293. In the event you are in charge of a fleet of spaceships or similar technology and you are approached by a single ship, order all ships to fire on the ship immediately. If it is not instantly destroyed, order everyone to retreat as fast as possible. The ship is either a trap or piloted by some ace pilot who can miraculously take you all out.
294. Instruct any companions/family members to run away if they see you fighting someone. This will help lower the odds of your enemy throwing an attack at them, forcing you to sacrifice yourself in a dramatic fashion.
295. Make sure your companions/family members know how to dodge, and make sure that they will do so in the event they ignore Rule 294. Stress the advantages of dodging instead of just standing there gaping as an attack heads towards you.
296. In the event your companions/family members are incredibly stupid and ignore your instructions from Rule 294 and 295, don't try to shield them from the attack. Tackle them out of the way instead. You will almost always have enough time to get both of you clear of the attack, so the emotional sacrifice really isn't necessary.
