A seven-member science team studying the Scourge has been found dead. Scourge flares disabled life-support systems aboard the Eudoxus, leaving it adrift in space. Authorities confirmed all aboard the shuttle died instantly. "The responsibility for this tragedy rests with me," said Nexus head of astrophysics Dr. Leynomi Aridana. "I shall do all I can to support the families and loved ones of those we have lost."
