Sorry, couldn't resist that. There are hidden crates of wares in corners inside stations, you won't know what they are until you collect them though, they may not actually fit in your hold!

In X2 there is no "neutral" state of ship ownership, as soon as a pilot bails the ship is automatically yours, hence no unowned ships to find/claim.

On the other hand, there are some ships that can bail that you wouldn't expect. Par exemple;

Spoiler
All Khaak small ships can bail at any fight rank unless you've bought their schematics. Their lasers, if you can get them intact, are worth 800k for the small ones and 1.6 MILLION for the bigger ones.
Spoiler


Spoiler
At sky high fight ranks, you can get BAILABLE Xenon Ks in Xenon taxi missions, giving you a shot at capping one of the most overpowered ships in the game.

@Rugaard, the Khaak seem to bail pretty often for me. Confused Have you bought the ship and weapon schematics of them? That makes them uncappable until you're some silly high fight rank. The rate of equipment survival, however, is very very low, so you'll have to either get really lucky or save scum like hell in order to get your payday/supercool beamspamming alien M3. Otherwise their hulls are worth as much as any normal fighter. Also, sell the lasers at an equipment dock, not along with the ship: Shipyards offer a greatly reduced selling price for equipment attatched to a sold ship.

That's not unique to X2. It can happen in X3R and X3TC, as well.

Oh, and you forgot one:

Spoiler
M6's in X2 assassination missions. Quite rarer, though.

WHAAAAAAT? Since when? X² for the win!

wrt the Khaak, I know it's not unique to X2, but since they were newly introduced and badass back then, you may not expect them to be cappable. In the X3 games, Khaak suck and you can't even make money from their guns anymore. Naturally you can cap them when they're no use to you. Evil or Very Mad Rolling Eyes
