In Topic: Unlockable characters with their own story?

You could create a visual aid perhaps. A tree diagram showing all of the possible options. 

In Topic: Does anyone have any advice for my unique situation?

If you made a really, really thorough GDD a dev team might be able to make your game I suppose. It would need to include everything they could possibly want to know though, and that just isn't possible. Plus actually convincing a team to pick up and make your games in itself is a nearly impossible task. After all they all probably have 5 or more game ideas of their own that they'd rather make.

In Topic: How Would I Go About Creating My Dream Game?

If there's one thing I've learned from game development it's never get too attached to a story, mechanic, or idea in general. For your game to reach its full potential you will have to iterate and improve and odds are the end product will barely resemble what you started with. However I assure you that it is all for the better. You mentioned that you are just beginning to get into game development and are learning programming. That's a good start. Learning the technical skills required is a step many people try to get around and it never goes well. As a matter of fact I tried picking up the technical skills and knowledge of how to design a game while simultaneously designing a game and ended up accomplishing neither. That experience taught me several valuable lessons though. For one never get ahead of yourself. Take things one step at a time. Anyways good luck with your game and your budding career in game development! I look forward to seeing you around in the forums.

In Topic: Mmorpg Idea.

In my opinion people are too quick to decide they want to make an MMO. They don't fully understand the limitations those games have to deal with. Really think about the game you want to make and take into consideration both your available resources and those limitations then decide whether the game really needs to be an MMO or maybe would be better off as a  co-op title.

In Topic: Fleet modernization/reconfiguration

Perhaps you'd have to recall the fleets to some super huge shipyard so that they can all get upgraded, but in doing so leaves your domain vulnerable to attack for a period of time.
