Silent Echo is a small outpost located in an unknown asteroid field near Citadel-space. The outpost acts as an espionage site for Warlord, constantly leaking any information it can to his private network. Silent Echo is small because it is operated completely by an AI, the super-intelligent ESI. Silent Echo is able to intercept transmissions, access extranet sites, and scan the battle networks of hostile forces. For that reason, Warlord is capable of always staying a step ahead of the opposition.
