I don't know if that's always true. When I've used Engi A to asphyxiate, I've never gotten a choice for what slave I want from a slaver ship. Half the time, none of them survive.
You capture the ship and get higher scrap reward and a higher chance to find a weapon, so for that purpose killing the crew is
all that matters.
If you also want a chance to find a prisoner or slave then you'll have to capture the ship without asphyxiating everyone. Whithout life support, everyone on the ship dies.
