This is not at all the bug I reported. I was flying (again I can email system names, details, ships names if required etc) three Lambda shuttles from a VSD to a planet, and the navcomp set a course, which if I remember correctly passed near a sun. Suddenly when I checked, I was at the planet, but the second shuttle had disappeared. I had no single event whatsoever. I contacted the one that had the priviledge with faction owned ships and he saw this:
23 Year 7 Day 129, 3:09 The Lambda Shuttle XXX has been destroyed by the gravitational pull of XXX, melting anything inside.
I just recently (1-2 days ago) Plotted a course that took me right next to a sun with no problems. Maybe its just NPC ships? Or maybe it was one of those mysterious one of a kind problems that you just happened to be the unlucky person to receive.
