Krogan betrayal
By all accounts, William Spender is a difficult man. But there is reason to suspect that the Assistant Director of Colonial Affairs is actively working to undermine the krogan. Drack has asked you to investigate Spender's activities.

Acquisition Edit

Speak to Drack after he joins Ryder's crew following A Better Beginning. Ask him about the Nexus uprising to learn about his belief that Spender was partly responsible for the event.

Walkthrough Edit

Find Spender on the Nexus Edit

When Ryder first arrives back on the Nexus after obtaining Drack as a squad member, you may overhear a conversation between Spender and a salarian technician named Del Jasin. Spender berates the salarian for incompetence and making frivolous requests for parts to fix the air filtration system on the Nexus. After Spender leaves, Ryder can ask her if Spender is always such an abusive supervisor which she affirms. Del suggests that Ryder undermine Spender's reputation with the Nexus leadership in order to get him removed.

Talk to Kesh Edit

Find Kesh in her office; she'll reveal that Spender has gained the favor of the Nexus leadership but she believes he might be communicating with the exiles. She suggests speaking with Kandros to obtain the proof of his betrayal.

Speak with Kandros Edit

Speak to Kandros and let him know you're investigating a possible link between Spender and the Nexus uprising. He'll note that there were some discrepancies but that there hasn't been time to dig deeper to find answers. He'll give you access to the video archives.

Review Nexus security footage Edit

Unfortunately the security footage is corrupted and there isn't anything definitive about Spender's actions that prove he is guilty.

Confront Spender Edit

Speak to Spender, he denies any wrongdoing and warns Ryder off further investigating. At this point the mission is put on hold until Ryder can locate the planet mentioned in the security footage (+530XP).

ON HOLD: Locatee the planet mentioned in security footage Edit

When it's located the next objective becomes active.

Talk to SAM on the Tempest Edit

SAM has discovere mored about Spender and gives a navpoint for further investigation.

Investigate Spender's Kadara connection Edit

Anti-vehicle mines are detected when approachingg the navpoint (shooting them won't detonate them). Safest to prroceed on foot. The outlaws detects it's the Pathfinder that is coming and believes that Spender must have blabbed. Defeat them.

Search the hideout for cluesEdit

On a data pad is a message from Aroane to Spender complaining bout that they only got half of the supplies. Aroane tell Spender to use the scrambler. So Spender have been sneaking Nexus goods to the exiles. SAM concludes that the scrambler can explain the destroyed files on the Nuxes' security system..

You recieve 29 AVP and +2% Kadara viability.

Search for a scrambler in Spender's roomEdit

SAM can't "see" the room. The logs in the room reveals how Spender have been undermining the Nexus' activities. There also are sjupllies that have been reported missing.

SAM can't analyze the scrambler so better let a comms expert look att it.

Talk to the Comms OfficerEdit

He is standing next to Addison in Operations on the Nexus. During the conversation you can chose whether you shall be open or secretive with what you know.

It's a scrambler for sure, and those things are illegal, because they can hack through any security.

Ryder asks the Comm Officer to get some solid evidence for who has been using it. He'll let Ryder know when he has found something (this will happen in the follow-up mission)

Ryder get notified about a new email and the next objective becomes active. The email is about the follow-up mission, and there is no need to read or acknowledge it.

Speak to Drack on the TempestEdit

Sometthing important have been stolen from a krogan outpost. When the conversation i over, the mission completes, and the follow-up mission Nakmor Drack: A Future for our People starts.
