While faster, Hyperspace is essentially a giant water-slide. Star Wars ships cannot maneuver while using hyperdrive. To make course corrections, they must exit hyperspace, recalculate trajectory, and then re-engage hyperdrive. They, therefore, are unable to engage in combat maneuvers at Faster than Light velocities. Star Trek proponents often point out Commander William Riker’s comment that lasers would not even penetrate a Federation ship’s navigational shields. However, Star Wars Turbolasers are not strictly “lasers.” They are a high energy gas, energized, and released as a coherent energy plasma bolt via a magnetic bottle effect.
