Based on FTL: Faster Than Light.
One of the things that always struck me about that game stemmed from the fact that your ship's evasion rate drops to zero if the pilot leaves his station (without upgrades, that is), but the same is not true of other stations. This means that in a battle whenever shit goes down on the ship, the pilot is the last guy you want to send away from his station. I often imagine him as a lazy asshole because of that, sitting up front, sipping his coffee like a goddamn jackass.
