Won't help. If it spawns a ship that isn't on ANYONE's list, and everyone buggers, no one moans. But, if it spawns a ship that isn't on *MY* list, assuming I was actually an accolade hunter, why should I get banned for your sake?

If this is really the primary cause of bailing, then here are a few solutions that will actually help.
1. Remove the ban penalty for actually completing the mission: Then the incentive to ditch is greatly reduced.
2. Increase the completion pay to justify the drawback of being banned for doing so: This will populate the mission with mark farmers instead of accolade hunters, who don't care what they're destroying, and don't care much if the odd accolade hunters bails because that guy was useless to him anyway.
