I'm assuming you're playing on the Advanced level of play, of course. As for finding a world with a bunch of generators, I'm guessing you caught the world with its pants down, upgrading a bunch of things by first scrapping some old stuff.
Actually it was Fed partners planet. About 8-10 generators, which is a bit overkill.
Let me know how you find the latest ai. Is it better during the exploration phase?
I'd say so. At least I see a lot of scouts.
Does it keep up in worlds and starships with you?
Worlds yes. Starships seem to be problem. Even if AI has lots of money (around 10.000) it has a fleet of one ship.
How about with technologies and ages?
Depends, but mainly yes.
Are you using fleets alot? Is this how you paired it down to one ship?
No, I use fleets only when attacking planets or strong ships. My main choice of weapons are Stand-Off Weapons. Fly in, shoot SOW's, run away.
Does it do a good job of keeping it's ships and worlds updated with it's latest technologies?
Do you expect the ai to constantly attack your worlds when it has the upper hand?
Yes. Thats what I would do. Last game AI could have exterminated me, but then it stopped attacking. When somebody is down, AI should go for the kill.
Some things I think AI should do:
Spies should try to steal my wisdom artifacts whenever they can, and keep me in Stone Age. Second most important target should be technology and money.
AI should not be so keen to offer me star systems and/or 500 dollars. You should add 100 and 250 dollars donations. These donations have too many times saved my *** .
