Is this a bug?

I've been babysitting a new colony that is about 3 sectors away. There are some silvermist in the system so I have around 3-5 fleets in rotating patrol when they have to refuel.

Anyways the silvermist just strolls right past all my fleet and destroys the new port that is almost done while my fleet just ignores it?

BTW my setting is at Patrol --> Engage system targets.

Here is a pic of what happened.

The fleet setting aren't working that well. It not only happens to Silvermist but also to pirates that show up to raid - the defending ships just don't react or react very slowly. Not sure how you can "fix this". Even putting a fleet of 12 ships around the planet results in only one or two reacting.

Sometimes they work very well, other times not. I've seen it be more likely that 2-3 ships will react and the rest of the fleet doesn't.

It probably is a good idea to leave a few ships outside of fleets to act on their own, and not have every ship in a fleet.

I have a tendency to put DD and bigger into fleets and let FF and FFL roam freely.
