Drones are unaligned, NPC ships that appear in certain star systems in the game. Patrolling certain points in a star system, they will attack both Colonial and Cylon ships that come within weapons range. Some are equipped solely with cannons,others with canons and missile launchers. They come in differing types (usually Seeker, Sentry, Guard and Hunter) and in various levels (namely 5, 9, 10, 14, 15, 19, 20, 25 and 29). The higher the levels of the drone, the more hull points and power they will have.
When targeted, drones will appear outlined in yellow on players' DRADIS, and the drones bullets and missiles appear yellow on screen when fired.

This unique drone is a "rogue" Cylon Raider which will attack both Colonial and Cylon players. It has cannons and nuclear missiles (which do approximately 500 damage per missile), the only npc ship which has nuclear weapons of any sort. This ship spawns randomly in a number of different systems, but only in one system at a time. Destroying it counts towards the Drone Clearance daily assignment and it may reward players with rare items in its loot drop.
