Mining facility’s entry door is found to be damaged from some sort of external impact and must be cut off. George Noble, Richard Renaud, and Stesh “Manny” Manners cut open the door and investigate the interior of the miner. The miner’s main computer is found to be missing as is most of the electronics in the area. SNOT, operated by Captain Ronald Donahue finds a small circular hole cut out from the inside of the miner containing a dead body. The compartments with the dead body have been sealed off from the rest of the mining facility. The boarding party is recalled to analyze the damaged door and report a possible murder on the facility.
Authorities from Zarahemla thank the crew for the report and ask them to investigate the black box and secondary computer for potential logs or footage of the murder and sabotage. A second boarding of the station reveals the victim was stabbed through the heart from behind through his air tank and that the black box and secondary computer are both missing. Mormon officials alert the crew that they have been in contact with federal officials who ask that the crime scene not be further tampered with. The crew transmit their footage and data to the proper authorities after making hard backups and then set a course for the nearest colony where coffee is not illegal.
