What's the rarest find you've found in space?

I found a black hole system with two research stations and a full [REDACTED] station. The loot was beautiful.

A Terran world with rich farmland, massive organics, ultrarich ore, and abundant rare ore. Unfortunately, we can't make outposts yet so it was just another class V survey chip.

I had someone in one of my streams who'd found an odyssey just floating in hyperspace and was able to reactivate it.

Otherwise, my finds include a Sunder in the belts near chicomoztoc (brilliant early game start, especially if you get ion beams. Just look at a domain drone and it dies), a colossus floating in hyperspace, numerous class V and IV worlds, a research station, both types of [REDACTED] station, a mothership and a healthy respect for flies smashed into windscreens when those "friendly" prospectors turn out to be not so friendly.

I found a couple of Onslaught battleships today!

I just had to remove the surrounding hegemony fleets from them first  ;D

I found a pristine imperium dreadnaught yesterday. No need for restoration, just basic hull repair.

Not the ship, but the missiles - Lens HDEM rack. They dropped out from a research station and it's literally the first time I ever saw them anywhere across all my playthroughs. I always loved the old laser torpedoes from Tartiflette's 'old' SCY mod - and these somewhat remind me of them. Though I guess they act more like sabot's in fact, like very explosive (+ some emp) sabot's :D

They're pretty nifty coup' de grace weapon. Naturally I simply had to put them on my Vesper (wink to Soren and his description of how Vesper crews love to tinker and customize those ships). :)

Came out of the jump point to find a survey ship and a mess of probes.

First game on vanilla 0.8a I was on a "scan something or other mission" on the edge of the starmap when I found a derelict onslaught. I saved, but found there was no way I could get enough fuel to bring it back, so I had to leave it there :(

You could probably take them and then immediately mothball them. You should be able to make it back to port and stick them in storage until you can actually use them.

come to think of it, if I didn't salvage or board them but just left, will they still be there months later?
Usually, yes.
