I spend quite a lot of time probing for derelict ships from the days when folks routinely left them in “safe” spots. Found one today that was an ancient hulk indeed: A plain Badger with two Cold-Gas I Arcjet thrusters fitted, drifting cold and aimless through space more than 40AU from the nearest celestial object.

It’s been some years since they added the “only one afterburner active per ship” rule, so I suspect this Badger’s been drifting, abandoned, that whole time. Sadly, other than the afterburners (which are still valuable, being best named) the ship was unfitted and bereft of cargo.
