I propose removing CONCORD completely.
New pilots get a very very high standing with their chosen starter corp for the first month, ticking down to a base level as the month goes on.
In the first month, while faction navy standings are very high (+20 or something), the navy will come to the rescue and assist. (same RoE apply though).
Once past the first month, navy support is directly related to the standings with the navy's corp.
The navy's should be tankable unlike CONCORD...
A solo pilot get empire faction navy support down to 0.0 and a pilot with high pirate navy standings will get support up to 0.4.
A combined fleet would have the standings averaged which would generally mean zero navy support regardless...
Sec status should still apply and trigger navy aggression.
Why do this?.. because it would be interesting and add more options for the solo player...
CONCORD are useless anyhow, they only punish, and that discourages revenge...
