I feel like I have been scavenging for hours, sitting in the mini-game. I have gotten at least a dozen crew weapons, of which I have sold off almost all of them. I have killed a dozen ships, fought a couple dozen bands of pirates. But in this entire time, I have seen 2-3 relic cards appear, and I haven't gotten any of them.

I'm not super sure on this, but try abandoned military orbitals and derelict hives for relics. Also you'll need rare percentage on the rewards. If you've got 0% you can't turn up relic cards I'm pretty sure.
Since I never encountered more than one rumor at a time, I can't really choose which type to pursue. Sometimes I will pay for one rumor which winds up being 15 jumps away, and then immediately pay for another, and get a message "there are no more salvage rumors at this time". I don't think I am missing any. I will note down which types I get.
One user Martigen on my current steam thread summarized: " it's a mix of not really using your Scavenger talents most of the time during the game, which could be seen as a disadvantage, but every now and then you'll get a good salvage rumour and hit paydirt, and then it's like you've won the lottery "
Is it on purpose that the wiki doesn't have a dump of relics? (or pistols)?
I'm starting to think it isn't even possible to get a relic on normal difficulty. Tonight I've done three more salvages, at least 30 card games each, and I never even saw a relic card come up. Space hive, 38/32/29 risk 56/31/11 reward; military orbital 30/29/40 risk, 52/33/14 reward; space hive, 34/28/36 risk, 64/22/12 reward. Captain level 22, wisdom 32, pilot 61, elect 81, repair 94. I got 4 gear and 4 weapons, but they're all duplicates from the gear and weapons I got yesterday. I have 8 RTG stashes to run around and pick up, some from today and some from yesterday.
Er what? The level 6 weapons and gear are the relics? The cards are titled "crew gear", "crew weapon", "rare crew gear/weapon". Occasionally but very rarely I see a card pop up with the title "relic", what is different about those cards? The gear dropped by the story missions is usually better (eg the level *11* de revesh blade), somehow I thought relics were more than that.
Regarding pistols on the wiki, the data is there but the heading is in the wrong place. I tried to "edit source" but the source looks right. I tried "visual edit" to move the machine gun heading down, but I just wound up with an extra machine guns heading so I undid that. Can anybody see what to fix?
If it is true that the level 6 weapons from scavenging are what "relic" means, I confess I am disappointed. I was imagining something more like the Holy Grail or Ark of the Covenant. I will screenshot the next time I see a scavenging minigame card which has "relic" in the title. I was positive that meant something different than the level 6 weapons.
