W-what!?  I come back to see that I've lost over seven thousand ships in a short period of time!?  Curse those bloody electric shuttles destroying essentially all my fleet ships except for frigates...

The second image depicts what happened after I replenished my fleet.  Furthermore, super terminal shall be started soon when I unlock the military command station III.

Ah, well I can say my super terminal idea failed in the end, costs me way too much and effort in slowly decreasing the AIP because of all the HP-heavy ships that are spawned from the bloody structure, and well, all the other core ships that spawn.  Anyways, that was just for fun in the end, I guess.   :-\

Sigh, well, that's enough of that, back to my main conquest. 

25th hour, 27 000 ships, 75 planets.

yeah, I just blow superterminals up when I capture planets like that.

I was quite disappointed that I couldn't really do much with it beyond decreasing the AIP by maybe 100-300 (didn't keep track). 

Anyhow, my progress is postponed due to other events and games that I must tend to, and that I am fatigued from enslaving the AI.

Keep in mind the superterminal is designed for games where you are only at maybe 500 AIP by the time you destroy the second AI homeworld, it's very useful when your AIP is lower.

It's a must cap structure for me if I can at all manage it, right up there with the Mk IV Space Dock.

I assumed that was the purpose for it (sigh I should have avoided it in the first place, cost me a lot of resources and upkeep for all those defensive measures), I could see why it's useful for conservative players.

well yes - but how many resources are you willing to spend to lose 1 aip? let along 100 or so!

Also, the superterminal certainly might seem like diminishing returns as aip gets higher, but once you can throw fortresses at it, or higher level stuff, it can drop a good deal of aip for you
