I'm trying to understand the lore behind the city's needing to flee all the time.

It's not a case of fighting a delaying retreat while trying to get to the exit. You have to go on the offensive, and basically take out the creeper.

Once you have, it only takes one blaster per source, and maybe 3 sams, to protect your entire civilization.

So why run away all the time?

I don't remember if the main game ever got this update, but one of the free Flash games had an option in which you tried to survive as long as possible. Over time the emitters would increase in how much creeper they release, and over time, you will be overwhelmed. I assume in the lore, the same applies, but the base game doesn't show this.

I think there's also a chance that more emitters could appear if they stay on a planet.

It was a rescue mission. They didn't have time to stay, there were other planets being attacked.

As for the survival mode, it was only ever in the Kongregate version.
