but i made a scout the command ship of a fleet. added five frigates to the fleet. ordered them to jump at the same time. but the scout is always half a jump ahead of the rest of the fleet.
i also made a colony frigate the command of another fleet. also add five frigates to that fleet. in this case the frigates were always 1/2 a jump ahead of the colony frigate.
i did this to give both ships escorts. but excorts don't do a lot of good when their not with the ship they are escorting.
