This happened several times. When I destroy the cloudskipper base from beyond LRS range (with a howitzer for example). The docked defenders remain docked to the destroyed station. You can come in to point blank range and destroy the guards one by one without them ever returning fire or moving at all. playing with latest 1.7 beta.
might be a vanilla issue, but have not seen it there yet.

 I’ve seen this happen with vanilla stations, though. This one might be above Xeph’s paygrade.

Is there already a ticket for it? couldn't find it, tried to search but it's a bit awkward to find anything on the ministry.

See this ticket, which I've just fixed.
