|This deadspace field appears to have been infested with a strain of Rogue Drones. Rogue Drones are a self-replicating "lifeform" controlled by artificial intelligence, often in the form of a lucid communication hivemind or centered inside one of their dreaded Rogue Drone Mothers. This particular complex is the construction site of a new hive, far away from its maternal headquarters.
DED Threat Assessment: Minor (2 of 10)
|This deadspace complex pocket is under Rogue Drone domination. According to information gathered by explorers, it appears they have begun construction of a small hive deep inside the warp disruption field.
The first sector contains an old acceleration gate leading towards the outskirts of the drone operation.
|2 x Drone Termite/Firefly Apis|
|The outskirt pocket of the complex seems to serve as a some kind of a defence perimeter. We have picked up multiple signals of drone activity from within the pocket, leading us to believe it is populated with weak and easily replaceable worker drones.|
The ships in this pocket spawn gradually. The Strain Operation Bunker may look like an overseer structure but drops nothing valuable and gives heavy standing hits from Rogue Drones if destroyed.
This pocket can be completely ignored. The acceleration gate is unlocked.

|1 x Strain Operation Bunker|
|1 x Ancient Acceleration Gate|
|This central pocket of the complex is the construction site of a rogue drone hive. If left uninterrupted, the complex might soon become the home of a rogue drone mother which would seriously jeopardize security within the system.
The construction supply containers have been reported to be defended by heavier types of rogue drones, thought to serve as overseers of the construction process.

This combat site does not drop much of anything valuable. Most of the time the 5th tier overseer's personal effects are the only item of value. The faction module in final room is very rare.
