A subsector duke is unlikely to be able to do more than make requests of IN ship captains or fleet admirals, unless they have an Imperial edict to back them up...

We know there is a sector admiralty, and it is they that issue fleet and ship orders, probably with some input from the sector duke and local megacorporatioons. The often forgotten aspect is that a fleet or ship could be months away from the sector HQ, and thus their standing orders must involve an awful lot of 'use your own discretion' clauses.

An IN fleet assigned to a particular subsector probably has to act most of the time on requests from the sub sector duke - providing they don't clash with sector fleet orders.

E.g the duke of regina can not order the IN 215th fleet to attack the Zhodani and begin a frontier war, but he can probably request that the fleet admiral sends some ships to efate to aid in putting down the unrest brewing there.
