There are 2 ways to teleport the player to the nearest unlocked respawn point. One is via the teleport trick and the other is via killing him/her.

The only object which worked well with the teleport trick is the turbolift. Everything else is a hit and miss. You may be teleported, pushed aside, or trapped inside the object. Needless to say, that trapping the players will not help your ratings. Also the tick is one shot show and teleports the player only. The BOFFs stay behind.
I think the turbolift works well because it is very confined and inside out object and it confuses the hell out of the engine.

The other is to kill off the player. It is one shot again, but at least it brings the BOFFs along. You have to be veeery carefull with it. If you kill the player too early, you can mess up the mission royally. So you have to make sure there is either no fight at all, or some very light fight prior the kill event. You also have to explain somehow where the bunch of angry captain mobs, spawned on the top of your head came from. And then how come you are not dead, but at the other section of the ship.
