I dunno, why not just stick it in with Life Support? Having a separate
system where the failure table looks like... 

1-3 Extreme greyout/blackout. Ship drifts for d6 turns, 4-6 Crew reduced
to a red paste. Ship drifts indefinitely.

... doesn't seem like much fun. Besides, the only ships to be making
those sorts of radical turns are so small and crunchy they tend to die
quick enough anyhow.

Come to think of it, given the time scale of FT, are the turns being
made all that radical anyhow?
