Is there some trick to doing this illegal black box operation?

  • I got an illegal black box operation mission. The degraded emissions that my FSS scan identified as the mission target said that it was threat level 2. When I got there 4 ships came out of hyperspace and killed me before I could get my weapons out. I'm in an ASP explorer. It's not fully upgraded yet which I'm sure had something to do with it. My shield gen is a B and my hull is what came with the ship. But still they killed me so god damned fast I can't imagine a fully upgraded aspx would have made a difference. This mission was for 500k credits. There must be some trick to it. Am I supposed to use silent running and sneak the black boxes? It wasn't a wing mission. Am I supposed to bring friends anyway?
