Well mine just happened right now, as I was flying to the Dumbfire Missile Production Complex, to sell Silicon Wafers, like 4 Kha'ak Scouts (the big ones), and 12 or so Fighters warped on top of me. Needless to say I was their first target because I happened to be in the middle of all of them in my Mercury.

P.S: Make the number of them all around 50 or so and you'll see my problem.

A phoenix snuck up on me and rammed into my overtuned(~200 m/s)hyperion. =X

Telling my Boreas to follow me and I was in my Skiron and jumped into a sector and didn't get out of the way fast enough....... (got a message and I was taking care of it instead of GTHOOTW!)

Sheesh! Dumb@$$!

Attempting an escort convoy mission in my Sabre, following one of the freighters on auto-pilot. Detected enemies, cancelled auto-pilot, full throttle, didn't turn fast enough. Smashed into the back of a superfreighter.

Did a split abandon ship mission, got a 50% tiger, parked it in a boron military outpost, endured the police bit, pulled it out of parking lot and begin repairing. Got to 95% when a boron military thresher rammed into me(the space suit), then I realized...I did not save

Someone forgot to tell it there were two titans and a Colossus behind him.

I bought my first ever cerberus and was sooooo excited to to test it out. I made it do a stationary turn and rammed the tail right into my heavy centaur. Sadly I forgot to put shields on it first.

Well I spotted a Split Cobra attacking one of my stations so I thought right I'll have that ship and went back to base jumped into one of my other Cobras and set off to capture it.

What I hadn't realized was I had forgotten to equip her with any shields Embarassed
1 hammer took me out Crying or Very sad

This just happened to me today actually. You know how on the sector gates the autopilot can just sort of clip right through the ring and the tube looking things protruding from it that emit the runway beacon lights? Well I was exploring the new sectors in the Extended Horizon script when I stumble upon Unknown Enemy secotr alpha. I thought ok well I just want to pop in and see what it looks like and what all is in there. I'm in a fast #deca fade just because the expanses in those new sectors are vast indeed, and the fade was the only m5 I had.

So I pop in to see the sights, wow what a scary sector, never seen any other like it, Kha'ak stations and and ships galore, plus just an eerie purple hive looking dome environment. I let the fade amble it at 15 ms to stay close to the gate when all of a sudden some interceptors just appear right above me, some missiles are fired and I have to GTFO, so I turn and hit the gas to 480 ms, and just barely miscalculate the acceleration and smack into right where the little tube extension and the ring on the sector gate connect. For the first time ever, the game recognized this as asolid object, dead. I had flown through about 16 sectors to get there, claimed about 6 ships and spent two RL hours. Damn.

When I jumped my carrier fleet into Khaak core sector from the "Extended Horizons" mod and realized the lag created by my 500+ fighters totally destroyed the game. Sadly I was stupid then and only used one save slot, which was moments after launching the fighters.... My fleet died and I lost that game. Razz

Flying in a Solano. Tearing holes into a couple of M6 at the same time.

...Then all of a sudden one of them releases a swarm of wasp missiles. Now my shields were a bit low. Not badly so i though i could handle this but then came the wasps. Boom.

Perfect moment of Hubris.
