Welcome aboard, Commander! Combat is slightly tougher as the AI is much improved. Pick your fights, learn when to run.
Sometimes, there are queues, but not always. Are you using the docking computer, or doing it the proper way - manually?

Manually, docking computers are too slow and once you've got the hang of lining up with the left hand view it's quicker to do it yourself. But the queuing system seems pointless - more realistic but adds nothing to game play and you have to keep an eye on the screens to find out when you get clearance, so no chance to make a cup of tea.

You can always disable it by selecting "Docking Clearance Protocol: Off" in your menu. You'll still have to carefully eyeball the status of the letter box when you'll be trying to dock, though.

Time was, it was disabled by default. Ah, those were the days - no 5k fines for jumping the queue to meet a deadline!
