Polar Bear Nebula is one of those few gas harvesting sites which, like Icy Nebula, is a COSMOS site as well. Therefore, the site is heavily guarded by pirate NPCs, but the amount of Minable gas makes it worth running. One will see an initial pop-up message at warp-in.

As popup (on warp-in)
Originally thought to be little more than a picturesque deviation from the monotonous emptiness of space, scientists and unscrupulous entrepreneurs alike have begun to appreciate the various gas cloud formations that have been discovered in recent years. Initial research into the properties of the gaseous phenomena revealed that when it came to facilitating the growth of certain types of crystal, they were one of the most conducive environments in the entire cluster.

At first the crystal byproducts were viewed as a potential military innovation, offering slightly improved cost efficiency in electronics and weapons manufacture. When their massive potential for use in booster production was discovered however, viewpoints shifted dramatically, and nowadays they are coveted as a fundamental resource driving the burgeoning booster industry.


The site is defended by Serpentis NPCs, which are also the primary pirate NPCs of the region.

When you approach the area, the Drug Farm Overseer broadcasts:

In local
"Gather around me men, we must defend the Booster farm and the Viridian Cytoserocin cloud to the last man! I'll flay any deserter alive!"

After that, the following message is broadcasted 12 times when combat attempt is made on the NPCs:

In local (after attacking)
The Overseer has sent repair-bots in all directions, which swiftly repair nearby Core vessels.

Minable Gas Clouds

The site spawns 1 large cloud of of Viridian Cytoserocin, containing 9,000 units of gas. Mining the gas also causes minor amounts of thermal damage occasionally.


This site is primarily found in Cloud ring region, i.e. Null-sec space.
