How is this for a navigational interlock ...

/* INL draft states for p_inl_draft */
#define INL_DRAFT_OFF            0 /* not involved */
#define INL_DRAFT_MOVING_TO_POOL 1 /* in transit to pool */
#define INL_DRAFT_POOLED         2 /* in pool of players to be chosen */
#define INL_DRAFT_MOVING_TO_TEAM 3 /* has been chosen, in transit to team */
#define INL_DRAFT_TEAMED         4 /* has been chosen by a captain */

During a draft, no speed may be set.

During a move, no direction may be set.  This helps prevent interference
with the navigation to the pool or team galactic area.

Therefore while pooled or in a team, the ships may fiddle with their
shields and rotate to indicate they are present.

I envisage the ships all on the tactical and all safe from damage.
