Initiating combat is as easy as pressing on your screen! As you explore Grey sectors, you will come across enemy NPCs to fight. They show up on the right side of the screen, and have icons that are Orange. To start a fight, press on the enemy ship, and you will begin to auto-attack. You will continue attacking until your opponent dies....or, if you are very die. There are many different types of weapons in the game, and they each have different firing rates.

In Grey and Blue sectors, other players are considered netural targets and cannot be fought. However, in Black sectors they are considered enemies and will be colored Red! All red players can be attacked, and will probably fight back!

When some enemies are close to dying, they attempt to flee from you by jumping to other sectors. You can manually follow them. Alternatively, you can initiate combat with a long-press (instead of a tap), and you will auto-attack them AND auto-follow them if they try to run away!

After you defeat enemy ships in combat, you get to salvage items and cargo from their ships. As long as you have enough Storage room in your ship, you will automatically loot any resources and items you find. If you don't have enough room, the resources will be dumped into the sector for anyone to pick up. In the above image, you can see all of NewGuy's resources in the bar above the ship.
While you are fighting enemies, you will take damage from their weapons. If your hull points reach zero, you will die. Luckily for you, there are ways to repair damage done to your ship:
1) Long-press your ship to heal with metals in your storage (1 Metal = 150 Hull)
2) Long-press a StarPort to heal with money ($1 Credit = 1 Hull)
3) Black Dollar (BD) Repair - This feature uses 2 BD, a rare and valuable currency. Activate it by pressing the Cog icon to the left of your ship.

You can also use metals in your storage to repair friendly players (like those in your Alliance), and your personal Fighter and Repair Drone (available from the B menu).
