Oh, one thing I forgot to mention: Priority Intercept...Write Reply
Oh, one thing I forgot to mention: Priority Intercept Attack (previously called "cloak intercept", which was a misnomer and may have been the source of your confusion @Renathras). When using the Intercept mission with PE set, ships with a cloaking device will attack their intercept target first, then fight other ships in battle order (numeric friendly codes, Kill mission, PE, ship IDs, etc.).

For robbing ships, I would guess that they are moving to a planet to "hide" (unless you own the planet or have a ship in orbit, you won't be able to see them). And since they are usually gravitonic ships, that planet could be up to ~165 ly away.
