Sung slave camp, Ferian colony. These are marked green, is there something to be done with them?
Corporate trading post, what are the order codes?

Nope. Sung Slave Camps ARENT marked green, the SLAVE QUARTERS surrounding them are friendlies. Those are sorta grey rectangular boxes floating around the sung station. If you dock with them before they go boom, you will rescue slaves (they are classified as a misc item known as slave coffin. Except there is an alive slave in that coffin, in cryo sleep). Beware that when the station and the turrets try to hit you, they may kill the slave containers. As for Ferians, they are not enemies. They are drones. Kill the colony and they attack you like bees. Their weapon, though a mining one, is powerful and when they swarm you, they pose a threat. You may FARM them. It means that destroy the Ferian FARMERS to get ore. They respawn, so its endless supply. When you get bored, torch the station and loot awesome things. But beware, when threatened the Ferians deploy a vicious ship called a Ferian Warrior. It has blast plates and a powerful Plasma Cannon. Tip. Lead it to friendly stations and let it destroy it, or get destroyed itself. Free loot both ways!

Adding to that, Ferian warriors are easy prey for anyone with a decent engine and an omni weapon, possessing no long range weaponry of their own. Beware of them if you have a slow ship, though, they'll eat you alive unless you use a Domina power to fend them off.

At the trading posts, type in the name of the item you want, or just the first few characters and it will autocomplete.

For instance if you wanted a system map ROM, just type in "system map"

There is also a mod called Trading Post Menu on xelerus. This gives you a list of items you can select from. Even if you don't want to run mods you can have a look to see what is available.
Stupid code. Do what I want, not what I typed in!
