Try the UQM save game editor (http://www.dickweed.0nyx.com/downloads.htm).

The problem with the UQM Save Game Editor is that you can not modify everything.  For example, you can not modify the number of credits that you have with the Melnorme.  Looking at the source, it is no wonder since this value is stored in a bitfield within the file and may not be byte-aligned.  I am planning on starting to write a new editor that will fix this issue.

Hex Editor do the best. I don't use savegame editor (well, unless it would allow to edit your escort, i never found out how to do this in hex....).
