There is no drone agression in this mission.
As especially Spawn 1 uses very heavy damping, it's advisable to leave drones out so they can start killing the damping ships. Fitting at least one Sensor Booster module is very helpful as well, do not forget to bring scripts.

When the Core Lord Admiral is killed, the mission is complete. Shooting the triggers first to blitz the mission is possible, but not recommended due to very high incoming dps.

There is rarely another spawn along with the final one. Even more rarely this single ship spawn can be a Shadow Serpentis BS, with the usual chance for faction items and higher bounty.

CategoryCleanup - shiplists.
