This really helps the feel of a wide and complex research focus, thanks for the addition! Only thing that I think will compare will be when you get round to including the ground forces organization update in a release.

light cruisers at 18,750 tons and cruisers at 37,500 tons.

What does your supply infrastructure look like? With those being your main line ships that's got to eat supplies at a prodigious rate.
You've talked about aggressive exploration, that doesn't leave much room for logistics/repair to be both on developed worlds and near your front lines.

I've actually established considerable logistics infrastructure. I have 1236 maintenance facilities, plus twenty-two Sanctuary class Maintenance Bases. Over a third of the maintenance facilities and all of the bases are deployed outside the Sol system. Over forty percent of the species population is on colonies. One colony is 400m+ pop, four more are 100m+ and there are sixteen more at 10m+. The game has been running for just under twenty-six years and the system count is now 410.

Do you have any protection for that Sanctuary class Base against raiders?

Also, how do you transfer/store Maintenance supplies over such huge distances?

Yes, each major colony base or maintenance base (sometimes several bases in one location) is accompanied by a local fleet. Usually a pair of 18,750-ton Dauntless light cruisers and an 18,750-ton Defiant class light carrier, plus frigate support (9375 tons) and some fast 2000-ton interceptors. Small colonies might only have a couple of frigates. The heavier ships are normally retained at Terra for offensive operations but a pair of 37,500-ton cruisers are deployed at my largest colony (in addition to the smaller ships) and also at my largest forward naval base. All the colonies also have STO units. The cruisers will probably spend more time deployed now that battleships are becoming available. I have five Emperor IV-F class battleships, with a sixth being refitted from an earlier version. The first pair of Apocalypse class battleships are under construction.

In terms of support vessels, I have eight Brigantines (three of the model below and five older ones with similar capability), four Barque class tankers and four Remoras for supplying smaller colonies.

Steve - one thing I've always wondered is how you handle Nova Cannons in WH40K campaigns? I've never found a weapn that was a satisfactory replacement, but I usually find that jump drives are a fair replacement since jump capability is needed anyways. I'm curious if there's some better idea out there though...

I have once used advanced lasers to do it. (see the Lunar Cruiser there)
Those don't do area damage, as nothing does, but surely reflect the high damage and deep penetration aspects.(warping plasma into the center of enemy ships)
I would argue that even if that technology is not available, advanced spinal mount lasers are a pretty suitable model.

I was considering using a really large plasma carronade. It doesn't match the AOE, but it would generate a much larger blast than most equivalent RP weapons. The other option is using spinal lasers as nova cannon.

That would probably work. I've thought about it before but I don't like the fact that the RP cost to get a really big, devastating carronade is still so high that you will probably never advance the technology in a typical campaign length. Spinal lasers just don't get big enough, although a quick look at the DB suggests that it would be possible to add a tech for a super-massive spinal beam with, like, 10x size or something suitably Warhammer.
