Today the Excalibur traveled to the testing site, a planet inhabited by a sentient race and occupied by the Ukesh. Rather than complete the test on this planet, Rosnoyya sent a small strike force to the planet’s surface. They uncovered, and stopped, an Ukesh mining operation, traumatically injuring Alex in the process. Currently Alex and Mina are resting in the medical bay aboard the Excalibur and Dmitri is working on his new robotic exoskeleton. The crew is looking for a more ethical practice ground.
