Hostile stations and subs

I want to start by saying that I love this game, and I’ve had a ton of fun playing with friends. The devs have really knocked it out of the park!

I saw on the roadmap that one of the long-term goals was to have factions in the campaign. This made me think of the possibility of some of these factions becoming hostile, and perhaps having armed stations and subs protecting them that would attack Players with low enough reputation on sight. This could make PVE sub-on-sub or sub-on-station combat more frequent and open the door for missions of seizing/destroying heavily armed stations and submarines Etc etc. I think it would add some variety to the enemies that you encounter in the game, and give more opportunity to use weapons like the flamer and grenade launcher without worrying about damaging your own sub. Is anything like this planned for the game?
