The YIC, or Yomghua Intelligence Corporation, forwarded Intel regarding a team of Yvlekesh scientists. The report stated the science team infiltrated a lab on asteroid X-7, a large rock in the Relshin system, which was still considered unsanctioned territory, but the Lemylations claimed legal rights in the area. Naturally, they were the first to lend the Yvlekesh support. Unfortunately, they had been pinned down by automated defenses.
It was unclear, but according to the Intel as relayed by the Yomghua, the Yvlekesh believed the lab in question to be an old Reptilian lab, not a Lemylation lab, so they sought Human assistance rather than Lemylation. The report included information on all of the automated securities in place. Since The Phoenix crew commissioned for the extraction of both parties was unavailable—her crew piloted by Day and under the command of O’Hara—Ambassador Lay established communications with Lemylatia’s Yerg, Creft, to inform him of the Phoenix’s inability to respond. He then suggested Commander Fitzpatrick and Mister Hawkins, Captain of the Jersey Gold. Upon agreement, the following coordinates were sent to the ship’s onboard computer; 98327492-OI8.
