    It's supposed to look like (and represent) a salute.

    I hope you meant they "type" it in. Not actually say it instead of "salute". That would be even more sad than people saying "LOL"

    I seem to recall a station where after launching, the flight controller would say "Oh Seven commander".

    Yep. They do sometimes. Makes me smile too.

    There's a glossary list here .. I find useful.
    And if you're really into it .. lingo by professions here.

    o7 Cmdrs. "See you in the black"

    I actually think it is you saluting yourself - let's face it you have to be looking in a mirror to see the salute that-way-round.

    Or it's the view of you saluting him from behind you. Maybe this would have been better. <O
    I suppose it depends which service we are basing the salute on.

    One ship even has it in the design. One of my favorite ships in the game! The Imperial Clipper.
