There is no exact place where you can find enemy ships in Starfield, since it appears that they spawn more or less randomly. There is one exception, but we’ll get to that in the next section. More often then not, you’ll find them in areas with more traffic, such as major cities. Scour the star map for Hostile Activities, because those guarantee that you’ll encounter hostile vessels. Another good method is to join the Freestar Rangers faction in Akila City, on the planet of Akila in the Cheyenne system. They are interplanetary police, basically, and they often a bevy of bounties against space pirates and the like. Needless to say, you’ll find your share of enemy ships on these missions.

A little trick you can do is making the Armillary on your ship. This will cause the Starborn to attack you more often. On the flip side, riding around in the Razorleaf will make the Spacers fly away from you as fast as their engines will take them. Also, joining the Crimson Fleet turns pirates friendly, taking them off the menu.

The best way to find more enemy ships and farm them in Starfield is the Vanguard Exam Pilot Simulator.
