Heh. This has come up with me before. I've found the SFB solution to
pretty well. Basically move each ship 'forward' (in whatever direction
happens to be travelling if you are using vector movement) an inch or
something and recheck the arcs. That's the arc which you get to fire in.

The only time this falls through is if both ships are travelling in
EXACTLY the same direction, at EXACTLY the same speed, such that no
matter how far you were to 'move' them their relative positions stay
exactly the same. THAT hasn't happened to me so far, I'm happy to say.
