They wanted to bring glory to the British Empire by subjugating the Drellerans and were able to do so after learning the secrets of interstellar travel and the long life required to survive it.
After the Drellerans infected the humans with a virus, they travelled to Space Dock Nerva in the Aeolus. Henry McMullan went ahead in a craft the separated from the larger and boarded. The Aeolus followed, bringing Corrigan to the space station. (AUDIO: Destination: Nerva)
