Not FT as such, but this is one of the areas that we address in Power 
Projection: Fleet. Each year (in a campaign) you have an overall budget 
(based on the economic value of systems you control or in the quick and 
dirty version based on the cost of your original fleet). To keep each 
ship operational, you need to spend 10% of its original value per year. 
If you can't, then you either mothball ('place in ordinary') or scrap 
the vessel ('pay off'). Mothballing means maintenance drops to ~1% of 
original build but the ship can be returned to service in ~10% of new 
build time. If you scrap a ship, you can sell it to another 
power/corporation etc, but it still has a maintenance value based on 
it's original cost.

I guess that FT will operate somewhat similarly.
