Just to note that missions via the boards to rescue occupied pods will not count - the achievement only counts pods that you find randomly and which you hand in via the Search and Rescue option in the Contacts menu.

I have found them in a couple of places - randomly on a planetary surface and then on dropping into a Degraded Emissions Unidentified Signal Source, where it appeared to have been left behind following a Thargoid attack.

I understand that they can also be found when dropping into Non-human Signal Sources [Threat 5] (i.e. Thargoid encounters) but haven't seen it myself yet.

(Judging by experience of other Thargoid encounters, you will need to be ready for it to turn hostile when you open the cargo scoop and move towards the pod, so be prepared to scoop quickly and then boost away to break the mass lock.)
