Balancing the Books 4 of 10

Balancing the Books 4 of 10 - Various

Mission Description

We've discovered some new information from that black box you managed to salvage. The evidence suggests that the Guristas are solely responsible for the attack on the transport. It seems they've built a surveillance facility nearby, and they are using it to intercept shipping information and then launch attacks on our most vulnerable convoys.

We need you to handle this, player name. First, you need to take out that outpost of theirs and any Guristas vessels defending it. Once the area is clear, you need to uncover any plans for future attacks. I'm asking you not only because I think you can handle the combat, but also because I figure you would benefit from some hands-on training in the art of hacking.

Fit this Civilian Data Analyzer to your ship and use it on any data storage devices you can find inside the facility. If you succeed in destroying the systems Core, it will eject a smaller container into space which contains the item you require. Simply click on the smaller container to collect it. If you miss the smaller container however, you can attempt to re-hack the system again in 10 seconds which will eject another smaller container upon success. Bring any you find back to me. Taking out their outpost only buys us time; we also need to see what the Guristas has planned.
