I haven't run into any motherships or stations yet. Any level / fleet size requirement or places I should go poking around?
For stations, look for warning beacons that put out two or three pings. 2 pings is an officerless station. 3 is an officered one. Sadly they battlestations don't regen...

Annnd I ran into an officered [REDACTED] that completely wiped my fleet, including 3 capital class warships and 3 cruiser class carriers. Pretty impressive.

What does a single ping warning beacon mean then?

Most you'll see is a few frigates in those systems

I noticed that most good ships are in named star systems, (eg Stella Libre, as opposed to Alpha Terror)
I suspect these may be handcrafted systems. If another player goes to the same place, he may find the same ship there.
So, guys where did you find your salvage? Let's all post where we found our loot and have another player check if he can find the same loot in the same star system?

The Paragon, from I think the debris field around the Stargate in Freya

Found a D class Paragon, the engines are stuffed, so it's slowing my fleet down significantly, but she's mine.

And since no Paragon's are available for sale it's the only one in my fleet ;-;

Found a prometheus with over 1000 fuel when I was completely out of fuel in the far corner of the map.

That was actually a little thing that I thought was awesome - nearly every time you find a tanker, it will have a significant amount of fuel (based on it's size) available for salvage. It makes sense and that makes it all the more awesome. Things like that get missed so often.

While not the best thing I've found the most interesting and useful was a Brawler(TT) right after starting with only Glitched Sensors and armed with an Ion Pulser. Having that in my fleet saved me more then a few times and I never knew Tri-Tacheyon had it's own modified ships, bonus knowledge.
