In 2269, after the destruction of the Lovell, Xav and many of the crew were reassigned to Starbase 11. Later that year, he agreed to serve a temporary transfer aboard the USS Aephas, a Miranda-class science vessel, as Chief Science Officer under Commander Mahmud al-Khaled, while their detachment from the Corps of Engineers awaited permanent reassignment to a new vessel.
