For interactive objects and anomaly nodes hitting 'V' will do a sensor scan and point towards the nearest object. For the various NPC trader vessiel you need to find it depends on the mission. for "War is Good for Business" just keep scanning traders. There are more then 3 which will qualify. Just keep scanning until you get your 3. For singular trader in the mission in Romulan space, it's always the light trader. It won't move totally out of the area. You just need to keep scanning the vessels in that final area.
The freights in the asteroid clouds in the Exploration missions, I will totally agree they are hard to find at a times. But Cryptic is consistent when it comes to placing things on the Exploration maps. The disabled freighters are always in the middle. Take it slow and look for the odds shaped asteroid. For other type of space missions, there will be a visbly larger and different asteroid (or other things) that the mission objective will be near. And on ground missions, there are 5-6 "clearings" on the map which mission objectives will be placed. And there will always be a "path" which will connect the "clearings" on the maps. Sometimes it's extremely hard to see the "paths". but with practice you'll be begin to see the patterns on the maps.
