Re: Why didn't the Federation salvage Empok Nor?

Who knows? Assuming that the station was NOT in orbit around some planet that wasn't seen (because it was ALWAYS on the other side of the camera at that time), or for that matter near an cluster or belt of asteroids (far enough to avoid navigational hazards, and JUST far enough not to be seen), perhaps it was being towed somewhere, broke free, and was decided to abandon it wherever it ended up or drifted. Or perhaps it did simply that, and broke orbit somehow after it was abandoned... The same way its onboard computer keeps a lookout for passing ships to make sure its orientation is at least 45 degrees to their apparent "up".
