Maybe a time out on player - player commands?
Ah yes, the favorite tactic of newbies. Spam 'I need a ship!' to the com as rapidly as possible. Because clearly the com can't tell by your player icon that you're a pilot, and his first priority is to immediately cancel production, teching, upgrading, unit management and combat to make a ship for you so that you can be back in battle 5 seconds earlier than you would otherwise be -- because you would obviously not lose it in 15 seconds after getting it, to a suicide attack on the enemy base.
