Stardate 1009.18 ChaHom System Asteroid Belt
Scans of the asteroid belt show a large concentration of an extremely volatile substance known as Tylium. Tylium is used in some primitive cultures for propulsion, but can be used on our warships for planetary bombardment. I am ordering the construction ships and mobile shipyard to establish an refining outpost in the field to exploit this resource. As with the waHom system, I will arrange for a series of convoys and escorts to bring Tylium back to the Empire. Obviously we don't yet understand the exact nature of the conflict that took place here more than a thousand years ago, but if the combatants were using Tylium, it would have been a glorious battle indeed.
