Spawned by the Nezerian Regius Exterminatore, a very deadly Nezerian capable of destroying players in seconds from it's potent sticky bombs.
Use energy weapons such as plasma or flame thrower to quickly kill them off. Using Void Tentacles would benefit as it would reduce the Praetorian's resist allowing it to die quicker. When it shoots the sticky bombs and they attach to your ship, do not harden your shields until after 6 seconds or else you will be disintegrated. Disabling it's shield regeneration is also a good option as it doesn't allow it to regenerate any shield.
After a certain amount of time it is spawned from the Nezerian Regius Exterminatore

if you kill all of them except the last one,
then they will not spawn anymore, so long as you keep leading that last one away while using a DOT on it.
