    Just guessing but it could be a smiley salute?

    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.

    How do thrusters work, it is simple.

    Stuff goes in, stuff happens, stuff comes out VERY fast.

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