Speak to Professor Herik anytime after Pathfinder Ryder speaks to him during Task: Getting to Know the Nexus, accept his request for help. To speak to Professor Herik after acquiring the Tempest, he can be found in the Tech Lab of the Nexus Docking Bay.
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 (0/10) Edit
Ryder must locate and scan ten of the following thirteen unique wildlife samples to complete this task. Note: Ryder receives +50 for each sample scanned for a total of +650 (for all thirteen samples).
Return To Professor Herik Edit
Return to Professor Herik on the Nexus to complete the mission.
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).
