If you pit ECM on a weapon platform, would it work to defend it? Or would whatever effects govern a planet cancel it out or make it not function?

I think ECM does work on weapon platforms; however planets have a 200% or so defense penalty so it doesn't matter.

How bad would your weapons have to be in order to miss a planet?

Well, there is a hardcoded accuracy range of 1%-99% for weapons, so no matter how bad your accuracy is you will still hit 1% of the time, but no matter how good you will still miss 1% of the time...

I guess that makes sense. A weapon with 0% accuracy would no longer be a weapon. :>)
