During regular maintenance it was discovered that the midnight star had some hefty repairs to do that would cost the crew quite a bundle. Opus, unable to fund the repairs himself, set the crew to work for a local businessman named Leo Sobek. Sobek himself got the crew a job for a mysterious person by the identity of Ansom. The crew was set to find out the status of a mining operation in a mountain valley that had not checked in.
The trip there was fraught with only minor peril, in the form of local wildlife and strong winds. Beckett managed to land the brick they were lent with damage to one of the thrusters. The crew set out at once to find the missing miners. Arriving at their intended destination, they found no miners, but no bodies either, and a transmitter with no core.
