So if it's true that wharf/shipyard without admin center still counts as admin center it can explain a bit.
Trading Stations (Terrans have many names for them) seem to count as "admin"; their claim to sector ends only when entire station is gone.

You get reputation when you destroy ships belonging to a faction that is hostile to the station owner, in case of CAB that would be ZYA.

There's also a way to force spawn Xenon and Kha'ak using the encounter mechanic: fly to the outer boundaries of the sector, far from the center. At a certain point the game tries to make empty space more interesting and fetches some ships from some other sector, jumping them to your position. Sometimes you get SCA attacking some miners, sometimes you get only Kha'ak or Xenon. If you get those, they usually try to attack you (meaning they'll follow you if you stay at a distance of around 10km). Once you get those Xenon/Kha'ak to follow you, just lure them to the CAB station and destroy them there.

Unless your reputation with CAB is locked, you can repeat it until you get enough rep to land there. After that you can do mission etc.
Actually quite fond of luring XEN and KHA ships from the edges of the map. Went in search of the Free Port in Silent Witness XI, and found a little station very near the edge of that sector. Use that station as cover and let the station guns do the heavy lifting while I finish them off and collect the goodies. Not that hard to lure them if you've got a reasonably fast ship that can get out of range before they do any real damage.

In the end it wasn't so easy to take ownership of sector. I had to pull down my fleet of doom and try few scenarios .
The one which worked was:
- destroy shipyard completely
- destroy defense station completely
- and it strange it wasn't necessary to destroy all wharf but only admin center
Still I think it's kind of bug because previously when I took sectors from Teladi I only needed to destroy admin centers. I repeat I didn't have to destroy all station . :rant:
So now time will show if ZYA stops destroy CAB station, or CAB will start to build new stations, or CAB start to buy or build their own ships as for now I didn't see even one CAB freighter .
CAB had quite large fleet but after war with me and ZYA they lost all fleet and until now they did not rebuild it. :gruebel:

To rebuild a fleet they need a shipyard/wharf first. If you get a building mission from them - no matter what they want - just add a few extra modules (ship fabrication) to it. After that supply them.

Meanwhile you can try to sell them ships yourself. Blacklist your own shipyard for anyone but CAB and see what happens.

What happened next.
Sector is mine but it didn't change anything in ZYA activity, I think it's even worse and ZYA bring to Acrimony almost all forces loosing with Xenon in another sectors. Strange decision .
CAB didn't start to build new stations, even didn't rebuild two stations which were destroyed by ZYA. Only one station which try to rebuild after the last beta patch is CAB trade station which is destroyed in second by ZYA, and over again.
Can't catch any mission for building anything for CAB, just all the time low and medium mission nothing hard, waited even with SETA but just nothing.
I set my shipyard and wharf to allow ship building to CAB also. What CAB started to build ... only few M and S fighter which died very quickly at attacking ZYA station. They even didn't wait to have bigger squadron just attacking in three fighters station. Brilliant. CAB didn't start to build even one freighter and even one L ship. Without rattlesnake they won't push back ZYA from sector.
I'm willing to build for them fleet of doom but they don't want to be rescued. :?
Not so easy to help faction which want to die :D

The last info from saving these who don't want to be saved.
After long waiting for mission to build something for CAB I catched one. It was to build hull factory so I built hull factory with wharf and shipyard.
Did it change anything ??? ..... No .... . CAB used wharf to repair few fighters which was made by my wharf and that's it . They didn't build even one rattlesnake or freighter.
So if it's implemented in game that in my plot they are not allowed to have ships I won't fight with game :rant: and I have reached my goal 8) which was achieve with CAB +27 so have their paint mode which on military ships looks quite good.
Shame that we cannot have another default paint mode for civilian and military ships.
In the meantime HAT wanted to build defense station so built for them one with wharf and shipyard and they also didn't build even one ship for themselves , only started repair service for ANT, ZYA and Plunderer ships.
I can understand HAT as they didn't have their Shipyard/Wharf but CAB ?? They had all :gruebel:
