The E-34 Elephant Drilling Rig is a drilling rig of unknown proportions. The E-34 Elephant Drilling Rig was known to leave symmetrical 45 degree scarring and chemical weathering on walls when operating.


In the 2290s, the Sovereign Colonies used one of these drilling rigs during their Marker-related operations on Aegis VII.[1] By 2508, the E-34 Elephant Drilling Rig had been out of operation for over 150 years, with examples of the machine only seen in books. The distinctive scarring of the E-34's drag lines were found by the personnel of the illegal CEC colony during their mining of the planet, just prior to discovering Marker 3A.[2]
