I was on the final mission for the Gurista pirate epic arc when rl hit me in the nuts. I had no choice but to quit at once and run off to perform some fatherly duties.

Will that mission despawn on me?
Will I still be in the middle of combat when I log back in?
Will an ISD, kind and rightious as they are, reset it for me if not?

Not until your 7 days are up. It will reset at DT, barring mission-critical items.

If you're asking, your ship has already died.

Not unless it was a game bug.

Epic Arcs are set up into chapters. If you fail a mission, usually you'll be sent back to start that chapter over again.

The missions reset at Downtime so when you warp back to the location after Downtime, you'll be starting the mission over again. Hopefully your ship is still intact and was able to do emergency warp when the game was disconnected. After you log back in, your ship should be in warp back to the mission site.

ISD can't reset missions, only CCP Game Masters can when asked via Support Tickets.

did you seriously log out in the middle of a combat site? and if you didn't get rid of scrams before you did then yeah, your for sure dead.

next time warp out to a planet/sun before you log

Update for those who care to know:

Nothing despawned or reset. My e-warp actually worked as intended. I was lucky enough to log back on shortly before down time and finished the mission with no issues.

Yeah, nothing despawned or reset because you logged back in before Downtime which kept the mission site in the same condition as when you left it.

Good to hear everything was OK, make sure you got the Faction standing increase for completing the arc. Sometimes the server doesn't add it automatically like it's suppose to do. A Support Ticket will get it fixed if it didn't.
