Gifting Ships in non-alliance games

Since we can’t help beef up friendly stars with our own ships (non-alliance games)… it would be nice to be able to ‘gift’ ships to a friend who needs them.

I thought that was one of the main point of the formal alliance games - so that you can do that.

I’m glad it can’t be done outside of formal alliance games because of the unfortunately high number people who quit as soon as someone starts attacking them. Bitter players would just gift all their ships to one of the other players to spite their attacker and it would severely spoil the balance of games.

You can’t gift ships in either game, but in alliance you can travel through and help bolster friends. There’s very little ‘friendly’ activity in the non alliance games, I get that’s ‘the point’ but some middle ground would be nice.
