Val-En was one of the biological offspring. After and attack in the 30th century just after having returned from a trip to the 20th century, the Starguard was reduced to one, Probe. Val-En's body but not his mind had survived and Probe's only hope of survival was transferring her mind to Val-En's body and vice versa. Just after having transferred her mind, the planet exploded leaving Probe with amnesia in Val-En's body .
