Its normally called a Safe Room. All new ships are being built with them and older ships retrofitted (quickly!!). That they are able to control the ship is not much of a leap as one could imagine the engine room would be a perfect Safe Room and is already connected to the bridge.

So they just need one of those expensive wireless autopilot...

$1,185.00 U.S. Dollars

Most ships I go past the crew seem to be already enclosed in their Citadels, the Bridge deserted with the 3rd mate, Mr Wong, lying in bed sometimes jabbing a finger at the porn video remote and sometimes accidently hitting the Nav remote!

I need one!!
