I was attempting to kill myself by flying into a sun, and intented to take the ship with me.
I was alone ont he vessel, not even a droid or NPC was present, yet i got the following General Event:
“Year 10 Day 90, 5:00 As your flesh begins to melt, you realise that flying the THS Genesis so close to the sun was probably a very bad idea. Finally overruling your earlier command, the remaining crewmembers have swung the ship's trajectory around to avoid direct collision with the sun. With luck, most of the crew will soon regain consciousness and survive their injuries - but it is too late for you.”
How come i got crewmates all of a sudden???
It was an intentional sicide. I didn't had second thoughts.
I suppose if the message was a general go space yourself to its owner, and was meant to be a demonstration of my soldier's loyalty and bravery to their cause, then whether or not the ship suffered any significant damage is a secondary concern. Besides until Repair comes out, which will probably take a long time, that ship will remain damaged and serve as a reminder.
