Is there any way to force a ship to use its warp drive to get to a location, instead of using the normal routes? There's an enemy system I'd like to scan without losing my ship, but I can't get it close enough without actually trying to go to the system. If I route my ship to a nearby system, the path always goes through the enemy system even though that means certain death.

Once you've unlocked the proper technology (Atmospheric Filtration in the standard tech tree), you can order your ships to move directly to a planet with Ctrl. Hold it down while ordering the movement, and your ships will (slowly!) make a beeline for the system in question.

Oh cool, I'd tried it with shift and given up. –  Tacroy Jun 18 '12 at 2:17
