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).
I too have had this happen, most notably in the Patrol Kassae missions. And it seems that asteroids break Line of Sight for players, but not NPCs. So when they get stuck, they can continue to shoot at me, but I can't return fire.
