What happens, exactly? Are you 100% sure you weren't trying to transfer command to an allied ship?

Looking at the code, I don't see anywhere where it cares about the status of your current ship. You can even transfer command even when your ship isn't currently deployed. Hmm.

hmm, OK, I will try my best to make that description clear.

Thank you for clarifying. Hmm - unfortunately, I can't seem to reproduce this.

Looking at the code to see if anything jumps out, there doesn't seem to be any different treatment for the target ship being disabled - once you start the transfer, it'll keep going. There also isn't any logic to prevent you from transferring to another ship based on the state of your current ship, and you can even change transfer destinations mid-flight. So, this is confusing.

Did the UI fade in? Or did it remain in a non-faded-in state? Also: was the target ship just disabled, or was it actually destroyed (i.e. with the hulk being gone)?

IIRC the the UI remain in a non-faded-in state. And the target ship just disabled (I can see the hulk) at the time I am landing at but got destroyed very soon after that (in few seconds, that's tons of missiles still in flight to make a over kill.).

Thanks - still can't get it to happen, unfortunately; am able to transfer out of a "destroyed" ship normally.
