In my game, I am looking at the Iconian Refuge as a civilization that is ranked 15th (out of 15) in military power, 10th in population, 9th in tech, 8th approval and so on. Only in Tourism, Social, and Treasury (1247 bc) is he in first. He has 15 ships, 6 starbases, and 11 colonies. Compare that to my 35 ships, 19 starbases, 28 colonies and the fact that I had 65 techs (?) that he needs and he has 4 that I need. His score is 630, while second place is 437 and I am in third with 359. In general everyone is around 290-350 outside of the top two and bottom two. So where is the calculation determined on power? His 15 ships aren't even all that good (as seen as him in last place in military power).
