Speak with Dr. Aridana after speaking with Professor Herik in Task: Getting to Know the Nexus, use either dialogue option to accept the mission. If you want to speak to her after acquiring the Tempest, she can be found in the Tech Lab of the Nexus Docking Bay.
Note: After you have acquired this mission speak to her again to acquire Task: The Model of the Spheres.
This can only be completed once the Tempest has left the Nexus. Using the galaxy map, navigate to the Eriksson system and activate the scanner. An anomaly will alert Ryder to a destroyed shuttle located in a Scourge cloud. All seven of Dr. Aridana's crew that were aboard were killed instantly when a Scourge flare wiped out all internal systems. Scan the wreckage to receive 50 . The mission is completed automatically after scanning.
Ryder found the missing scientist's vessels, unfortunately that which was feared had come to pass. While investigating the Scourge, the shuttle the scientists were traveling in was severely damaged by an electrical surge caused by the energy cloud. All aboard were killed instantly.
