Interesting idea. How would you solve the problem of only one outpost per system? At 1 billion I can foresee whole constellations would be occupied by these micro outposts and all the strategic systems for PvP,PvE and Mining would soon have one occupying them.
In addition, it would remove the need for POS mining since these Outposts could be docked by Freighters allowing ore from distant mining ops to be transported back to a refining station.
I can see therefore why you have suggested destroyable rather than capturable, but given this could you not achieve your desire with improved user-friendly POS hangar and refitting arrays rather than the weak, hard to use, current POS modules?
