1st Pocket: Kill all the ships.
2nd Pocket: Kill the 3rd group (with the Mordus Mammoth). To avoid getting stage aggro, fly towards the right edge of the group and wait until the group aggro your ship. You can then attack the ships without aggro from the rest of the room.

Using Sentry drones within ~80km of a group causes the whole room to aggro. However, in each stage it's possible to position yourself so that you can happily take out at least the first group without aggro from the others (except as noted).

Optional Approach
For pilots using Abbadon, Apocalypse, and Paladins w/ Megapulse lasers there is a very safe way of doing this mission:
  1. Get into optimal range to take out both Bounty Hunters (~55km) with Radio. This will aggro the entire room, turn left and fly transversal to the incoming group.
  1. Target priority should be Frigate (Light Drones), Cruiser and then Battleship once they reach 20- 25km.

1st Pocket: 14x Plagioclase, 8x Pyroxeres, and 29x Veldspar asteroids (~26- 81km).
2nd Pocket: 21x Veldspar asteroids (17- 101km).

Loot and Bounty
Loot + Salvage: ~17.4 mil.
Bounty: ~10.6 Mil.
