There is no limit. You are probably thinking of the limit of 4 ships to attack a colony (not including reinforcements). However with the new expansion there is the Alien that can launch an entire planet as it's attack and you could do that with as many ships as you want on that planet.

Simbiate plus Amoeba you could get 40 ships on one planet, from one player.

In theory, one planet could hold every ship in the game, though it's very unlikely to happen. What is more likely to happen is that all but 1 ship of one player is in the warp, and then someone plays Mobieus Tubes and so the other 19 ships have to go to that one planet (I've seen this happen more than once).

The only limitation is the actual physical limitation of the number of pieces that come with the game. With the expansion that is 6 player colors and a total of 120 ships. so 120 Ships is the maximum one could have with one copy of Cosmic Encounter and Cosmic Incursion.

In a double-power, six-player game, it is theoretically possible for a single player using Amoeba + Fungus + The Prometheus to launch 121 physical ships in the hyperspace gate which would add 124 to his side's total and earn 21 cards in compensation. (Anybody who actually pulls this off is flat-out insane, of course.)
