Default Re: Retreating Task Forces?

That's, to an extent, what I do.

I try to design multi-role ships. My picket ships are light attack craft. They surround a larger ship, say a cruiser, with a light offensive shell. Most only possess a missile or two, and then a formidable amount of point defense. I haven't done any real fighting in the newer version, but the escorts, supported by the heavier missile batteries of their flagships, usually have done the trick in the past for me.

Then, most of my enemies, by this point, have been reduced to single or as many as triple system nations, whereas my Hegemony is a good dozen systems with trillions of people. I've always enjoyed a severe advantage in weight of ships.
