The amount and size of Fleets are limited by the amount of Support that they receive at the system they are based in. Each colonized system has a small number of Support points, while Naval Station have larger numbers that increase with each level of station and with additional warehouse modules. Typically Support points are listed as Cruiser Equivalents (though Defense Fleets are measured in Command Points), as shown in the table below:
| No Station
A colonized System without a Naval Station can support 6 CEs worth of ships per planet. A colony must reach certain level of development before it can support any ships.
