Perhaps everyone else already knew this, but it's new to me.
On the PC version, the 2nd mission is the supernova/refugees mission. What I had never realised before is that if you hang round too long after picking the refugees up, the star really does go nova!
I'd never noticed before because I'd always refuelled as soon as I lost my fuel, i.e. immediately upon entering the system and before collecting the refugees. You also can't buy more fuel at the station. I actually had a really difficult time trying to battle through a Feudal system to the star against a time limit! (Foolishly, I saved when I docked.)
