of ps turrets firing at anything that passes by while in defense

Currently it is not possible to have the point defense weapons do only that, they prioritize fighters/torpedoes over other enemies but will still target them.

So it is not a bug, but definately a feature that needs more fleshing out because one general approach to ship orders ain't working.
