The alien corpses, with their suits and dissected vehicle, are put in vacuum storage, and the lab continues its attempts to recreate the beast. It will be a few days until any tangible results can be observed, as this is a longterm research project. However, the earlier the start, the better.
You can have the Analyzers poke at the aliens and their equipment in the meantime, but their methods won't yield nearly as much information as a lab.
Outside, night begins to fall. The alien mothership continues its fruitless radio-bombardment of your ship. Then, after several hours, it begins sailing away.
Your Analyzers report that the meteorological signs are increasing. Weather event imminent.
Two of your Strainer units have been produced. These units are unpowered, and therefore must be connected to the ship's hull in order to function. When active, they will begin straining Raw Materials out of the surrounding water.
