Guardian Angels Surveillance Squad is an expedition that escalates from Provisional Serpentis Outpost.

Walkthrough

Expedition start:
It seemed for a while you would manage to get all of the pirates, but evidently one of the guard ships from the Guardian Angels has slipped away. Luckily your scanners seem to have gathered enough information to give you its approximate destination.

The first three locations are usually in low security space while the last location is usually in null security space but this varies.

First Location


Warp in. If Shadow Serpentis is there: kill him, possibly get escalation. Else (or If didn't get escalation): Use acceleration gate, kill Serpentis Security Station (if present), possibly get escalation.

When you warp in to the site there is additional group present. These ships will warp off and won't engage you.

Escalation continue:
The station databanks contain information on the local Guardian Angel security network and among it; a location of yet another station similar to this one. That is your best clue as to where the ships that fled as you entered have gone.

Second Location


Warp in. If Shadow Serpentis is there: kill him, possibly get escalation. Else (or If didn't get escalation): Use acceleration gate, kill Serpentis Security Station, possibly get escalation.

Structures

Station 1 x Serpentis Security Station Trigger for possible escalation
Escalation continue:
To your dismay, the main computers of this station took a direct hit during your assault and any information that might have been there is gone up in smoke. However, your instruments ran through the data from the fleeing ships and have come up with this location as a suggestion to where they might have warped.

Third Location


Warp in. If Shadow Serpentis is there: kill him, possibly get escalation. Else (or If didn't get escalation): Use acceleration gate, kill Serpentis Security Station, possibly get escalation.

Escalation continue:
It looks like a Serpentis executive vessel the angels were escorting got away during the fight. Luckily for you though, one of its communication devices seems to be malfunctioning and is for no apparent reason sending out a constant stream of sentimental and dreamy meditation muzak. Your instruments have no problems tracing where it is coming from. This wailing is extremely irritating. Aggravating in fact. The muzak of doom.

Expeditions - Guardian Angels Surveillance Squad (expedition end)
For a while there, you almost wished you had brought more friends with you and you are relieved you managed to blow the station before more could scramble against you. You are also relieved you managed to kill off that blasted gurgle sound. Permanently.
