It was a C-9 with no escorts, and it was low on fuel so it couldn't
accelerate to warp all the time. Limited drones too.
Hmm, in FT terms you'd probably limit the max velocity of the SDN and
allow it to jump away for a minimum number of turns. You'd be looking
frigates and destroyers chasing it, with a bigger force showing up if
manage to dog it long enough. Somehow you need to force the shadowing
to need to attack the sdn, or at least stay near it, while at the same
forcing the sdn to consider whether to drive them off or run.
