-Patrols behind the lines. The “lines” adjjacent to the “battle line” must be patrolled by a minimum of one ship. Up to half may be patrolled by a squadron. Squadrons use an FCR multiple of 2 (which keeps most squadrons very small). Patrol ships may be ships in reserve that are scheduled for conversion or refit (they fight in their unrefited state), or attacking player retreat ships. They may not be overhaul ships.
-Random encounters (Orions, minor races (LLDR, Vudar, WYN, ISC, Jindos), Andros, Monsters).
-Survey missions. A survey ship may be asssigned to the survey area. At the end of the campaign turn, roll three dice. The total is the number of RPs earned from survey work.
