68k pay and all you need is the largest standing army in the sector? What a deal!

Are you extracting a person or stealing the whole planet?

What causes it to scale like that?

I know with trade missions the mission generator looks at the size of your cargo hold and picks a number you can carry -- do you have crew space in your fleet for 31,000 marines?

Pirates sitting on my planets keep targeting my other planets in the same system, some of them have like 70k defense ratings.

The scary part is that 70K is tame compared to the nonsense numbers you can get if you invest fully into creating a completely impenetrable fortress of doom.

And it'll still pay less than it costs to hire the entire Hegemony to raid your own colony good gods...

Oh, okay. That's weird but the number of marines itself is ultimately sensible, then, even if the lack of scaling payout (and being sent to raid yourself) is pretty silly.

This scenario is killing me.
"Hey man, i know me and my buddies have been harassing your trade convoys and attacking random civilians for fun, but look at what i got here, no less than 50 bucks! It's all yours if you punch yourself in the face, set fire to your own people and open the prison door so that me and my best bro can get back to raiding, pretty please?

The best part is, even if you got those troops together, you can't even raid your own colony. You don't even get the option to.

I want to see the fleet that carries 120,000 marines.  I want to see it actually formed, crewed, flown to pick them all up, then flown to the raid.  I will be singularly impressed.

Is 120 000 marines even possible with only 30 ships? Gotta pump up those numbers,those are rookie numbers :)

Why do people thing they are limited to 30 ships.

Heck, why do people think they are limited to the crew that their fleet says they can hold?

Just bleed supplies.

Can you even lose your last ship?
