Veteran Instincts combined with Advanced Sensors gives you a really good ability to re-position. The addition of Twin Ion Engines MKII also unlocks 4 more green manoeuvres on the dial.
Wired combined with Fire Control System and Primed Thrusters puts Backdraft in an interesting place, allowing for re-rolls defensively as well as still being able to re-position whilst stressed.
