    In sector/planet view:  QWER are soft keys to whatever shows up bottom center of the screen.  1-7 select your fleets.

    In battle:  S stops your ship's current move order.  Click and drag to select multiple ships in an area.  Click then right-click to select additional ships.

    Those are what I know of that aren't in the settings menu.

    in battle
    "A" select all own ships.
    "Ctrl + number key" Group
    "Shift + click to enemy ship" change main target

    don't forget

    "Ctrl+Alt+Del" you will get the fuc# up lol

    Pinning this thread.  Just realized the importance of (space + right LEFT click) last night.  Incredibly useful. 

    Edit:  My bad.  Use this method to select a particular fleet that's stacked on top of other fleets

    Try it while clicking on enemy ships that are stacked on top of each other...

    Edit:  I stand corrected.  My apologies for any unnecessary clicks.  Thank you, Sonidojoo.

    his point is it is nowhere mentioned in game, which should. 90% doesnt know about lot of the hotkeys.
    i heard somepeople calling me out a bot once for selecting and returning ships so fast from sector into my base...

    while all i do is select fleet (keys 1 til 7) and then repeatetly press ''e'' to return my fleets back home.

    should be noted in game asap. improves gameplay.

    This needs to be a part of the official guide. Scattering everything all,over the place without a system of retrieval is unfair

    Um.. Shift plus click?
    To focus fire no need to press shift
    Just right click the ship

    Is there a key to centre to the bridge in the base view or go immediately from the fleet manager screen to base view, without having to mash the Escape key?

    Center bridge is the return to base view button.

    No way to jump from fleet manager to base view unless you opened fleet manager from base view.

    Wish S worked for the selected fleet in other views. Maybe R could be return to base.
