Ship Orders and Behaviours can be further refined and curtailed by implementing a wide variety of Blacklists which can restrict ship movements (i.e what sectors it is and is not allowed to cross or enter)as well as ship activities and finally ship and station trade restrictions. Blacklists can be accessed from the global orders menu and it is possible to create a blacklist for every ship or simply apply one blacklist to all ships.
Applications of blacklists include but are not limited to being able to alter NPC economies by altering their flow or resources or being able to keep your ships in the safer areas of the galaxy by banning them from xenon space.

Note: Instructing a ship to enter a blacklisted sector will result in the ship complying with the players instruction regardless of the blacklist(s)
Creating a sector activities blacklist
This blacklist type is quite useful for when you want ships to be able to pass into certain areas but not linger e.g. a ship may be blacklisted from trading in HOP sectors but the ships can still pass through via highways without having to take the long route around.
