If the Trade Planet is not occupied by any Federation, NPC Defense Force will.
3) Trade Planet Defense
When the Trade Planet is temporarily occupied, you can organize a Defense Force and defend the planet.
(When you win from the battle, attack fleets automatically becomes Defense Force, other attack fleets arrives after, will automatically return back to your planet. Thus, sending support fleet as soon as your Federation becomes occupant is recommend.)

Only 8 Federation members can participate in Defense Force.
