Gandder's Spin was a starfighter maneuver which involved the pilot of a fighter shunting all power to one set of engines - port or starboard - and applying full braking power to the opposite side vents. After a short period, brake power was cut to zero and thrust was cut in half and spread across all engines.
The result would send the fighter spinning wildly for a few seconds around its center of mass before shooting off on a new trajectory when the spin was stopped. Often, the maneuver was used as cover for a group of proton torpedoes fired at a target just before the spin begins.
