Of course helm doesn't always loop far left around obstacles. No sometimes my helm prefers to plow my ship into a star at Warp 9.96
Helm: We are here!
Me: You are so fired.
I have a worse story.
Me: "Helm, how long until we reach the Kelvani Belt?"
Helm: "About 10 seconds, I just need to move around a few other ships."
Me: ~looks at position readout~ "Just go right, it'll take a fifth the time."
Helm: "Nope." ~helm turns left~
~room shakes and fills with metallic screeches for ten seconds as I collide and scrape against 2 other ships~
Me: "DAMAGE REPORT!"
Ops: "The port bow sections of decks 8 through 10 have compacted into deck seven. Hull breaches reported on decks 8, 9, 10, and 11. Main power is out on decks 6 through 13. Severe structural damage to the port wing, ventral wing cannon port destroyed. 13 dead, 20 wounded. 8 crewmen unaccounted for."
Me: ~glare at Helmsman~ "I told you to turn RIGHT!" ~draws disruptor pistol and executes helmsman~ ~takes the helm~ "The transwarp drive is functional. Prepare for transwarp back to Qo'noS. We need a layover in drydock... and a better helmsman."
Summary executions FTW.
