If you're at the beginning of the game, you'll be able to point this out to the people you're dealing with, and they'll help you.

If you aren't, landers may be purchased in the Outfit Starship screen for 500 RU apiece; they go in the slots in the middle of the screen.  If you've got 500 RU handy, you win; otherwise...

(1) Cannibalize parts from your ship (sell them in Outfit Starship) to get enough RU for a lander.  Any component should be worth enough - Landers are the cheapest component available after fuel and crew.
(2) Scrap escort ships (Shipyard screen).  Any will be worth enough for one lander, possibly more.
(3) Go to HyperSpace and engage enemies.  You will get RU from salvaging the wreckage.  In particular, one Slylandro probe is worth 550 RU, more than enough for a lander in its own right.

If your ship is totally skeletal, you're out of fuel, and have no landers and no weapons, you've basically lost already -- sorry.  Get better at combat and be more careful about where you mine.

Incidentally, this is also why it is wise to carry multiple landers around.  (You can have up to 10.)  If you're feeling like this is all too much work to deal with, then saving before attempting to harvest somewhat dangerous worlds would be wise.

(And I'm not sure from your initial comment, but this was one of the games of your youth; it just wasn't heavily marketed except by word-of-mouth amongst fans.)

And just about every realy good game (most in my youth) was never realy marketed well.
