|We've been dealing with the same drone corruption described by Xarasier. We've managed to contain the contaminated ones inside a deadspace pocket, but that is only a temporary solution.
I need you to scout out the situation personally. I've been trying to get updates from my colleague in the field, but apparently she is having trouble getting clearance for outside communication. Fly over there and make sure the drones are still adequately contained. If they aren't, report back to me. Do not enter into any confrontations with the security forces attempting to contain the drones. Am I clear?
Scout out the drone hive and report back on friendly vessels - Location: Hatakani
There's no danger here if you don't shoot at anything. You'll warp to an acceleration gate. Activate the gate, and you'll emerge into the deadspace room at 75 km from the massive Drone Hive. There are also eight rogue drone frigates, but they will not attack if you leave them alone. Fly towards the Drone Hive - the mission objective will be fulfilled when you are about 10 km from it. Return to Asaka's station to complete the mission.
|Arriving out of warp it becomes immediately clear that whoever is handling security has little idea how to fight drones. Battleships patrol on the fringe of the swarm, seemingly oblivious to just how vulnerable they are without proper support from smaller vessels.|
