Please note: This article needs improvement, if you come across this signature please take a moment to more fully document the ships and structures found here.
The Serpentis Prison Camp is a Cosmic Signature of the DED Complex (rated 8/10) type, occupied by the Serpentis pirate faction. It can be found via exploration by probing in Nullsec systems. For location details see Pirate Faction Occupancy Chart.

The site consists of a volume of space with an acceleration gate and contains various structures and their defending pirates. Using the gate allows access to other areas within the site. When attacked, the defenders may send multiple waves of reinforcements. Each group's appearance is triggered by the destruction of members of the previous group. The names and amount of ships listed may vary slightly, but will always be of Battleship class or smaller.

This site's acceleration gate allows only Battleship class ships or lower and their Tech 2 equivalents to enter the site.

You may receive this site as an escalation from a Serpentis Hub, with the following message:

"Onboard communication systems have picked up a Serpentis signal imbedded in a local entertainment broadcast. A Serpentis prison camp is located in a nearby system.

Backtracing signal.

Location found. Coordinates uploaded to the Expedition panel. "

Warp in message:

"The Serpentis Corporation has long been the principal source for boosters and other designer drugs traded in open space. One of the keys to their continued success is a strict internal policy of monitoring and controlling the drug use of their own employees. Members of Serpentis Corp deemed too addicted to their own products are sent to Serpentis prison facilities. Here the inmates are subjected to extreme detoxing methods, from complete isolation to gene-alteration procedures.

Rumors persist of Serpentis using the more “creative” of their inmates in extreme R and D programs, essentially working them to death in pursuit of better starship modules.

The Serpentis Prisoner Isolation Facility's repair is not connected to its Torpedo strike; as such, its repair cannot be stopped by flying out of missile range, as can be done with similar facilities.
The Serpentis Prisoner Isolation Facility took 10 minutes to destroy with 1,500 DPS.

Completion Message:

"Objective Completed: Administration facility destroyed. With any luck, we will find advanced Serpentis tech in the wreckage.
Oh, and by the way, Serpentis booster production in this constellation will be slowed severely with these inmates still out of commission. So that's good. I guess."
