Is the Antarctica supposed to travel towards the stargate after you help save it?

I finally had some time to try 1.8a1. I was zipping around in godmod mode and destroyed the Aquilas attacking the Antarctica. I redocked and got the gem. But when I undocked the Antarctica just sat there. I don't usually interact with the Antarctica but would have expected it to resume its travel toward the stargate.

Has anyone else seen this in 1.8a1? Or is this what normally happens? I don't want to ticket it unless it is a bug but because I was godmodding I may not have set some variable that is needed.

the ship is ordered to 'hold for the player to dock,

Was it moving during the battle ?
( I remember that sometimes it did not seem to move, but it is very slow. )

I really don't see any script changes between 1.5, 1.7 & 1.8 .

I do remember many games in the past where the CSC did not really seem to move.....other times it did.
if I returned to the system it was usually either leaving or gone while I wasn't looking.

I would call it a 'Feature', not a bug.

It's all good. I saw the code while checking something else. The Antarctica is ordered to hold for a random length of time, then it moves on. Cheers, sjf.
