On 13 June, another spacecraft, piloted by alien ambassador Seruba Velak, also crash landed in the vicinity of Roswell. She was taken prisoner by the US government and held in captivity in Area 51 for the next eleven years until being freed by the Tenth Doctor and her husband Rivesh Mantilax in 1958. (TV: Dreamland)

The technology from one of the above crashes ended up in the hands of Henry van Statten decades later. He used it to develop broadband internet. (TV: Dalek)
