"The bonus from the NRI would be enough to fund the expedition to Stovax. But if we wait until Penga Rift arrives, we'll have to share the bonus. We might even end up being cut out completely."
―Kroddok Stopa about the expedition to Stovax[src]

Stovax was a planet located in the Core Worlds. The Obroan Institute and Kroddok Stopa had intentions of excavating.
