Here, is it a case of "too bad" and the existing mechanic is in place: blow up, respawn, try again or get out.
not necessarily, here the mini-game idea could kick in and instead of abandoning your ship, you try to restore core containment, or temporarily reroute life support to structural integrity. If you succeed, you'd get a little of your hull and shields back, and better keep evasive manoeuvres and some boff heals handy.
If you don't succeed in the mini-game you still might blow up or abandon ship (and also blow it up) and then respawn i guess. Or alternately you just could get a critical wound and then try again.
Of course the "wounds" you currently get for blowing up, you'd get every time the ship is disabled.
