Two related questions:

How do I make an NPC ship navigate from one point on a space map to another?

and

How do I make it warp out of the map?

First question is pretty much a "no," although you can mess around with wander settings to make the ships move about. You can't really set them to go from point A to point B though.

2nd question is possible with a workaround. I can't remember which one it is, but one of my triggers tutorials shows you how to make an npc ship warp out by replacing an object with an npc. It's part 4 or 5 of Triggers, if I recall.

Anyways, check out the wander tutorial and the triggers one.

You could also use triggers to make a non combat NYC ship navigate when you reach trigger a would make ship a disappear and ship b and trigger b ( size of map) trigger b make ship b disappear and ship c and trigger c.... Etc...etc. with each ship being slightly ahead of previous ship, a lot work but would do trick.
