Wouldn't it change your direction a lot more than it changes yours? Like send you into a mine?

Thanks, guys, for this thread. Really interesting.

I've read elsewhere the thought that the distances make space warfare almost impossible, and that future wars might be an exchange of unstoppable planet-razings.

I guess that depends on how effective the minefields are. Knowing the depths of our human incompetence, I suspect friendly vessels would sometimes take wrong routes through badly-charted minefields. Perhaps one method of war would be cordoning off a planet by disarranging its minefields. And I expect a mine stealth/detection arms race would be a continuing thing.
