|Hey, [player name], ever been screwed over by the big corporations? Well, here's a chance for some payback. There's controversy out in the [system] system, where ORE lays dubious mining claim to a massive asteroid field. Problem is, independent groups working the field are at risk of being consumed – literally. There's something strange going on out there. Interested in finding out what's happening, and striking a blow for the little guy?
Good, because there's no time to lose. We received a distress signal from a small operation. They were trying to get what they could from the field before the ORE hulks blew through. Something seems to have gone wrong. Find out what happened and save the crew, materiel and product that you can.
Single pocket without gate.
- Pick up the 4x scientists (4m³) at the Survey Post container (10km) then place them in the Mining Outpost container (30km).
- Kill all the drones that spawn
- Killing the last Drone flags the mission complete.
The dust cloud here causes area damage to any player-owned entities nearby, including drones. Triggered by the first rogue drone spawn, the damage inflicted seems to continue until the last rogue drone is killed. After that, the area is safe for mining. Overall damage seems to be around 400-500 HP total, so it's quite manageable even in a frigate.
"Are we glad to see you! ORE is tearing this field apart. All this debris is their doing. They're chewing up rock and spitting it out. Impacts have battered our equipment and knocked out power. But we can't cut out yet! We have a crew of scientists out there somewhere. We've lost contact. Find them before it's too late!"
[Two missing messages in here]
"Thank you! Thank you for your help! But the only way we'll get out of here alive is if you clear the last of the drones out. Our lasers are down."
"We're clear! We're clear! Thank you! We'd all be dead without your help!"
