They have an infinite number. The developers made a few points in the game where you are unable to suceed by force.

In a way, I really admire this kind of persistence. I would have given up after the first ten ships, more so with the incredible number of ships visible in the "red alert" screen.

On a more serious note, there are some areas where there appear to be a lot of ships, but you _can_ fight your way though. When in doubt, I have a
rule of thumb....Kill 12. If they keep coming, run.

There are 319 VUX vessels around the planet; after that, an infinite number of Ur-Quan Dreadnaughts arrive to ZEX's aid.

disclaimer: I am full of crap.

Two more examples of lots-of-ships-but-finite are the Umgah and Mycon battles.

Also... there are actually only 10 ships, but they produce them faster than you destroy them.
Right, that's it.

Right! So the faster you kill them, the quicker you can start bombarding ZEX's base! =)

Not to be too nit-picky, but the druuge battle also sends a non-infinite amount of ships.

What Druuge battle? for the utwig bomb? That was finite, and visibly so.
