The battle

The engaged fleets were restricted to low velocities and their maneuvers often influenced more by the environment of the quasi-nebula, than tacticality.

Torpedoes were affected and Shields were unreliable but nor did lasguns become useful since the bursts were diffused/delected. The navigators could not calculate the extremely complex variables of the situation more than 100-2 seconds before the event and had to be fed with new data very frequently; the navigators who relied on perception were favored.
