This is the third assignment to stem from the UNC: Missing Marines assignment tree. After finding Admiral Kahoku's body in a containment facility on Binthu, you will learn the location of Cerberus' main base of operations. It is located on the planet Nepheron in the Columbia system of the Voyager cluster.
Walkthrough EditCerberus Snipers and Cerberus Anti-Tank infantry. Once all the guards have been defeated, go inside the underground facility.
Go down the corridor and into the first room. There is an upgrade kit in the room. When you're done, go down the corridor into the main room. The main room contains more Cerberus troops in the form of five Cerberus Commandos and three Cerberus Snipers. Use the limited cover near the entrance to take out the troopers. The snipers have a habit of staying at the other end of the room, behind cover, and rarely stick their heads out. Once all the Cerberus forces fall head to the other end of the room and down the hallway to the rooms at the back.
“You cautiously press a few buttons, and an alarm chimes — the optical database is flashing itself! Quickly, you copy as many files as you can to your hardsuit's internal computer. Its memory wiped, the computer shuts down. The files are sure to be encrypted, but you've got time to crack them.”
The Shadow Broker Edit
The next time you access the Galaxy Map, you'll receive a transmission from a Shadow Broker agent asking for the files you found in the base. Apparently Kahoku promised the Shadow Broker these files, in return for getting information on how to find Cerberus. You can transmit them to him in exchange for credits and nine Renegade points, or refuse for eight Paragon points — though the agent will warn you that the Shadow Broker will not forget this the next time Shepard needs help.
Mass Effect 2 Consequences Edit
If Commander Shepard completes these Cerberus-related assignments, in Mass Effect 2, Miranda Lawson claims the bases were part of Cerberus' military division. Tali'Zorah vas Neema will comment that Cerberus thought that enslaving Thorian creepers and rachni was a good idea upon recruitment. These events will also be referenced in a news feed on the Citadel; an investigation is being conducted into Cerberus activities that may connect with Kahoku's death, possibly with the added testimony of Corporal Toombs and Doctor Wayne.
- Hades' Dogs clearly links to the Cerberus organization, since Cerberus was literally Hades' three-headed dog in Greek mythology. It may also be a pun on "Devil Dogs", a nickname adopted by US Marines.
