Perhaps that happened to you? Basically, when you see the message you need to change course, as that D7 will only move in a straight line, towards the point you were when you got the message.

Perhaps that's what happened?

Oh, I know that is EXACTLY what happened in hindsight. So much was happening as I excitedly tried to finish in time, that the event took me completely by surprise.

Btw, I gotta say that all this new darkness in sector space(even with astrometrics still enabled) is "Blinding." :p
