it is possible to get the civies to built Starbese for defensive purposes? i notice that civs only built starbases to mine resources. I have never seen one civ built a starbase for defensive purposes. When a enemy invades my system i usually pound with my starbase until the enemy fleet is on it is last HP then it is generally a matter of mop by the bomber/fighters. Majority of the time enemy fleet never even got within 3 square of my colony. When attacking i just need enough Destroyers to screen my fleet.
