Please allow ships to be transported between ports without player control, like Elite Dangerous.
Moving large numbers of ships from port to port is not fun gameplay.

Also, with the current UI, it is impossible to see which ports ships are docked at, making it impossible to manage the fleet if there are too many ports to use.

There are a lot of things missing in this game and it's not there. The game is at the testing stage and at the freezing stage. Someday it will appear in the game, as well as many other things. Let's believe and be greedy

I'm guessing you are asking for it to fly without you aboard, correct? The only problem with this is who will host the ship?

If it is just a question of having an auto-pilot, well there are players who have built this in the game already. I used to have a problem of getting bored flying to the gate, going AFK, coming back having overshot, fly back, repeat. Now I have a ship with an autopilot that takes me to the gate and stops when it gets there by itself. But I still have to be aboard to host the ship.

Also, with the current UI, it is impossible to see which ports ships are docked
This is indeed a pain in the ass and I would also love a bit more info, at least on the ships tab if not on the spawn screen.

In Elite Dangerous, you can pay to have a ship "teleport" from port to port.
The greater the distance, the higher the fee and the longer it takes.

It is not an actual physical flight.

I would like to see this feature in Starbase as well.

In Elite Dangerous the ship simply teleports. But for Starbase this does not work. It will be PVP abus and resource abus (you'll be able to create a "ship" that you simply take apart into resources with the tool after teleportation).

This should NOT be allowed to appear in Starbase.
