|7.6 Emergency Jump|
|Your vessel's jump drive, if intact, can be an invaluable asset to removing you from a battle quickly. If you've realized that your bout is over and that you would rather come back and fight another day than go down in flames, press Shift+J to initiate an Emergency Jump. This will activate a short, automatic jump in the direction your ship is facing.
As such, it is important that you check your course before you use this technique. More than one pilot has been known to barely escape with their lives intact, only to crater into a star or planet mere seconds after E-jumping away from combat.
