    ... Supply Ship render has a starfield background plate that a bit is brighter than the darkest shadows on the model, which I feel detracts from the realism a bit... I'd love to see more of that supply ship!

    Agreed, darkened up the starfield.

    More work on the Material..
    Currently trying to construct an edge detection module group that detects inside and outside edges separately and works well in both EEVEE and CYCLES. I am very close.

    My tests from both EEVEE (3sec render) and CYCLES (30 min render) with procedural edge wear.

    CYCLES:

    EEVEE:

    Initial verdict..
    Best overall look - Cycles

    Best handling of AO - EEVEE

    Eevee was able to recognize that when there were objects next to each other to not include AO, I have not found a way to remove AO like that in Cycles yet, any thoughts appreciated.

    I have seen several ways to detect edges in Blender but this way seems to be quite effective.
    If anyone is interested in the node tree, let me know.

    Using Blender 3.2

    AO needs to be set for this to work in Eevee render mode

    Edges Group

    Inputs and Outputs:

    Inputs
    • Radius is the size of the edge wear 0 to 100 0 = no wear 100 = widest wear
    • Noise is the amount of noise you want to add to the edges
    • Grad(ient) Outside is the amount of blending applied to the outside edges - 0 is the most blended (no edge wear) 10 is the sharpest edge wear
    • Grad(ient) Inside is the amount of blending applied to the inside edges - 0 is the most blended (no edge wear) 10 is the sharpest edge wear
    • Surf(ace) Noise is a tool to add additional random wear to a mesh. It's not needed but I felt it was nice to wrap all of it up

    Outputs
    • Outside Mask for outside edges
    • Inside + Outside Mask that has both edge types - perhaps for screw and bolt threads that has similar wear
    • Inside Mask for Inside edges
    • Noise Mask for allover random surface wear

    Tree (part I)

    Tree (part II)

    Entire Tree

    Parts list (Nodes):
    • Noise Texture (1)
    • Musgrave Texture (1)
    • Math (4) set to Multiply
    • Ambient Occlusion (2)
    • ColorRamp (1)
    • Invert (3)
    • Mix (1)

    Here it is hooked up:

    Producing these two without modifying when I switch over to Eevee from Cycles
