If I fire a bunch of Friend-or-Foe missiles when I'm leaving a station will they target npcs and neutrals, or only available hostiles?

If there are no valid targets, what happens with the missile?

Will it go after an NPC station or jump-gate?

According to Eve University:

When activated, they will fire on the nearest hostile (ship/drone which has aggressed you).

So no, they will not target neutrals. Just targets that are attacking you.

Maybe you could add a bit more informations. Posting just alink is a bad practice, if the ink ever changes or die, the information will become unavailable. –  Jupotter Dec 29 '11 at 21:23
Under normal circumstances, I would agree with you. However, Eve Uni is a very well established organization in EvE, and maintain accurate information as things change. –  Pyrodante Dec 29 '11 at 21:28
