Task

Professor Herik is working on a comparative wildlife conservation effort. Travel the cluster and take scans of any unknown wildlife.

AcquisitionEdit

Speak to Professor Herik anytime after you speak to him during Task: Getting to Know the Nexus, accept his request for help. If you want to speak to him after acquiring the Tempest, he can be found in the Tech Lab of the Nexus Docking Bay.

WalkthroughEdit

Access the Terminal Edit

After accepting the task from Herik, access the nearby terminal to read about the efforts to catalog the organisms that live in the galaxy before either Milky Way or Scourge interference wipes out the native species.

Scan Andromeda Wildlife Edit

Ryder must locate and scan ten of the following thirteen unique wildlife samples to complete this task.

Creature Eos Havarl Voeld Kadara Elaaden
Spitbug
Kaerkyn
Shemrys
Challyrion
Eiroch
Ancient Eiroch
Taurg
Drall
Galorn

Return to Professor Herik on the Nexus to complete the quest.

Note: Wildlife scanned while on Habitat 7 during Planetside do not count towards the 10 unique scans required.

TerminalEdit

Final Proposal: Prof. N. Herik et al

...since we are, by definition, an invasive species in Andromeda. Our inevitable footprint must be laid carefully, and we must preserve anything we replace.

The Heleus Cluster presents an unexpected challenge. We arrived with seed archives and DNA banks to ensure preservation of the biodiversity of the Milky Way. But this cluster is scarred by the Scourge, and its unique flora and fauna are threatened by its turbulence. That, too, requires conservation.
