A different problem.
One of my miners found a derelict Drill Vanguard into "The Void" within the hazardous area. If i go there myself and try to claim it my ship will be destroyed but even before that the Drill gets destroyed in seconds.
Tried to send a ship with marines but it can't be claimed remotely.
If i teleport myself there both ships die
I've found that one too a few weeks ago. With the 'Alka-Seltzer' ship, I cheated and edited the save to move the ship out of the hazardous area. I couldn't see any other way of getting the ship without cheating.

I do not intend to cheat so early in the game. I will try to exhaust all my vanilla options before modding or cheating. There has to be a solution (which I can not find yet) unless its just another bug like so many others still exisiting :cry: .
One can only hope for the best.

From what i understand if you claim the ship it take the radiations damages ?
So, just don't claim it yet and push it outside with a bigger ship =o
Just get out of the area time to time to regen your shields/ hull
That may take some time but it should work.

No it will not work. If you are present,even if your ship survives, which I doubt, the Drill will die from radiation even before you even approach it. If you send out marines they will die almost immediately upon launch. The only solution would have been if the ship that found it in the first place had marines in it and could board it remotely but it was just a miner with no marines so it couldn't do anything at that time, besides it was still too early in the game and didn't know much at the time.
trying to get close it, the moment it appears in your radar when you are IS it starts deteriorating and dies within seconds. if you are OOS nothing happens.
There must be a solution to this however I just can't find it at the moment.
Or may be there isn't one and just leave there as a ghost ship :lol:
If there is a way around that however I will let you all know if I find it. Since its only a Drill Vanguard its not such a big deal anyway.

Very good find - it is one of the static located ships.
I have updated main post with all statically deployed derelict ships, and that one I didn't found initially.
I tried to board it but ship was destroyed quickly.

I noticed when I send remotely other ship to that location, it doesn't get destroyed.
I presume it could work to send other ship (with good hull/shields) very close to the Drill VG, teleport to it, eject to EVA, claim fast by scanning and exiting asap the dangerous area..

Easiest solution (with losing shields and weapons on Drill), is to order the ship with marines to remotely capture it.. Works like a charm!

real pity is that these are just the same regular ships you find and can buy everywhere.

They could at least have made it a 'variant' that's not on sale... maybe its an older ship after all, with slightly different (not necessarily better) stats....
I think they're sourt of like a quest for new comers, giving an idea of the ships available and get started style mission rewards

Only ship haven't been able to Claim, tried various ways and to end result, BOOM.

Be interesting to see the puzzle's solution if anyone manages to obtain it.

The drill vanguard can be claimed as follows in a new game. I got it by accident lol

- set global orders to claim ships
- make sure your ships have a marine on board
- when your trader etc finds it they will claim it. As long as you are OOS the hazards will not be a problem

I tried doing this and accidentally did it another way!

- Sent a ship with a marine on board and orders set to claim ships while I waited out of sector
- Ship found it and sent message but didn't claim, and message arrived while I was getting attacked by a Xenon M so couldn't reply
- After dealing with the M tried to tell the ship in sector to claim the Drill but found I couldn't
- I right-click on Drill and select 'Claim', only to see a marine dispatched in a boarding pod from my ship (across the other side of the galaxy from The Void)
- Checking back a while later I find my marine has successfully claimed the vessel and I move it out of the danger area without visiting the sector in person
