I basically want to establish a few supply lines of replacement ships moving to the front, but I don't want them necessarily added to a fleet. In a typical RTS you can sometimes tell factories to direct units to a specific point/flag. I basically want to tell a spaceport to give all ships an initial movement command to XX system. Is there a way to do this?

I am experimenting wihth a work-around for now, I established a replenishment fleet near the front and have told spaceports to put newly created ships into that fleet. But since I have turned off fleet AI, I still have to move them manually, so it does seem to accomplish what I really want.

good ideea and good workaround but setting a rally point like in AOE for example (and many other examples) would be great indeed
not clear from your post if you also set the home colony for this fleet, i found this to be more forcefull in moving ships to a desired location in any circumstance not just after they are created

I would love to have rally point functionality. This is one of the few major gaps I see right now in DW. Rally points make planning invasions (or sector defenses) much more streamlined in 4x games.
