Question [original x-wing] exploding ship syndrome

When you destroy a star fighter or small ship it often explodes violently and goes shooting in a random direction. Often, straight toward you. Is there some option to disable this? It's extremely frustrating to get killed by an enemy you killed!

Life's a bitch, and then there's shrapnel. Do keep a sharp eye out for that, and work it into your starfighting technique...

I remember this being particularly a problem when destroying assault gunboats. The only thing you can do is keep your distance once they get hull damage.

Arrow Damage roll

Finished several battles in XvT with a cracked canopy, wrecked scanners and an alarm blaring in my ear. It's a part of the challenge.

Jink! Jink, dammit!
