A hard-shelled frigate that is somewhat bizarre to behold, the Imicus’s designs were presented to the Federation Navy by CreoDron roughly forty years ago, and were shelved for almost half a decade before the Gallente Federation put it into service as a noncombatant scouting and reconnaissance vessel.
Built around a frigate blueprint tracing its origins to a design developed before the Caldari-Gallente war, the Imicus possesses very limited offensive capabilities, capable of fitting only a single Turret module. Despite this, it remains a versatile and flexible choice due to its ability to launch a total of four Light Drones at once, more than any other Tech I exploration frigate
While exploration-focused Tech I frigates as a whole provide bonuses to Scan Probe strength, Relic and Data Analyzer potency, and Salvager duration, the Imicus's ability to simultaneously control four Light Drones increases its hypothetical damage output in a necessary situation, or more commonly allows it to make good use of ECM Drones to potentially cause an assailant to lose their lock on the ship and allow it to escape aggression.
