I've always seen space combat as more likely to be a mix of WW2 style capital ships and submarines... In dramatic terms submarines make sense because, like starships, they have to be self-contained against an inimical environment outside the hull...
I agree, but lean more toward the submarine model myself.

I would recommend David Gerrold's novel Starhunt (also published as Yesterday's Children) as an example of how that type of space combat might look.
