[X2] Is there a way to get your ships to avoid enemies?

My transporters are continuously getting wasted by Khaak swarms and I don't have the cash yet for sector patrols. Is there no way to command them to stay a certain distance from all enemies so they won't die so easily?

The Bonus Pack has CLS and Mk3 Trader scripts that allow experienced pilots to avoid too many encounters with enemies - but you say that these might be beyond your means at the moment.

In the meantime, having faster traders equipped with expendible fighter drones to buy time for escape may be the best solution. I wouldn't bother at all with arming traders with guns (except mining ships) or providing fighter escorts.

Thanks for the advice, I'll look into those scripts. In the meantime I sold off a lot of my TS fleet and decided to do a lot transports manually until I can get some factories in safer sectors (I'm in Ore Belt at the moment).
