So I took a mission from a freighter pilot who knew she was going to be ambushed by Charon pirates from a station placed around a star that destroys ships on contact. This was in the same system as Eternity Port itself. She left the station, and promptly flew into the star. Mission failed. I wonder how unique that particular star is, but that probably should be made impossible.

That's a known glitch. I don't see why they can't simply reuse the 'avoid hostile stations' AI.

Pirate stars. Best kind of stars.


But yes, that star is a white dwarf.....which is currently a unique thing in the game. I do think it should be possible to lure things into the gravity well and kill them, because it's hilarious, but mission NPCs should probably try to avoid it.
