The transport ship was heavily damaged by one of these gravitic mines. The last message received from the Denver said they were attempting to crash land on one of the planets in the Mericor system. The USS Enterprise-D responded to the distress call and rescued survivors.
Removed because the Mericor system was not specifically stated to be in the Beloti sector. We are informed in the episode and in the script that the ship was en route to the sector when it struck the mine.--Memphis77 (talk) 11:56, September 11, 2016 (UTC)
