So I brought all these ships to play with this giant base. But how do I stop them all trying to rub themselves on it like a bunch of needy space cats?


If I understand what you mean, destroy any Sensor Arrays, Comm Relays, or Nav Bouys in the system.  The patrols will all go to investigate those and leave the main base undefended.

@Serenitis
 ;D ... But you can't - AI is explicitly set to behave 'aggressively' against stations. And rubbing shields into target's nose is how AI currently understands aggression (which is obviously wrong, especially for carriers/standoff ships...). Alex mentioned it in one of bug reports on too suicidal behavior against stations.
