Escorts can simply outspeed them with hyper engines. Pets also help clearing minefields as does a well placed gravity well if you are in a science ship. If your are in a cruiser and mines are at your tail hit evasive or eject warp plasma.
the only complaint i have is that if one crits they all crit, this shouldnt happen.

but otherwise, yeah. if you fly blind full speed ahead into a field of ice.... expect to hit something and sink.
