      I had the idea that the game really makes landing on planets a slow affair (which it should, crashing is usually bad), but there are situations where you really don’t want to be safe but would rather be on the ground in a hurry.

      I propose a ‘crashland’ command, used instead of the simple ‘land’ command that would forcibly crashland your ship on the indicated landing pad / inside the indicated hangar bay. The crashland would be like landing when not piloting the ship, and would include hull damage, a damaged drive and injuries to all passengers inside the ship, but the landing would be much faster than a normal landing would be.

      There could even be a piloting skill that would reduce this damage!

      Edit: I also realised that this could be really useful in situations where a ship is in orbit but cannot land because it has no fuel. The pilot could crashland instead.

      Crashland would be a good addition to the game especially for those pesky stuck in orbit without fuel situations.

      I also like it when considering your being chased or know an enemy fleet is imminent and your trying to touch down unnoticed before they enter system.
