Mission briefing
I was assigned a mission from a colleague of mine in Sisters of EVE, who apparently hasn't been able to solve the investigation of a certain deadspace area in Simela. They found an Amarrian slaver compound inside, as well as a few groups of Caldari State combat ships. Obviously this is a threat that must be dealt with.

There are two questions we must answer, how did our enemies manage to get all their equipment and ships into Servant Sisters of EVE space, completely avoiding our surveillance systems at the stargates. And how big exactly is their complex inside the deadspace area which they've been hiding in.

Our problem right now is that the path into the deadspace complex is blocked off by a large armada of Amarrian ships. I seriously doubt you'd be able to handle them, no offense. So your first task is to discover an alternate route into the complex, to avoid direct confrontation with their fleet.

I've located an old, abandoned acceleration gate leading into the deadspace area, which I'm pretty sure the Amarrians are not aware of. The only problem is that it leads to an area infested with rogue drones, who nearly wiped out a mining colony there many years ago. You will have to deal with them when you warp inside. After you have used two acceleration gates, you will find yourself in a room with the final gate, which leads to the drone hive itself. Do NOT go through it, under any circumstances. Your task is to simply eradicate all of the rogue drones inside the first few rooms and then report back to me.

  • Video: Cerberus
  • The Rogue Drone transmission is binary and, when converted to ASCII, says "PREPARE TO DIE, N00B."
