Like all the best internet secrets - only a few (*cough* thousand) people know about it :D

I haven't found any rare stuff yet but I did craft the security hacker thing in the lawless place that is DeVries. On my next trip to the local ship supermarket in Far Out I totally forgot I had it and barely escaped with 10% hull after every single police ship in the zone came after me lol.
:lol:

and Yeah I've had that happen just with hacker chips.

Sorry if this has been asked before.

I got the training book(s), but how do I upgrade the crew members?

I think you do it through the show skills info screen that has the skills and stars on it. For NPCs that don't have the show skills option in the radial menu you'll need to access their skills screen through the management section of the ship's or station's info dialog screen.

Someone in Beta forum reported that it only worked when they were on the skunk though. :o

You need to first craft a gift from inventory items, then win a normal smalltalk game. You will then get the option to give the NPC the gift unlocking a hard smalltalk game. Win that game and you'll have the skill books as a reward option.

I think gifts are part of patch 3,0, not Teladi Expansion specifically.

Are the skill books random or do they depend on the npc?

Not sure if the skill books available from the (successful) extended chat are random, but there are at least 3 books atm: Nav, Combat & Leadership. You can apply any book to the appropriate skill (if it needs upgrading) on any of your NPCs

So far all I was getting was Leadership books, but just had a Nav book drop. Presumably there will eventually be others for Engineering, Management etc..

So you can have an NPC with 5 stars in all assuming you have enough books?

Yes. You can craft the gifts by buying stuff from the merchants and then just save/reload until you get the right book you want. They also have a hire the best npc option if you win the hard small talk game. The reward npcs are usually pretty good. Engineers seem to give engineering books quite often.
