I'm getting started in exploring/probes as well.  The Imicus is attractive because of the Astrometrics bonus and enough CPU to actually fit a probe launcher.  Unfortunately from what I've read when you find a archeology/hacking site, there are usually either rats present, or rats that spawn when you try to access a container.  Because the imicus probably can't effectively probe and fight (and rats bigger than 1 or 2 frigs would be a problem anyway), the strategy seems to be a) find the site with your scout ship, b) bookmark it, c) go swap to a combat ship fitted with codebreaker/analyzer to kill rats and loot the site.

Your tech2 drones may be enough for the combat you'll encounter... just not sure.  Dropping the looting gear would also allow you to fit a cloaking device, however.  Nice for passing the scan times more safely in lowsec (can be very long).

If you're using a core probe launcher, you can fit a cloak without the CPU upgrade. In 0.8 space, my tech 1 drones have been able to handle the rats, albeit slowly. My new plan is to carry combat modules (75mm railguns, adaptive nano plating) in the cargo bay and just switch my fitting in a nearby station depending on the site. This way, I would have a salvager, analyzer, and codebreaker on hand. Sites in lower security space might still need a bigger ship to clear out, idk.
