Shortly after entering the Kathol Rift, the FarStar discovers that it's food supplies are spoiling. The cause is the mutation of a bacteria common to the Kathol Outback - it is normally harmless, but mutates upon contact with the energy in the Rift.
Stopping at the planet Q'Maere, they encounter a scientific outpost run by Doctor Langstyn Kraay. However, the research facility is actually a prison facility for Moff Kentor Sarne, and the FarStar's landing party is taken hostage.
With the help of the prisoners in the facility, the FarStar crew engineers a prison riot, taking control of the facility. They secure an antidote to the bacteria mutation, and restock the FarStar's food supplies to continue the hunt for Sarne.
