Perhaps there is a mystery here for the PCs to have a chance to investigate later?
I wondered too--maybe it's just the Starport occupation force--but even that seems a bit small. I'd think a few type T patrol-sized ships and a company or more of troops would be more likely. Or there was another alert just before that drew off most of the 'port garrison?
There are three types of Travellers with Math-3+: those who can count, and those who cannot.

Our Traveller Universes clearly are at variance. Blessed be the variance!
