Inside this system there are multiple planets including a planet owned by TheGuardians. while in normal space you can direct your ship using the W A S D keys. The W key to throttle up, S key to throttle down, A key to turn your ship counter clock wise and D to turn it clock wise. These keys can be rebound in the options menu.
You can also select a planet by clicking on it or in the auto navigation bar on the top of the screen.
In order to exit normal space and enter hyperspace you will need to move away from the star in the system and increase your warp success chance.
Be careful when using the auto navigation feature. It will attempt to warp as soon as you select a planet or star system. If you are to close to the systems star it is possible to destroy your ship.
