I like this!

Another option is just to make it an immediate engine critical that you
write in the orders phase. No turns are given, you just immediately give
the ship an engine critical. At the end of the turn, the scuttled ship
checks to see if the warp core went critical. In the meantime, the ship
is considered empty.

This is a neat idea, as it gives (with boarding rules) a reason to send
a crew over to try and end the scuttling. 

I know that in the Second World War scuttling was often done by ships of
the same fleet deliberately sinking the vessel after it was emptied. I
can see players being allowed to fire on their own ships. I would allow,
in this instance, shields to be considered "off" and so any attacks on
the ship ignore shields.
