***possible spoiler warning***
when I am out of shields and nanos and still have 5 bandits on my tail, sometimes I hide inside a jump gate. Somehow they can't shoot me if I'm in the right spot. But -- as they fly around outside they sometimes come into my line of sight. If I can see them I should be able to shoot them. I just haven't managed to torque my fighter around to the right angle to let fly a couple rounds. Has anybody else fired on bandits from inside a jump gate? (I know, I know, it's cowardly...) And incidentally I waited an hour for the cops to show up but they couldn't get through the gate because I was blocking it myself!
