Victory screens lasting for a long time while ships die

Unfun game modes like convoy, admiral assassination, space station assault force us to charge a specific target, often ignoring everything else, because of ridiculously small time windows given. Then if you win, the victory screen appears and shows the space station, or admiral, or convoys exploding, while surrounding enemy ships are firing at your defenseless ships.
The bug: when you kill the target and victory screen pops up, you lose all control. Yet the enemy ships still fire at yours. Since the victory screen can last for 10-15 seconds, it often is enough time for some of your ships to receive heavy damage or outright explode. And for some reason, even if your ships were at 40-50% at the time of victory, ships that get heavily damaged or destroyed during that cut-scene, register as damaged/destroyed in the docks, losing captain progress and forcing you to spend renown you just earned.

are you sure about this? i often win things like station assault by ramming, and the station always explodes taking the ramming ship with it, but its always fine in the victory screen
same for things dieing from regular fire in those last few seconds, if you reach victory with your ship in good condition it stays that way for match results
at least that is how it has always seemed for me
hasnt happened in a while
strange that our experiences on this are so different

Happened today, 2 dauntless rammed a bunch of transport ships, survived with easily 40% hp. Nearby ork had 3 savages and 2 light cruisers. During the victory cut scene, I saw my dauntless taking fire, triggering insubordination, trying to warp out and then dying. In the victory report, dauntless was dead.

Greetings Admirals,

Thank you for your report. Even if this is very unlikely to happen, we will check this part just to be sure everything is working as intended.
