Fleet doesn't appear in Battle Screen

Did I miss something? when I deploy my fleet and go into battle, the enemy fleet shows up and starts flying around, my fleet shows up as shadows in the mini map, but on the main screen my ships just don’t show up.

I then retreat from battle and get frustrated.

are you definitely looking at the right place on the map? You may need to scroll around (arrow keys or WSAD).
Is this a fresh clean install of the game without mods?

brand new install off of steam with no mods. When I just went to run it today to see if I could get a screenshot, My ships were there. I swear I didn’t do anything different.
