That's exactly what a Cylon would say!
All is dust...
I had to glue mine to even get them to consider staying on their bases. But I see no downside to the gluing, and I'm considering glue for some of the other ships that don't "need" it. (The bases are useless without the ships and vice versa!)
I'm paranoid about transit -> the weight/momentum of the Ork ships snapping the flexible ship stands if glued in while I move the box around.
Probably not a real problem though.
