RE: Sleeper Observations, Protocol Dark (Project Silent Dream)
...Clearly there is more here. What I can deduce from the Mirror, and the previous evidence stated by Nikilaiki, is that it is possible that the Mirrors act as the name implies; database mirrors. Expanding on that, it's possible that the Sleeper drones themselves construct the sites, expand them, and from the availability of raw materials, a function for the site is determined. Then, all that is needed is downloaded from the Mirror.
This would be consistent with the "emergent" design of the Sleeper drones themselves. It allows for flexibility and explains the need for the Mirror sites.
Nikilaiki's observations on the Ani constellation rings has me thinking though. Is it possible that these were used as primitive stargates? The Seyllin incident puts into focus a possible reason for the wormhole openings, but not necessarily in the way you think, [REDACTED]. Think about it: I've seen it here in [LOCATION WITHHELD]. A drone similar to the Sleeper drones, using a spatial anomaly for transit. Just like the Rogue Drones Nikilaiki observed in Fed space, just like the ones you reported seeing in Nullsec.
The Ani constellation though, I think that's the kicker. The automated drones there, the... I can't remember their ID and I don't have my notes with me, but if they are of Sleeper origin then I would guess that there is a connection here. Perhaps these drones are the prototypes for the Sleeper drones we see in wormhole systems, perhaps these are something unrelated that was used as the basis for them. The connections between Sleepers and Rogue Drones are becoming more apparent, boss. I'm not saying that one is based on the other. What I'm saying is that there's a possibility that the technology behind them is shared. That could either be from similar lines of research, or being based on an even older set of technologies.
