Enemy (NPC) ships getting Stuck in Objects
I've noticed that if an enemy (computer-controlled) ship strays too close to an object, such as an asteroid, satellite, etc, the ship has a tendency to get stuck there. When the ship is stuck in an object, players can target the ship, but cannot fire at the ship (unless they move into a very specific, very narrow arc). However, the enemy ship can still fire at player ships.
I've noticed this in several different missions, the most recent is "Hide and Seek" (Federation mission).
