The players arrive in an unknown system where they meet a hostile drone network. They find out that the drones were left in the system when their jump gate was destroyed and they’ve been protecting it ever since.
The crew decide to have a look at some of the wreckages in the area, something they were forbidden from doing. The drones attack, inadvertantly setting of the jump drive of a wrecked battle cruiser, jumping them, half the cruiser, their ship and one of the drone fleet to an unknown location.
Being seperated from its central parent ship the remaining drone enters into negotiation with the crew, deciding to accompany them until they can return to the drones system, while the crew agree to do everything they can to get the drones reconnected with the galaxy at large.
