Something odd happens if a Friendly Destroyer (with a top speed set to 1.0 or grater) when Comms orders it to defend a base, the ship will move to it, bump against it, then coast away at about 1/2 speed off into the distance forever.
To verify, I created a new mission, with a base station in the middle, and a friendly destoryer that had the AI command listen to comms and Set property TopSpeed to 1.0 I placed no enemies.
Started the mission, and Comms sent the order of "Defend Base". The ship accepted the order, and moved tword the base. Eventually, it bumped into it, a few times, then passed it, and kept moving in the same vector... away from the station.
Comms asked for a status report and all I get back is that it is heading tword the Base (even when it is 10k away and moveing further.
I am sure that this worked better before before the update.
