noticed it on overview as a beacon not a signature that required scans. warped to it to find 2 large structures in the distance on either side of a wormhole s877 in the middle. almost crashed my client out and i warped out as an ishtar came out of it but i cant find any info on them apart from articles on this site
but theyre written in some weird undecipherable font that make my eye holes burn when i try to read.

something about a drifter sentinel site that requires two people or more to complete simoultaneous hacks in order to advance.
has anyone experienced this? only saw 3 forum posts for s877 and one quoted some info from the website above but nothing specific on them.

an isd found this on the drifters page which i overlooked.
mentions them as 1 of 5 drifter systems and i have 2 of them here in the same system with a drifter battleship flying around

hi there, what you found was is known as a Drifter Wormhole which as you seen on the overview as an "Unidentified Wormhole". These are not your normal variety of WHs as they are also shattered WHs, meaning the planets are shattered and nothing can be anchored other that a mobile depot.

There are five drifter WHs that you can Identify on warp in to the beacon. These particular WHs are guarded by Drifter Battleships and you can be attacked if you try to enter one, I do suggest however wait until they either enter or leave and then jump thru. An exploration ship is mandatory because once you get inside, you have to scan down every signature in order to even find your way out if you fail to book marked the hole you entered from.

I have been doing research in these and set up a base of operations for the forseeable future, and hope to get the results I'm after.
