That's actually a very real IW2 "problem". Luckily I've found the perfect solution. All you have to do is turn the ship around to face the other way, and engage manual LDS for a second, then disengage it. It'll send you speeding at ~900 in the direction you faced.

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences.

Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others.

Dunno, but sandwich way to decrease speed seems to involve some serious negative G force

Shouldn't matter - the fact that you can make the jump to LDS in the first place means that there is a nice inertial dampner onboard... or else you'd have {your name here}-jelly.

Shhh...
We're not supposed to notice that...

How they expected to sneak that one by us I don't know since they made such a big deal about Warp 10 being infinitely fast.
I told you that It would be done by November, well, mostly anyway...

I'm working on something new... shhhhh, it's a seceret.
