It used unstable [[metreon]] [[isotope]]s to create a devastating explosion. The resulting [[radiation poisoning]] killed those who were not destroyed by the initial blast. Jetrel claimed that this poisoning was unforseen. Furthermore, sufficient exposure to metreons resulted in the deadly [[disease]] [[metremia]].

The flash was visible from nearby [[Talax]], where observers subsequently lost sight of Rinax due to the metreon cloud enveloping the moon. As of [[2371]], this cloud still persisted. More than a quarter of a million people were vaporized, and thousands of others eaten away by Metreon poisoning. Over all, more than 300,000 people died. The aftermath was described as such:
