When I enter an area with multiple friendly ships, Earth Spacedock, for example my display fully identifies most ships by Fleet, Captain, and Name of Ship. However a few ships only give out ship type, "Dakota Class Cruiser" or "Olympic Class Science Vessel" for example. Unlike in battle situations, this appears to be unrelated to distance. It's as if there are ships orbiting around without working transponders. They also appear to be always moving. My suspicion is that they are they just part of the scenery and not players. Is this correct?

Yes, those ships are simply NPCs that fly around to give the system some semblance of population on the off chance that there aren't any players sitting around outside.
