The Sleepers race is one of the four known ancient races which are Sleepers, Takmahl, Talocan and Yan Jung.

The Sleepers are, as the other ancient races, descendants of humans and populated New Eden thousands of years ago before they vanished. These days the only remains of them in New Eden are ruins and strange artifacts.

Some of those ruins can be found around Minmatar space these days.

The technology of the Sleepers is said to be comparable to Tech 2 level in some areas, in some other areas they had much more advanced knowledge. From those few known artifacts it was also deduced that the Sleepers were masters of virtual reality, neural interfacing and cryotechnology.

The spring expansion 2009 "Apocrypha" introduced Sleepers as inhabitants of the newly introduced Wormhole space, though at this point all interactions with them appear to be with drones rather than manned vehicles, leaving the ultimate fate of the race unknown.

Known Sleeper Drones

Entity Relative Size Description Image
Emergent Defender Frigate The pristine condition of this Sleeper drone’s armor suggests it has only recently been activated, perhaps even newly-manufactured. Even though it appears to be a relative newcomer to the swarm, there is little questioning that it bears the same deadly technology as its more elderly and experienced kin.

Emergent Watchman
Awakened Defender Cruiser The design of this Sleeper drone echoes what is believed to be the very earliest Sleeper Starships, suggesting it was perhaps constructed during that period too. Contrasting with its possible age is the unspoiled condition of its armor, suggesting that if it is indeed as ancient as its designers, it has only very recently been put into service.

Awakened Watchman
Argos Sentry Turret These fearsome sentry towers have remained the faithful and dangerous guardians of their sleeper masters, even after countless years of constant duty. As unpredictable as they are powerful, the towers have been expertly designed to provide lasting vigilance with an unquestioning, mechanical loyalty. The weapons systems on board are frighteningly precise and devastating upon impact.

Sleepers Combat and You

Damage Types

Sleepers do omni damage. Missiles do two types and their lasers do the other two types. This means you will need to set up your ship for balanced resists.

Tentative Sleeper resists: Armor is 70/70/70/70 with Structure being 0/0/0/0.

Tactics

Class 1 and 2 encounters are generally considered to be soloable. Class 3 is a maybe soloable situation. Class 5 and 6 can be solo'd only if you use a Capital Ship (Carrier OR a Dreadnought) but be prepared to sweat bullets as a class 5 can crack a carrier and eat drones severely, and if you try to solo a class 6 in anything sub-capital you might as well be fighting the Spanish armada with wet cornflakes.
