Slingshot

A maneuver in which a ship that is being pursued first speeds away from the pursuer, then reverses direction onto a collision course. The purpose of the maneuver is closing the distance between the two ships rapidly, getting closer to the pursuer than what it would otherwise allow, for example in order to force the faster ship into Scram range.
