“- Arrests cannot be performed on ships that are travelling in hyperspace, this includes government ships.
(Previously government ships were exempt from this rule).”
The rule itself is fairly self-explanatory, I'm just a little confused as to why our stun cuffs magically stop working in hyperspace.
I'm also curious if hyperspace will similarly stop people with Electronic Lock Breakers from releasing prisoners and opening doors (otherwise ship pilots have to make the call between dropping out of hyperspace to arrest the escapees or staying in hyper to ensure no harm comes to the ship. And yes, I'm fully aware that the chances of randomly hitting a system are slim to none). It seems to me if it stops you from doing something, it should also stop you from undoing it.
From my perspective a maintains a small amount of balance as currently the only way a potential prisoner can resist arrest is to try and hit the hyper button before the arrestor gets to them. Perhaps when (if) we get combat this will all become a moot point anyhow.
