- "If we do this… our best access point is the laser drill shaft where the isotope-5 was originally discovered. The shaft runs kilometers under a mining station, and it's been abandoned—so probably treacherous, but less chance of Hutt interference."
- ―Katha Niar
The abandoned mining mesa was the site of a mine on the planet of Makeb. It was here that isotope-5 was first discovered by Solida Hesk's mining corporation, but the mesa was abandoned due to safety concerns and was overrun by native wildlife.
