That's pretty much what we said in the EFSB rules - if you have 
player-characters on a ship that is destroyed, they always make it to 
the  lifepods at the last moment, and if they are fighter pilots they 
always nurse their crippled ride back to the carrier for a 
spectacular emergency landing, or else they manage to punch-out just 
before their bird disintegrates.... just like in the movies.  :-)

No PC needs to die in a space battle unless the GM wants them to!  ;-)
