I don't know where the original post is but I sent this question off about 6 months ago and finally got a reply. I'm adding it here and to the uFAQ.
We had a weird situation last time we played. The Admiral selected Mining Asteroid. We then realized that the person looking through the crisis deck could view all buried crisis cards. Who gets to do this? The Admiral or the Current Player? Also this seems to be against the spirit of the game. Was this intended?

Thanks for the question and sorry for the delay in response. When the Mining Asteroid Destination card is drawn, the current player should look through the discard pile first and then the Crisis deck. Hope this helps!
