Well if not outright slavery, then how about bringing captured offenders to a military station for summary justice and them *perhaps* being sentenced to do indentured community service as allied ship or station crew (as a relatively attractive alternative to hard labour and incarceration)?

In my personal opinion, I am not really bothered about trying to capture enemy "ejectees" or use them for anything. I'd be absolutely fine with just them ejecting into a pod and zooming off to the nearest station without being able to interact with them. As long as I can still capture their ship that is what matters.

That would be news to me. Seeing that they still mention the option of slavery in the game description on Steam, fixed bugs regarding slavery in the latest patches, and even reviews telling about this option, I feel it's hard to believe that this feature isn't available anymore.

It's a game for crying out loud.

If it's illegal the player should be able to do it anywhere, but has to deal with the consequences if they are caught.

Slavery exist in the game, but players can not "enslave". There is a mod though that makes it possible to do so.

Hmmm... And maybe a smart entrepeneur could deal with indenturing contracts and "indentured personel" transport between stations.

Of course high profile contracts could prove to be more valuable

Well to get around the politically loaded definition "slave" we could just call them freedom impaired ;)

Keep in mind that it's still a work in progress although it's taking shape nicely.

ah. it was fun to grab ejected pilots and sell them to Marine Training facilities after turning them into freedom impaired. I had 500 hundred of them still in a TP prison ship in X3. I really gotta boot that up sometime.
