As I get better and better at this game, I find that for me, if I find Sivermist relatively early - I run from them and do not develop anything near them. They eat up so much resources and my time to fight them. In the later game when I have some mega-bad ass-ships, then I hit them with whole fleets.
Speaking of which, Jeeves, I do not doubt you, but that ship you speak of with just 4 Ion and its other weapons.., I am thinking you intensely micromanage the attack on the Silvermist. Because if left unattended for a few seconds, I am pretty sure a Silvermist would tear right through that relatively weak design. I think for the small Silvermists, it takes several ships with many Ions.., for two Silvermists.., man, like 10 ships.., they are very powerful.
A pictures worth a thousand words...
Live long and prosper!
