I don't think ships can actually rust in space. There's no oxygen to combine with to get rust. And there are already damage skins that result when your ship gets shot up and hull goes down. Unfortunately, due to the sheer amount of yoyo-healing in the game, you will either quickly heal back to 100% health, or just as quickly die, so this effect is rarely seen outside of low-level play.
