In VB6 aurora, I always colonized Luna and Mars, and one would get my best ship construction administrator, and the other would get my best ground force training speed administrator.  When you are talking +50 or even +60 ship building, that is an enormous savings, especially as it applies to retooling and shipyard expansion as well.

Lower population worlds having a smaller service worker population.  If you have a 25 million pop world, you can employ most of them in construction or research.  If you have a billion pop world, 750 million are going to be in service jobs.

Moving your shipyards to Luna in order to take advantage of the Ship Construction speed of an Admin is a clever idea. And its a cool role-play idea. I'll have to try that!

EDIT: Dammit, you can't move Shipyards! That's disappointing. Guess its time for some Space Magic...

Yes, you can. You need a tug to tow them.

Its a shame you cant put Orbital Habitats in deep space. I've got two empty systems between Sol and a rich system I'm colonizing, and it'd be nice if I could create civilian markets in between them.
