Is retreat EVER anything but 'commit suicide'?

Seriously, why even have it for an option.   I have never made a successful retreat. 

 

Is it even possible?

The unfortunate thing about retreating is that they made it so if your ship doesn't have any moves left, you can't retreat. As for those times when you can retreat, I recommend always going into the tactical battle and retreating manually after the mandatory wait time is up. The reason is that, as far as I can tell, using the retreat button from the auto-resolve screen makes your ships fight the battle as normal for the required wait time (is it 20 seconds? I forget) and then has them retreat, as opposed to having your ships avoid the enemy for as long as possible and then retreating.

I don't use the retreat option either. Like Spud, i launch the battle and try to keep my ships from doing something stupid. I find the AI in the battles fairly basic.
