Unlocking the assignment
You can unlock this mission during your visit at The Flophouse where you get to while pursuing other objectives. While there, find a watchtower and climb up to its top. Once there, you must interact with the terminal, which results in adding the mission to your journal.
Travel to Paradise
You must simply go back to Paradise, that is the place where you start the adventure on this planet.
Find Annea's office
Now you must find Annea's office. Follow the navpoint, run up the stairs and approach the closed door in order to launch a conversation.
Scan the area for a network console
After getting near Annea's office, which is currently closed, you will get the objective to find a network console. You can find it using the scanner. Activate it while still at the closed door and then track the path marked by the yellow ray. The network console is by a steel catwalk covered by boxes - you can see it in the picture above.
Hack the network console to get to Annea's office
Now you must hack the network console which you have just found.
Enter Annea's office
Once you have hacked the network console the door to Annea's office is now open. Go back there and enter the room, which activates next objective.
Search for information on the water supply location
As soon as you get into Annea's office you receive another objective - you must find the location of a water supply. In order to do this you must simply examine the Datapad lying in the corner of the room. Interact with this in order to push the mission forward.
Travel to the water supply
Head toward the navpoint - you will find it in the north-west corner of the map. Eliminate a small group of enemies roaming about the area, and then run through the entrance indicated by the navpoint in order to get inside the room.
Scan the area for information
The cave you are in right now may seem confusing. However, you have nothing to worry about - you just need to walk on forward, following the navpoint on the screen in order to reach your destination. Once you get close to the water, activate the scanner and scan the object there. This is going to launch a cut-scene. The dialogue options you select during the conversation do not really matter - they only impact which merchant you will find in Paradise. Conduct the conversation any way you like. If you do not agree to keep the secret, a fight starts. However, there are only a couple of enemies here, so the fight should take just a couple of seconds.
Meet Nexus officials in Paradise
After that you must head back to Paradise and talk to Nexus station officials there. Doing so will conclude the mission.
Rewards: XP, Andromeda Viability Points.
