Summary0001723: Fighters/bombers with no orders will keep trying to fly around when docked to another ship
DescriptionAs they keep flying around and staying mobile, they drag the ship they have docked with along with them, thereby effectively making the dock command useless for such ships. Ideally, when docked they should stay still like a big ship until given orders to the contrary.
TagsNo tags attached.

Little bump and some additional info:

This also happens with fighters/bombers that warp in docked. Play-dead works for ships arriving already docked but does not for ships docking. Well it does but not until after they make the ship move. Size and mass don't seem to matter.

An additional problem with fixing this is that initially docked ships was used as a work around in retail based missions to give caps a speed boost. Fixing it could break those missions.
