Some of my fleets, when set to defend system, do not follow orders and run off.

Attached is a screen shot.

I've also put a saved game file on the server: 1.7.0.14 Fleets not defending.zip

You should jump in on this thread. Gelatinous Cube seems to have a good understanding of how fleet posturing works.

Yes, I understand those points.

If you look at my screenshot, they have a home base of Dagru 4 and are set to Defend Dagru 4 and system. Thus, they should only stay in the Dagru 4 system and defend (located at the top of the screenshot). However, they continue to automatically move to a far off location for no apparent reason, leaving the system undefended.

I understand your confusion - it doesn't make much sense to me either. I thought GC might be able to explain the behaviour if it's WAD.

If it isn't WAD, then it's a bug.

By any chance, do you have an attack target set up for your defense fleets?

By that I mean, if you decide to switch your defense fleet to an attack fleet, do you already have an attack target set up for it or is the attack target default/cleared when you assign them the defense role?
