If there was a counter, people would use it to prevent you from fleeing.
If people prevented you from fleeing, then you would ask for another option to escape battle.
Yes, I know this isn't a PvP post, but PvE encounters would start to use counters to full impulse, or would become very easy.
There are already good options for withdrawing from combat. They are not guarantees to escape, but they do work some times, if applied properly.
As for myself, when I start a fight, I am generally in it until myself or the enemy blows up.
Keep your power to engines high, and use a hyper-impulse engine.
theres already a counter in play (although it may have to be adjusted) tractor beam
