hammersmith, Ur-Quan ships are slow, you can evade them in hyperspace.
Plus, Ur-Quans can be easily beaten by Spathi Eluders. If you don't have one, you can anyway run away.
Don't forget to build many thrusters - they should be your first priority. Extract many minerals for building thrusters.

Save more often (when you're in HyperSpace and there aren't any encounter globes around, that's the time to save).  Then you'll be able to reset if you get surrounded and can't fight your way out.

What ships do you have? You'll beat them with a Spathi, and with much practise even with a ZoqFot, but an Earthling Cruiser can't beat them.

If you don't have a Spathi or ZoqFot, then you need to use your Emergency Warp Unit.
While in combat with any ship, press Esc. The ship will turn red and become immobile and eventually leave the Melee arena. Be warned, however, this renders you vulnerable to enemy fire.
If you Esc with the Flagship, you completely leave combat.
I would do like this: Fight with the Flagship and immediately press Esc to leave. Damage is unavoidable, but that's it.

If this doesn't work, consider cheating to make your Cruiser ultra-strong. I'll upload such a cheat immediately.

I do press ESC, but when it goes back to hyperspace it sucks my ship in to another fight........

You could try repeatedly defeating or escaping from the Ur-Quan, but I suspect you're unavoidably dead (you can get stuck in a situation where new ships appear faster than you can get away from them, especially if your flagship is slow). It's very easy to get into a "no-win" situation in UQM by charging blindly into hostile space with a badly equipped fleet (for example; there are lots of other ways to mess up).

An Earthling Cruiser can beat Ur-Quan Dreadnoughts fairly easily. A lucky and well played Cruiser can beat AI Kohr-Ah as well.

Elvish Pillager: Yes, you're right, just keep far from the planet and the Quan... but to beat several battlegroup with a single Cruiser is too much in my opinion.
Indeed.
