There are 5 Pods when you warp in, one of them is not damaged (highest pod vertically, info description: "A life pod from a long since destroyed ship").
Approaching this pod will trigger a message and spawn a container.
Loot the passenger Oura Madusaari, needed to unlock the acceleration gate.

2nd Pocket

You will encounter periodic damage from the anomaly from about 5km in, 5 hits of ~200 to 400 damage each.
Destroy the Pressure Silo Debris structures, the one closest to the Anomaly will drop 2 containers.
Loot the objective item, Dr. Fajah Ateshi.

the marked one

Bring Oura Madusaari to skip the life pods and go straight through the gate.
Destroy the Silo closest to the Anomally and ignore the rest. Loot the container.

Fitting a Micro Warp Drive or Afterburner is recommended.
Approaching the other four damaged Pods will also trigger a message and the Pod contains a Stranded Pilot (not needed to complete the mission).
Using Combat Drones to kill the Debris Silo may kill them. Sentry Drones will take damage but survive.

The Debris Silos drop T1 ammo, the explosion causes 800 omni damage.

Flavour Text

I'm naked and I'm walking the blue-painted halls at military academy, and it's okay because everyone gets hazed like this and I'm in better shape than all of them so I'm not ashamed, except this means they can see the scars twining from my back and down to my knees like snakes, and what starts as laughter turns into confused whispering and sounds of pity as they realize how recently I was a slave, and I want to kill them slowly just like I did the man who gave me the scars, but I just walk on, seeing only red.

He promised we would go to the beach on my birthday, so we went, even though it was raining, even though we didn't know where mom was again. I was collecting shells, and I found one that was perfect and round and smooth but then I looked back to the shore and saw him just standing there, the first time I'd ever seen him cry, and I wanted to say something but couldn't, just stood there, frozen, the shell crunching in my fist, and I looked down and my hand was bleeding but I didn't feel it at all.

They called me to identify the body, and I told them she divorced me last year but they didn't care because she had no friends, no family on the planet at all. I went in and they pulled back the sheet and she was there beautiful like she was asleep, and my full name was carved delicately into her left arm like calligraphy, the blood dried like rust on parchment. Every time I closed my eyes for a full year after I saw that. I still miss her.

"You have failed your family," he tells me with gentleness I know he's incapable of feeling. "You have dishonored us. You know what to do." And I know that the honorable thing is to fall on my sword like a good girl, so I take it out and push it through his chest and show him exactly what I think of his precious honor. I will never have to apologize again.

Place the "Neurowave Pattern Scanner" you received from your agent in the Anomaly to complete the mission.

When approaching the Anomaly (30km) it will spawn an Amarr Cruise missile battery.
There is no need to destroy it, as when you approach the anomaly, a message appears and it ceases firing.

Fitting a Micro Warp Drive or Afterburner is recommended.

1st Pocket

Last ship killed in each group triggers a spawn.
Attacking any group will aggro the entire pocket, spawns remain passive unless attacked.

1st Group

Auto aggro
2x Battleship (Patriach Alvus/ Alvus Creator/ Ruler)

2nd Group

3x Cruiser (Viral Infector/ Devastator/ Violator Alvum)
2x Battelcruiser (Crippler/ Striker Alvatis)

3rd Group

1x Elite Frigate (Strain Render Alvi) Web/ Scramble
3x Frigate (Barracuda/ Devilfish/ Hunter/ Silverfish Alvi)
2x Cruiser (Viral Infector/ Devastator Alvum)

4th Group

3x Battleship (Domination/ Matriarch/ Spearhead Alvus)

1st Spawn

2x Frigate (Hunter/ Raider Alvi)
2x Battleship (Swarm Preserver Alvus)

2nd Spawn

2x Frigate (Devilfish Alvi)
2x Battleship (Alvus Controller/ Spearhead Alvus)

3rd Spawn

3x Frigate (Decimator Alvi)
2x Cruiser (Bomber Alvum)
1x Battlecruiser (Crippler/ Defeater Alvatis)

The acceleration gate to the next pocket will become functional once the two Batttlecruisers from Group 2 are destroyed.

2nd Pocket

Initial Group

1x Elite Frigate (Strain Render Alvi) Web & Scramble
3x Frigate (Hunter/ Sunder Alvi) Trigger
1x Battlecruiser (Striker Alvatis)

Single Spawn

2x Frigate (Decimator/Render Alvi)
2- 3x Cruiser (Disintegrator/ Violator Alvum)
1- 2x Battlecruiser (Defeater/ Enforcer/ Striker Alvatis)
4x Battleship (Swarm Preserver/ Domination/ Spearhead Alvus/ Supreme Alvus Preserver/ Alvus Ruler)

Destroy the two BCs (Crippler/ Striker Alvatis) in group 2 to "spawn" the acceleration gate. The gate is not locked, but warp scrambling frigates will prevent you from using it.
Use an afterburner to make your way to the rogue drone ship and drop Fajah Ateshi into the can which completes the mission, no drones have to be killed.

The Anomaly is 30- 50 km away from the warp-in. Dropping Fajah Ateshi inside the "Rogue Drone" ship next to it completes the mission and leads to the destruction of the (Orca Class) "Anomaly" a few seconds later.
Alternatively you may put Fajah Ateshi inside the "Anomaly", it will disapear (jump out probably) and mission will be completed with trying to save the crew.
Attacking and killing the scrambling frigates did not cause the additional spawn. Attacking one of the Sunder Alvi did however.
If you can one shot the frigates the spawn will not appear.

Loot and Bounty
Loot + Salvage: ~1.5 mil.
Bounty: ~8.85- 9 mil.
