Facility ID: Exo-Lab 71
Location: Everstar Grove
Facility Status: Active
-Biological sample return
Translation of Eldan signage and data records indicate this facility was designated Exo-Lab 71. Like all exo-Iab5 discovered thus far, it appears to be dedicated to a particular set of experiments; unlike many of those same exo-Iab5, this one is almost completely intact and functional - making it an even more noteworthy discovery than suspected.
Exo-Lab 71 is not a large facility, but it appears to be capable of drawing a tremendous amount of life energy from its immediate surroundings. Currently. the exo-lab is in a sort of standby mode, but it is nevertheless channeling power to the entity designated "Elderoot. "
There can be little doubt that Exo-Lab 71 was directly related to the enhancement of the Elderoot entity. Further investigation will be required if we are to co-opt this technology and use it in our ongoing search for a cure to the Contagion.
