One I've done more than once...

"Fire the Mark IV's!"

"Tactical says they've not been loaded yet. All we have are the Mark I's"

Well... there goes that speed/range advantage...

ROTLF  ;D

From a 1980 Sci-Fi novel..."In case of Fire..Breack the glass"...umm..."Sir..we got a problem"

If the missile has sensors you don't even need the target to still be detected. Though good luck scoring a hit when your target is invisible if your missiles are practically blind

ok, so a fighter wing can fire then get away asap, while the target remains painted by an AS from another ship. Good to know, I was not too sure.

Once a missile is fired on a target, what do I need to maintain at all time? Active sensor, Fire control, both, only the first, the second?
Just active sensors.

Civilian harvesters are accessible through the orders menu. Other types are not.

I believe you can still impound them by towing them (tractor beam).

How? I can't select civilian ships through the orders menu, so I don't know how I'd go about doing that.

Is there a way to delete commercial (i.e., shipping lines) ships? The only way I've found is to create another empire, spawn a ship near them, and blow them all up.

The same button (Start Task Force Training / End Task Force Training).

How do you abort a Fleet Training exercise?

Yep, I do exactly that. My words above was exactly about those commanders, that was born by "Replace All" (80y).
The problem is not with max age. The problem is with min age. Min ages in Aurora are not reasonably at all. It cannot be fixed by the player with "Replace All" button. More of that, starting ages are always 21 for all scientists and civilian administrators, so you can press this button 100500 times with 100500 parameter number - it will change nothing at all for them.

UPD.
In my last campaign I tried to set "realistic"* promotions off, add junior ranks down to Pilot Officer, build large fighter wings and train a mob of fighter pilots, holding them without promotions. Even for me there was too much micromanagement with a miserable battle effect.

(*) I put this word at quotes, because there is a little realism, when you have 23y.o. captains, 24y.o. generals, 26y.o. Admiral of the Fleet... and 21y.o. senior sectoral administrators, after all.
Top tip- right at the start of a new game do a "replace all" commanders. If you choose a reasonable number of generations then you get reasonably aged commanders.

Yep, fighter bonuses are just for own fighter, not for TF. I usually have 1 or 2 squadrons of interceptors with my best junior fighter officers as commanders. But those fast interceptors are big and expensive - I use them more as elite PD guards, not as fighters per se. In addition, good fighter officers tends to get their promotions quickly, so there is a little RP possibility* to set them at all fighters, while weak junior commanders just are not strong enough to bother.

(*) default ranking systems give no such possibility at all, since there are no junior officers there

I hope C# Aurora will have more sane bonus mechanics.
