Actually, they did - they put a quest beacon in the Rock Homeworlds sector.
Finding the Rock Homeworlds after finding an unmarked Zoltan research facility among the other stars in the Zoltan sector* you found after that Engi sector** you found and within it found the stasis pod and didn't get the hull damage instead is dependent on the RNG.
There, I fixed that for you, and even left off the "which you probably didn't even take anyway because it's so unlikely that you'd get the rest, the weapon was a far more attractive choice."
Though this point will soonTM be moot. The ships are getting easier unlocks in Advanced Edition.
*Supposedly these are also in Engi sectors but I don't remember ever seeing one there.
