Unfortunately there really isn't a way to resolve a conflict without playing out the battles.  If you wished to avoid that you could use the ground combat rules with space craft (sum up the PV of all the ships in the two fleets and roll dice to determine how much losses happened) until one side or the other was defeated.  I think there is some sort of resolution system to sort out two NPRs in one system that you could look at as well.

But really the point of starfire campaigns is to generate interesting battles to fight out...

The defense of the convoy did not go as it should:
The destroyer 'Guardian' was assigned to protect the convoy, which was attacked by three corvettes. As a result of the battle, all the transport freighters were destroyed. The destroyer, suffered heavy damage.
The enemy lost two corvettes and the third was heavily damaged.

I have also included ship tokens that I created myself and used in this battle.

I guess this would be a strategic loss for the destroyer, as it lost its transports.  However, it was out-massed by the corvettes, so well-done for surviving, I guess.

Well, when the first Corvette blew up, I was full of hope.
Initially, CT where very unlucky with scoring hits. But when they caught up with the FT, it was a massacre...
And when one of them managed to get in the destroyer's blind spot and take out some of its engines, it was over.

I wonder if it is at all possible to win this scenario as a destroyer?

Good question.  The destroyer is out-massed by the corvettes, which means it's in trouble from the first.  The only saving grace, from the destroyer's point of view, is that the corvettes will be distracted by firing at the freighters, allowing it to engage the corvettes.  However, given that the corvettes' primary mission is to take out the freighters, not the destroyer, they can do what I suspected happened here, distract the destroyer with one of the corvettes and send the other two after the freighters.  If the freighters are bunched up, the destroyer might have a chance to defend them, otherwise it's going to be a free-for-all for the other two corvettes.  This might be an interesting scenario for a newbie vs an experienced player, with the experienced player taking the destroyer.
