"Captain! A Ranx Dreadnought requests premission to dock."
"What?!"
"He has an ID."
"How do you know it's not from one of our many, many dead guys?"
*shrugs*
"Is it the Pilgrim?"
"Yes"
"Let him board."
^^^ what is going on through my head everytime I dock.
Ok, so I'm playing as a Ranx DN, and I was wondering why the CSC captain lets me dock. I'm also wondering how I dock, although that is something for a later discussion.

Because it's known that the Dreadnought is not piloted by the Ranx. It's something known as IFF- Identify, Friend or Foe. It's a transponder that relays a signal stating who you are. While IFFs can be taken from a dead ship and reused, it would take a high level of hacking to get it right- and even then, because each IFF transponder is for a different ship, if your profile doesn't match the ship it's attached to, that's an immediate alert.
