In the Badlands there are four wrecks. They are patrol 27(3) and the Avenger, a Bounty Hunter light fighter. To find them go on a diagnal course from West Point, about 4 degres South- Southeast of the Ithica Tradelane for 30 or so Km, there is also a jump hole to Texas that comes out by a Junker base.
When you are looking for hidden jump holes to other systems, turn on your Nav Map, then select the "Show Patrols" map. The lines that appear show popular paths that the AI ships use. Almost any path that stretches out beyond the normal trade-lane traffic of a star system will lead to a hidden starport or even a hidden jump hole. Fly out to where the line leads to and turn on the "Solars" option on your targeting computer. You will usually find a place of interest. However, in places with reduced sensor ranges you will probably have to rely on visually looking for something. Also, to find all the paths, make sure to look at the "neutral", "hostile" and "friendly" paths in the patrol paths map. Be wary of stumbling upon an enemy's base.
If you have completed some part of the game and have the Dublin System opened (you have to have access to Battleship Hood) then you can earn money like breathe air. All you have to do is get a load of Customer Goods in Manhattan NY and then transport them to the Battleship Hood. Then you take a load of gold and go to New London (that's on the way back so don't worry). In New London you sell the gold and stuff your cargo with Luxury Food. The difference in price for the Luxury Food in New London and Manhattan is 1000$ so i think it is worth to deliver.
There is a pirate base located in the badlands in the New York Sector. Here's a way to slim down your search. Take the Norfolk Shipyard>>Texas Jumpgate route to the Texas Jumpgate. From there, head into the Badlands (watch out for the Outcasts that spawn here) Now, keep your search confined to the areas of E6 and E7. Now, keep the "ALL" filter selected on your target list. When you get close enough to it "Buffalo Base" will appear in the list. Don't even attempt to go to it yet, get to the closest base you can and save. You will notice that under normal conditions the base is hostile (highlighted in red), and therefore you cannot dock with it. However, if you can manage to kill off 50+ Bounty Hunters/Liberty Navy/Liberty Police, you can slowly convert the base to allow you to dock...and enjoy the splendors within. :) (I recommend killing the bounty hunters, as you usually get 5 in a group, whereas the police and navy usually massacre you with huge numbers)
