Numerous research satellites that Imperial Cartography center uses to look for new 'jump points'

Cry-astro service platforms that will allow players to re-arm refuel and repair

IFCS Changes, (intelligent flight control system)

4 modes:

Precision Maneuvering
For controlled movement, precision mode lowers you max velocity to allow for max control, Primarily used to take-off and landing, ideal for precarious navigation such as mining, salvage, or repair.

SCM (space combat maneuvering) Arena Commander mode
aka standard flight, scm is tuned for optimal operational control. Flight system dynamically determines max speed based on installed thrusters and factors such as ship's mass, damage and other temporary thrust-impacting events.

Super Cruise
An intermediate step between SCM and Quantum, travel. Cruise speed allows the ship to sly at much higher speeds but limits maneuvering to controlled tunes only. This mode is perfect for crossing wide open space where there's little chance of needing to turn quickly.

Quantum Travel
The max speed you ship can travel. Quantum travel is capable of reaching speeds up to .2c. Due to the dangers of turning at such speeds, the ship's flight control will remove any maneuverability options, so Quantum Travel is only possible in straight lines. The ship must achieve a minimum velocity before the Quantum Drive can spool up.
