Talk to Drack
You can unlock the quest once Nakmor Drack has joined the party (at the end of A Better Beginning). Once you're back on the Tempest, find Drack and talk to him. He'll ask you to take a look at anti-Krogan activities of William Spender, an inhabitant of Nexus.
Find Spender on the Nexus
Proceed to Nexus: Docking Bay and find Spender, who should be not far from the Tempest's landing site. Your target will be busy interrogating Del Jasin, a frightened Salarian. Once Spender leaves the area, talk with Jasin and offer your help.
Talk with Nakmor Kesh
Use the rail and travel to Nexus: Operations Center to meet up with Nakmor Kesh. He'll back you up, but first you'll need to get the security footage that will indict Spender.
Talk with Kandros to get access to the footage
Proceed to the security precinct to find Tiran Kandros. This conversation will be short - you'll receive access to the security footage.
Use the computer to check the recording
The surveillance station is right next to Kandros. Use the computer to learn that the recording has been damaged - fortunately, we've learned that the action was performed by someone from the planet Kadara.
Confront Spender following the damaged footage
Spender can be found on the higher floor of the operations center. The conversation will be cut short, making you unable to get ahead with the case.
Find the planet mentioned by the security system
The quest can be followed upon once you've managed to visit Kadara, which is currently an unavailable destination. For now, you'll need to proceed with the main story until you've received the ability to travel to the planet. You must complete A Trail of Hope quest and unlock the next main one - Hunting the Archon. Finally, you are able to travel to Govorkam, the star system that is home to Kadara.
Talk with SAM
Once you've reached your destination, leave the galaxy map and proceed to the captain's quarters to talk with SAM. You'll receive additional details of your mission.
Investigate Spender's contact on Kadara
You must land on planet Kadara. Travel to the wilderness and go to the place, marked by the game, in the south-west part. During your trip you receive a warning about a mine field so you should leave Nomad and travel on foot.
Defeat the exiles
The area is overrun by exiles that you must defeat. Use big rocks to avoid their fire when you are on your way to the buildings. You should also take into account that you can face reinforcements.
Search the hideout in order to find tracks
Enter the main room of the hideout and find the datapad with a message. You receive Andromeda Viability Points and you learn that you must return on Nexus.
Search Spender's room and find the scrambler
Go back on Nexus and go on the upper level of Nexus: Docking Bay (Common Area). There are a few flats here, one of them belongs to Spender. Break into the apartment. In Spender's flat you can find:
- three datapads
- Initative Fighter Model
- three audiologs (one of them requires a confirmation that you want to break into the system)
- terminal with a few messages
- supply chest
- interactive bookshelf
The most important thing to find is the scrambler which is hidden behind the big screen presented in the picture. Turn the camera so you can see it.
Speak with Communications officer
Use the tram and travel to Nexus: Operations Center. Communications officer can be found on the highest level of this area. You can reveal that the scrambler was in Spender's flat or save that information for yourself (this choice has no impact on the quest's ending).
Speak with Drack on Tempest
Return to the Tempest and speak with Drack. Thanks to that you unlock a new Loyalty Mission called Nakmor Drack: A future for Our People.
Rewards for finishing the quest: XP, Andromeda Initiative Points, a new Loyalty Mission Nakmor Drack: A Future for Our People unlocked.
