[X3AP] Some AI ships docking at stations... what for?

I've been watching for a while activity at an impulse emitter factory, some cargo ships were selling resourses, others buying product, but other non-cargo ships looked like they docked there, did nothing and then leave. I thought they might have had business with merchants but I didn't notice it. Just saving game? :mrgreen:

There are many types of purely cosmetic (immersion fluff) TS/TP ships that just travel around docking at stations and then leaving (or even not leaving which is more of a pain). Some examples are passenger shuttles, passenger liners, tour ships, prisoner transports, commuter transports, station staff shuttles, etc, etc. Some seem to make a bee-line for Player-owned Equipment Docks and Trading Stations and then block up docking arms unless you give them somewhere equally attractive and available to go to.
A dog has a master; a cat has domestic staff.

especially those personnel transport missions. if u went on buying spree of marines, start seeing bunch of tps doing taxi to the base. only boarding pods get magically spawned :P
