Meet With Dunn On Hyperion's Habitation Deck Edit
Captain Dunn contacts Pathfinder Ryder over the comm immediately upon arrival on Nexus asking for a meeting on a matter she doesn't want to discuss on open channels. (The comm message is a second reminder to check email).
Speaking with Dunn reveals that one of Dr. Harry Carlyle's medtechs has smuggled a relative on board the Nexus and recently awakened the person from cryo stasis. The relative is carrier of a rare contagious disease, that hasn't yet come into the later stages where the disease becomes viral.
Dunn wants to keep the matter secret to avoid a public panic, and has not informed Director Jarun Tann or anyone else. She asks Ryder to handle the problem discreetly. Ryder should speak with Dr. Harry for more information.
Ryder receives +530 XP when the conversation is over.
Speak With Harry In The Cryo Bay Edit
The disease TH-314 has three stages, is deadly, and highly contagious in its final stage. TH-314 is airborne and jumps between species. There is no cure. If Ruth manages to get off the Nexus, the situation will be very bad and she might infect the angaran people.
Dr. Harry gives SAM access to files concerning the matter of Ruth Bekker.
Speak With An Immigration Officer In The Docking Area Edit
Search For Ruth Bekker's Previous Location Edit
SAM can track Ruth's movements using her biological signature. SAM will let Ryder know when Ryder is on the right track. Ryder can use the scanner to find an orange humanoid figure and begin tracking Ruth's movements.
- Ruth was using a nearby terminal searching for her nephew.
- Next she was trying identify a plant type, reasons unknown.
- She has been walking near the Vehicle Merchant.
- She was also trying to get access the tram, but access was denied.
- Another spot is at the entrance to Vortex Lounge.
- The final location is inside Vortex, where she received a message from the Immigration Officer that her access restriction has been cleared.
Gather Information At The Vortex In the Nexus Commons Edit
Ryder receives +270 XP after speaking with Lator.
Speak With Teron In Nexus Ops Edit
Teron Aminus is working at a large console. Teron lets Ryder know that Ruth was here not long ago. Ruth didn't look so well and was acting strangely. Ruth asked for her nephew, talked about the shuttles, and ran off in the middle of a sentence. It seems Ruth has entered the stage 2 paranoia phase of the disease.
Ryder receives +270 XP after speaking with Teron.
Dr. Carlyle calls on the Comm and lets Ryder know that Ruth has attacked a dockworker and stolen a shuttle. The risk for a pandemic has increased because Ruth now is out there somewhere.
Investigate The Docking Bay Edit
Dockworker Samuel Francoeur is sitting on a bench recovering from an attack. Samuel managed to damage the hull of the shuttle during the theft. Luckily the damaged shuttle will leave a radiation trail that can be followed.
Ryder receives +270 XP after speaking with Samuel.
Investigate The Stolen Shuttle's Trail Edit
Scanning the trail reveals that the hull's integrity is getting increasingly worse. In the fourth system that Ryder scans, indications are that shuttle destruction is imminent. The final scanned trail indicates that the shuttle is heading for a landing on Kadara.
Find The Shuttle On Kadara Edit
Investigate The Crash Site Edit
The flight recorder from the shuttle is located on the ground. Ruth was aware that she was in stage 3 of the disease and was going to self-destruct the shuttle. Before she was able to detonate the shuttle though, someone kidnapped her. Now there is a high risk the disease will spread.
Track Ruth Bekker Edit
Using the scanner to detect angaran footprints lead away from the crash site. Follow them to a nearby building.
Investigate The Building Edit
Inside the building are Roekaar and a fight is inevitable.
Defeat The Roekaar Edit
Unlock The Door Edit
The door on the top floor is locked. Use the console on the bottom floor to unlock it.
On the datapads in the room, Ryder can learn about the Roekaar's hideous plans.
In the same room as the console, there is a stasis pod that is taken apart. Scanning the pod indicates the pod can be reassembled to working order. Ryder suggests the pod can be used to bring Ruth Bekker back to the Nexus.
Scanning the Medical Database Terminal gives some hopeful news. It turns out that the angara are immune to the TH-314 disease. Ryder decides to tell Dr. Harry about this - maybe it will be possible to create a cure with this information.
There are two lootable containers in the room.
Confront The Roekaar Leader Edit
Upstairs, the door is now unlocked. The Roekaar leader holds Ruth hostage. Ryder will have to deal with the situation.
If Ryder refuses to let the Roekaar leader go, both Ruth and the Roekaar Leader will be killed. This will ensure that the virus sample is secured. If Ryder lets the Roekaar leader go with a sample of the virus, Ruth will be saved. SAM will conclude that the sample is degraded beyond use.
The mission then ends after Ryder has made a decision.
There is a lootable container and a datapad in the room.
Note: There is no indication after the mission that Dr. Harry has been informed about the angaran immunity or from Captain Dunn on the successful resolution of the problem.
