    I have no idea what IM has to do with what that button actually does.

    That was the button they used for instant reverse thrust. What IM has to do with that, I don't know ….

    From Wikipedia: "The main flight control of a Viper is a three buttoned joystick, similar to a jet fighter. The three buttons are labeled FIRE, TURBO and IM, with the fire button being red. The IM button is the reverse thruster. Notably in "Saga of a Star World" and "The Gun on Ice Planet Zero (Pt. 2)" some Vipers have STORES on the joystick instead of FIRE."

    Stands for "inverse mode" according to an interview of a BSG writer.

    Also – explains the stores button etc – in this link – from a Vietnam era helicopter for capturing aerial footage.
