If you put your production aboard those ships, it motivates you
to protect them.
I'm toying with a system in which you get Red, Green and Blue
resource units; when you transport them to a production center,
you get, say, 10MCr for 1, 30MCr for a pair (different colors)
and 50MCr for a set of RGB.  This will encourage trade.  The MCr
have to be spent at that production center, which is no problem
unless you're trying to supply military units on another planet
(eg a colony).	More details when I get around to it (don't hold
your breath).

Religious power too.  Allahu akhbar!

Rather than have different political divisions, you might
consider having a "Glory Rating".  I've seen this in, I think,
Imperium?  If your glory drops too low, your military effort
loses support.	Set things up to encourage battles (eg you get
glory if you fight a battle at even odds and win, but you also
get glory if at worse than 1:1 and inflict damage).
