Contestable Territories in Starfleet Commander Conquest
In Starfleet Commander Conquest each Solar System contains three contestable territories that will float between planet spots within that system. Controlling these territories with one or more of your fleets results in advantageous bonuses. These bonuses include increasing your mine production, decreasing buildings times, and/or decreasing research times. But beware, you'll be fighting both other players and NPCs to maintain control!

There are a couple of things to know about territories that are quite different/strange from other non-territory SFC universes. Here are some listed, in no particular order.
Territory generation and lifetime
Territories spawn a couple minutes after the hour, and they have a predetermined timespan just like NPCs. They will however last a lot longer, some a bit more than a week. The lifespan is indicated when you perform an espionage mission on the territory. Here is an example:
