Only a certain political card allow you to trade technologies and that may only ever happen once. Other than that it's only Trade Goods and Non-binding promises.

The only thing I can think of is the High Alert token from the Warfare II Strategy Card. Other than that, the Flagships are usually pretty powerful anyway so to allow them more movement would make them a bit OP imho.

I think there is a list in one of the rule books or the Errata/FAQ. If not I would say that the defender chooses the order.

The fighters would remain in the battle until it ends and then be destroyed.

Only if your race sheet says that you may (Such as the Ghosts of Creuss being able to use wormholes even if they've been sealed by a law). The only way to get rid of a law in play, off the top of my head, is to play the political card that lets you revote on a law and hope the turnout is different.

1. There are also Promissory notes in SotT that contain binding arrangements, I.E. that you must retreat from a battle if the attacker invokes a note that you gave him earlier.

 

5. There should be at least another political card that completely discards a law. But yeah, there is not way to ignore a law unless specifically stated (like the previously mentioned Ghosts example)
