There's usually one nearby the crew skill trainers on the various planets that have them, as well.

There is also one on every starter planet. You had to use it with your first story weapon for a quest.

That'd be the perfect answer... if it worked.

In practice, mod stations only show up on your map when you're nearby, so unless you know the area to look, you'll never see them... unless you just get lucky.

Thus, people asking where to find them is a perfectly reasonable question. If the map actually showed them from a distance, like it does for trainers or taxis, then we could dismiss people with comments like "Use your map".

Where did you see me say it was an "unreasonable question?" Truth be told though, I have lost track of the number of times people have asked questions like "where's my trainer at?" without even looking at the map. Especially when they don't give complete information such as "Where's the Trooper trainer at?". Often times after saying read the map we get to the root of the issue, IE not knowing how to properly use the map. Not necessarily the case here, but I have seen it enough anecdotally to not rule it out either.myself I'd rather spend five minutes explaining to someone how to use the map than 30 seconds just leading their reins. But then I'll still only do that typically if they say "yeah I'm not sure how, can you teach me how?" because I'm not going to waste my time on someone who won't even try.

Ok rant done, with that said TL;DR version - A lot of people don't use the tools available to them first, but if they have at least tried to help themselves then I'm willing to invest some more time to help.
