If you have a saved game in hyperspace for example, going to starport,
entering the captains lounge, and then leaving the captains lounge will
drop you back into hyperspace restoring the game to its last saved spot.

Oops!! LOL. thats pretty funny. when the lounge module closes it does an
automatic save. should be easy yo fix.

Okay the solution to this was to create a new Launch button, added next to
the Exit button. There were just too many flags to try to sort out the
logic, and it wasn't working. We *do* want the game to launch the player
into wherever they were when the game was saved, just not when they're at
the starport. So, this solves the problem. New button.

Noticed a potential problem, however. This is an out for the player who
gets stranded.. All you have to do is return to the title screen, go to the
captain lounge, load a saved game, then exit onto the starport. You can
then just launch from the starport or repair your ship or refuel without
regard for being previously stranded.

I'm concerned about this, but at the same time I'm sick of this save/load
screen and ready to just delete the whole stupid thing and go back to the
old Starflight way--if you screw up you have to restart the whole game by
copying your floppy disks again!

If someone has a better idea of how to resolve this do share. I'm not
reopening it unless someone complains about this being a cheat.
