Although automated machines of war were forbidden in core Domain space, war drones were quietly employed outside of officially incorporated volume. Frontier garrisons were often bolstered by drone ships, and they were deployed liberally against rebellious worlds to tip the terrible balance of attrition, setting the industrial might of the Domain versus the lives of 'freedom fighters'.
Numerous vulnerabilities leave the Picket-class drone easy to underestimate, but woe to the captain who commits this error. If the Picket is allowed to follow its programming to close aggressively with its target, it will unleash shockingly dense volume of light-caliber fire to rip apart unarmored hulls."

–In-Game Description

The Picket is one of the drone types defending derelict ships. It can be deceptively dangerous due to its high speed and massive close-range fragmentation DPS.
