In my current game, I've seen this happen a number of times, here's what happens:
1. I order fleet 1 to retrofit to current design (Fleet 1 is set to Manual, not Automatic). It moves to closes starbase, which often is the where the fleet is currently orbiting, as my fleets are normally stationed at bases.
2. Retrofitting takes place
3. Retrofitting appears to complete, and then fleet leaves starbase and plots a course to another starbase, often at the opposite side of my empire. Or, maybe 1/2 the fleet leaves on this unplanned mission, leaving the other 1/2 still refitting.
Is this something I'm doing wrong? Is it a lack of resources at the retrofitting starbase?
I can provide some basic screen shots to anyone interested.
