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

Acquisition Edit

Speak to Professor Herik anytime after Pathfinder Ryder speaks to him during Task: Getting to Know the Nexus and accept his request for help. To speak to Professor Herik after acquiring the Tempest, go to the Tech Lab of the Nexus Docking Bay.

Walkthrough Edit

Access The Terminal Edit

After accepting the mission 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.

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.

Scan Andromeda Wildlife (0/10) Edit

Ryder must locate and scan ten of the following thirteen unique wildlife samples to complete this mission. Note: Ryder receives +50 Rd icon heleus orange for each sample scanned for a total of +650 Rd icon heleus orange (for all thirteen samples).

Speak With Professor Herik Edit

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

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

Note: Wildlife does not need to be alive to be scanned, but must have a corpse left behind; as some creatures disintegrate upon death, it can be a challenge to scan some wildlife if Ryder's squadmates attack on sight. It might be advisable to direct Ryder's team away from the creature Ryder is trying to scan.

Note: The three remaining wildlife samples scanned after the completion of the mission will still provide research data (RD).
