The Torumekian Armored Corvette encountered the weaponized miasma 150 leagues from the Sea of Corruption. Torumekian Shohki Masks were not strong enough to keep it out. This miasma even killed the insects .
The professors predict that it would only make the land it was used on unusable for 10 years (or so). They transport the miasma spores infertile and cryogenically frozen in "unbreakable" containers .

One of the frozen spores starts growing in a tank .
