Order: Follow Relative To
Orders a ship to follow its target at a relative position, specified either in XYZ form or p form. e.g., Follow the lead destroyer 200 metres behind and 500 metres to starboard. Ship will attempt to maintain distance and orientation within a certain tolerance.  Facing of target is not taken into account (probably), only CG position. Allows the creation of formations of ships and helps a commander exploit weak points/ downed shield facings.

Helps avoid a situation I saw recently where ships clustered right at the edge of the enemy's shield, firing missiles in and taking shrapnel damage from their own shots. Allows a ship to actually exploit superior range rather than simply rushing in and throwing away its advantage.
Helmsman should know better to not fly into splash damage range when in combat.
That's all.
