Default The Fleet is In

This week in Portland is Fleet Week and we have a flotilla of 3 frigets representing the navy. It reminded me of growing up on Hickam AFB outside of Pearl Harbor and the arrival of the Enterprise (it took 3 pollards side by side to get a whole picture) and how it and other AVC were honored with a gun salute when the came into to dock. But in addition the frigets had their military patrol boats preventing other boats from getting to close to their hauls.

My question is do you think the Imperium fleet is treated with a ceremony as it comes into a system/Highport. Would it be met with SDB's performing security? Would their be Fleet Days were civilians get to go into orbit and visit a Battleship?

I am now picturing a high pop, hightech rich world having a Fleet day. A bunch of kids/teenagers in vacsuits on air-rafts walking/flying all over the Dreadnaught, taking pictures with the crew. A Squadron of Fighters performing spacebatics and Marines/army showing off the latest Grav Tanks on the ship's haul. Can you say an interesting adventure/encounter.
