The crew of the G.F.S. Daedalus discovered this resource and was assigned to collect samples of it, via Recovery Pods, for study. However, Samus Aran, on recon for the Galactic Federation, discovered that the Space Pirates were planning to attack the Daedalus. Her crew evacuated the ship before it was shot down, but was forced to leave the Pods behind. The Federation Force later recovers the Pods during M08: Dustoff, but not without facing heavy Pirate resistance.
General Alex Miles later reports the findings of the Federation research team, which explain why the Pirates were so determined to keep them from recovering the Liquid Resource. When combined with minerals, also from Excelcion, recovered by the Federation Force during M15: Mother Lode, the pair produces a massive amount of energy. This was used to power the Doomseye, a massive Pirate battleship they intended to use to attack Galactic Federation Headquarters.
