what you say is all true, however the whole reason for naval bases is to build/repair naval ships. Some tear down and rebuilds can take 1 or 2 years with present day naval vessel. I can imagine one or two destroyers, perhaps a cruiser, depending on yard availability, that would be forced to stay behind because they were in that place in their repair cycle where they were too far gone to reassemble quickly.

Cut off, behind vargr lines. A desperate and overwhelming fight or flight to rejoin the fleet, (or stay behind to help with defenses, or say to heck with the whole mess and go pirating )

Just an idea.

I dug out my old Lemish notes, and found the map of the planet,



The blow up of the central portion of the planet. With only a million people it's not all that spread out.



The large enclosed area to the west is the Ducal Estates on Lemish. It also contains the towns of Springfield and Kudra.

The smaller area in the east is the Baronial Estates on Lemish. It contains the small village of Baronton, and the suburbs of Franklin. Kudra is the subsector capital, Franklin is the planetary/system capital. The Lemish Imperial Starbase sits between Franklin and Kudra.

With the above map and a bit of research/tinkering, could do an "Invasion: Lemish" game. Not that it would last that long.

I used Campaign Cartographer 3 with the Cosmographer and Fractal Terrain addon. The map layout is a standard part of the package. It is made by Profantasy Software Ltd. I can recommend it, although it has been a few years since I have used it.

It is a structured drawing program, quite versatile and designed specifically for making maps, any kind of maps, from planets and star systems, down to dungeons, houses and starship deckplans.

Again, I highly recommend the software.
