Seems as though when selecting all of your ships in skirmish mode, and using the Shift+P command for parade formation, some of the ships prefer to dance around one another in circles instead of getting sorted.

A few notes for those interested:
  • Game mode is skirmish vs. cpu
  • Taiidan vs. Vaygr and Kushan vs. Vaygr
  • All ships are selected
  • Using the Shift+P command for military parade formation
  • Groups of ships situated away from the momma-ship (like a carrier group) will fail to parade with the momma-ship and proceed to spin around aimlessly

Current work-around for strike craft class ships is to just have them dock, then launch and they will automatically go to parade as a default. No solution for frigate class and up as of yet! Stay posted.
