Words of Caution
Read This Heading!
These commands are powerful and experimental, please use your best judgement when dealing with them - for example if you have just told a ship to dock at a shipyard for refit, don't go and use any of the MCE commands, you could create potentially disastrous scenarios and deadlock your ship into doing nothing, as well as loosing the credits you just spent!
When a ship is doing a trade run, the MCE, for your own safety, Will not accept any input - Interrupting Trade scripts is not possible at this time, however trade cancel commands are planned for the future when i figure out a way to do them safely
Again, use your common sense!
Currently Implemented Commands
Instruct the ship to stop moving and hold in its current location.
Instruct the ship to resume following you (after you told it to hold position)
Move to My Position

Instructs the ship to follow you in full combat readiness mode, note that currently this command may not work due to problems with the stock escort script.
Patrol Zone ...
Instructs the ship to patrol a target zone selected from the map.
Move To Zone...
Instructs the ship to move to the zone you select, and then holds position on arrival..
Abort Outstanding Trades and return any pre-allocated credits!
