Occasionally one gets a layout where there is only one connector to homeworld (see below). I have never seen a monster sitting at that first world. Is that just luck so far, or is there a rule that prevents a monster being generated at that position?

For the most part, it's theoretically prevented, for example the Ancient Ruins placement code contains the following clause
Code:
        Not WithinStarlaneJumps jumps = 2 condition = And [
            System
            Contains And [
                Planet
                OwnedBy affiliation = AnyEmpire
]
Which prevents it being too close to you at start, most specials have similar and IIRC the monsters code does the same.

However, I've never relied on that fully so tend to avoid sending my initial colony ship blind.

On the other hand I suspect if there was something nasty blocking me off completely I'd probably give up on that gameā€”so really, if it does happen, report it as an issue with the generation settings so we can try to gate whatever the problem was.

It would depend a bit on the particular one, but yeah pretty tough start. Especially now that you don't get instant repair from drydocks, so it's more difficult to shuttle attack ships.
