I believe some people were also got the same problem like me.

It's the issue about undocking. When someone's undocked, her/his ship is vulnerable for insta-lock and ganking for about 5-10 seconds. The number of seconds seems low but it can decide the safety of the ship. 5 seconds is enough to insta-lock and warp disrupt the undocked ship. So, I'd like to suggest some ideas about this issue. 1st, all undocked ships will start from inside the station undocking bay, 2nd, the undocked ships are cloaked just like when we jump through a stargate, 3rd, all undocked ships are invulnerable for about 10-20 seconds. I dunno if CCP has other idea to fix this issue. I hope CCP will fix this issue soon. This is a simple and sometimes annoying issue. Thanks for the attention.

ummm, you are invulnerable 30 seocnds and its only broken by doing something. Only way to "hit you" is aoe weapons during this 30 seconds. Which in empire causes concord cascades if the smartbomb pops any shuttles/frigs/pods in the area.

ganker does this...don't worry. After his temp ban or nasty gram from to low sec he goes because this is the fastest way to shoot on site sec status in empire there is in eve. .

hit control-space on the black screen between hitting undock and actaully getting the undocking scene. puts the brakes on your ship. Unless a kick out station....ride out the redock delay timer and dock up again.

Or to be bold and smart....before undocking your pith a fit mission runner....take uot a cheap fast ship. fly straight till off grid. make bm out on that path. Gratz, you now have a insta warp. recommend a mwd frig to speed this up.

how to use this insta warp:

Undock and spam warp to for this bm. Straight flight path is less time to warp (no aligning...its jsut power up the warp drive).

Nice advice, ms. Nezu. But still that smartbomb thing is very unpleasant. I'll try to use the insta-warp solution you mentioned cause there's no other way to be totally invulnerable while undocking. Thank you again for the advice, ms. Nezu.
