Contested Gallente Skeleton Comet is a COSMOS combat site located in Deltole. It is a static site that shows up as a warpable beacon in overview.
|The Skeleton Comet are the skeletal remains of a comet picked clean by Gallente miners in the early days of the Federation.
The remains of the mining equipment are long since gone, used as material in the construction of the safety guardrails running through the comet to make navigation of tourist yachts easier. But the tourist activity has dwindled to almost nothing in recent years, due to the local smugglers using it as their main pirate haven in the constellation.
The first room contains periodically respawning rats, some structures and two acceleration gates. To access the items inside the Scorched Containers you will first have to destroy the group that sits on them.

Serpentis Survey Site
|The Federation miners that worked the Skeleton Comet decades ago found strange ruins and relics in this part of the complex. As none of it seemed to be of any value they left it alone. Decades later it was established that these ruins belonged to a nation now long gone called Yan Jung. They settled in this part of the galaxy when the EVE gate still remained open, but are now long dead.
The Serpentis smugglers drove all the excavators working for the University of Caille out when they took over the Skeleton Comet and are now rummaging through the ruins trying to find anything of interest. The Serpentis built this survey site originally as a place for their excavators to work from, but since then it has become a full fledged spy base for the whole constellation. Here the Serpentis gather all data and intelligence they acquire throughout Araz.
From the Survey Site one can reach the ancient ruins themselves, but the Serpentis smugglers have locked up the gate leading there. Perhaps one of the Serpentis surveyors has one on him.
This room contains two clusters of hackable containers protected by a range of frigates, cruisers and battleships. The gate deeper is locked and requires Smuggler Knot Lock in your cargo hold. The key is not consumed on use.
Drone Infested Corridor
|There are a lot of rogue drone nests in Algintal and this is one of the biggest. The Federation built a watchtower here to protect tourists traveling between the Skeleton Comet and the Chasm.
The rogue drones attacked and destroyed the watchtower several years ago, leading to the eventual evacuation of Federation forces from the complex. Serpentis smugglers moved into the vacuum and seem to be coexisting peacefully, though nervously, beside the mammoth drone hive.
This pocket contains drones clustered in groups 150-200 km from warpin.
