Well I know with any NPC stations if it's full and you have ships there one or more will get the boot (undocked) to make room for the NPC. The ship that was booted will float nearby until room is once again available so it can dock. I don't recall seeing this for player owned stations but it could have happened.

Perhaps if the Hyperion undocked to make room for the NPC, while the Hyperion was headed down the chute (approach vector) to get free of the station, the NPC was headed up the chute and the two vessels collided and one or both vessels perished in the crash. I only think this cause there were times when I was headed up/down the chute of a given station (in a Hyperion no less) and ended up running over NPC fighters/TS's coming down.

Did you receive a messege saying "Your Hyperion Vanguard was destroyed by "blank" (i.e. Argon Mercury Hauler)"?

Im willing to bet on the npc one bcuz there was an npc flyin around in the sector and im pretty sure it said destroyed by my equipment dock but i dont have ti in front of me so i cld b mistaken. Is there ne way to keep npc's from trying to dock at ur stations at all? Thank you for your quick response.

Only thing I can think of is in the station command(?) list where its says "other races can trade with this station" you have a yes/no option. While I believe this works on NPC trader/fighter ships, NPC civilian ships may still be able to dock. I say this since one of my EQ's and one of my complexes in TC and my PHQ in R would routinely have civilian ships docked at them for no apparent reason and still do.

if you turn other-race trading off, the Argons won't be able to dock. Even though they built the station, it's yours now Smile

Then it crashed into your equipment dock, probably whilst executing a docking manoeuvre. This can only happen when you're in the sector though.

Sure, but the reason it crashed into the dock was probably because an NPC ship arrival caused it to undock in the first place (and it probably had to steer to avoid the incoming ship too). Denying NPC ships access to the dock avoids this scenario even if you are IS.

Well that's a totally different kettle of fish! Only a very unusual occurrence of 2 NPC TL/M1/M2/M7(M) wanting to be docked at the ED might possibly cause your capital to undock, and even then it cannot collide with the station or ships while you are OOS. Can you be sure that this is not a ship captured from a mission that had some underlying mission script still running on it (such as fly away and/or self-destruct after a certain time)?

I capd that J from mars when thet L breaks the lines and drops the jump beacon. So i suppose it cld have some kind of backround script running but i have had it for awhile and it never did nething out of the ordinary. i dnt really care about the ship, im just curious what wld have caused it so it doesnt happen to one of my better ships.
