Er.. what's the use of blockading research stations?
The AI seems to do it sometimes.

You can stop freighters from refueling the station or sending materials for upgrades, but I don't believe it has any effect on reducing it's research points.

No, actually, blockades only stop TRADE... with other empires.
Own freighters can dock/undock just fine.

So this is a pretty big AI flaw, keeping ships busy uselessly blockading.

If the research station had a commerce centre then I could understand it, but they normally don't. Maybe blockades stop other empires/independent ships refuelling at the research station. Even then it wouldn't be worth it.

You should log this as a defect in the tech support area.

Sounds like a bug to me. I doubt it was intended.
