I, personally, would not want to be on-line just for one game for years. As far as the incoming raid goes, unless you are the commander at that base, before you could issue orders, have them encrypted, sent, then unencrypted, it would be too late for action other than receiving the requested damage report.
Seek peace but keep your gun handy.
I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are missing!
