I'm playing my first game after downloading the latest patch, and I am playing as the Korx. I am up to medium scale building, harpoon missiles, ECM II, enhanced miniaturization, advanced factories, extended life support, research centers, blah blah blah..and I still have NO defense ships available in my build queue. All the races have gone from warm to cool in anticipation of pouncing on my undefended backside. There are no defenders, no corvettes, no nothing available to be built. I also have duranthium, mass drivers, and the first 2 shield defense techs.
