I beat Mass Effect on the Xbox a few years ago, and now I'm replaying it on PC so I can carry my save over to ME2. I remember from my previous playthrough that I found a little station with a guy on it who sells really powerful, expensive, high-level items. I remember when I landed on the station, he was under attack, and once you kill the guys attacking him, he'll sell to you.

Unfortunately, I can't remember where this station is. I'm about to head to Ilos, and I can't remember if you can free-roam any more after that, so I'd like to find this station. Neither the station nor the merchant are mentioned on the ME wiki. Thanks for any help!

I want to say he was a supplier for some group, or he was smuggling, or something like that, and because you help him he agrees to let you buy some of his items. –  SaintWacko Jun 29 '12 at 17:12
    
I may have to try booting up my xbox when I get home to see if I can find it. This is driving me nuts. –  SaintWacko Jun 29 '12 at 18:02

That sounds an awful lot like you've confused Yavin Station from the original Knights of the Old Republic (also a Bioware game, and also released on Xbox) with Mass Effect?

good call, that fits the bill very well –  z ' Aug 28 '12 at 19:11
    
Oh my god, you're right! The second I saw that map I recognized it, and the description confirmed it. Not sure how I got it confused with Xbox ME1, as I never played KOTOR on the Xbox. Thank you, I had given up on figuring out where that memory came from! –  SaintWacko Aug 29 '12 at 14:35

The only thing I can think of that comes close is the Pinncale Station DLC. Other than that, the best equipment/gear you can buy in the game is usually from the spectre shop on the citadel.

And no, once you reach Ilos you will be unable to free roam.

I know that wasn't it. This was before Pinnacle Station was released, I believe, and besides, I don't have any of the DLC. The station had a small airlock section, and then a longer area where the one station occupant is. He had unusual mods, ones which may be unique. –  SaintWacko Jun 29 '12 at 16:55
    
@SaintWacko then I don't know since I've never played the xbox version. I definitely don't remember any such shop in the PC version –  z ' Jun 29 '12 at 21:56
    
I can't imagine that they would have removed it from the PC version. I'll have to see if I can find any of the mods I got from it on my xbox save. –  SaintWacko Jun 29 '12 at 23:14
