Earlier, before the Invasion, the checkpoint of the Olympus system was valuable only as a safe way to the repair shops of the Federation. Now it's just asteroids and debris. Therefore, you can meet anyone here: traders following their routes, as well as Cartel raiders or a random corporate patrol.
The only important objects in the system are communication stations. Their purpose is obvious — to quickly transmit a signal about equipment malfunctions, request assistance, report the appearance of aliens. All this, of course, does not suit either the Cartel or the rest of the rabble, who often raid trade caravans. Therefore, bandits often turn off communication stations in advance.
Corporations that lead their trade caravans through this sector often hire pilots both for guarding and clearing the territory. Assignments are usually simple, and mercenaries gladly take such contracts to earn some money.
