After lending its meager fighter squadrons to the defense of Hiigara against an Imperialist Taiidan raid, the Somtaaw mining vessel Kuun-lan combed the battlefield offering aid to survivors. Word arrived that a damaged Manaan destroyer, the Bushan-Re, had strayed from the battlefield into hostile Turanic Raider territory. Without a thought to their own profits, the Somtaaw dumped their ore canister to make space for engineering modules that would better allow them to cope with the hostile territory. The canister was ejected and destroyed, to prevent the structure and any ore it contained from falling into Raider hands.

"Our Workers aren't currently fitted for salvage and repair duty. We need to build an Engineering Module in order to prepare our work crews. We will have to jettison the upper ore canister to make room." - Kuun-Lan Tactical Officer

The ore canister offers no game benefit to the player; it merely looks cool.
