Official Summary[edit]

"The player's presence is requested by Vae Victis, the once-executed, now jailed former Admiral of the UC. Vae Victis has a proposal for the player - he'll give the player the location of Hadrian's Xenowarfare team if the player will kill someone for him. The player can either agree to help or offer to bring the criminal in question - Dr. Reginald Orlase - to justice. \n\nThey're directed to The Den to speak to the local Vanguard, then out to an old debris field where Orlase has been hiding. After a dogfight where they can either destory Orlase's ship, killing the doctor, or board it and he'll do the job himself, and the collect his ID to return to Vae Victis, completing the task."

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

The Man Downstairs[edit]

After swearing you in as a citizen, Deputy MacIntyre will inform you that an important UC official - she refuses to give you a name - has requested a meeting with you by name. This individual apparently has information that could help thwart the Terrormorph threat. MacIntyre insists that you swear to absolute secrecy, then gives you clearance to take the elevator down to Subsection Seven, beneath the MAST Tower.

Subsection Seven is an enormous storage facility. After leaving the elevator, turn right. A marine will let you into a long airlock tunnel. Pass through, and you'll find yourself on a catwalk overlooking a large room. On the far side, reinforced glass separates the room from a luxurious but highly secure prison cell. Before the cell is a desk with an intercom. A voice asks you to access the intercom. Do so, and you will come to face to face with the UC's best-kept secret: Admiral Francoise Sanon, better known as Vae Victis.

Vae Victis explains that, after he was sentenced to death for war crimes, the leadership of the UC decided he was too valuable an asset to throw away. His execution by lethal injection was staged, and he was secretly imprisoned in Subsection Seven. Now he assists UC "recovery teams" in tracking down escaped war criminals, many of them his former compatriots. He is willing to help you find the former members of the Red Devils, but first, he wants you to eliminate a Xenowarfare expert who fled prosecution after the Colony War, Reginald Orlase. Vae Victis believes that Orlase is hiding out in the Wolf System, and directs you to Vanguard captain Rayna Marquez to track him down.

If you bring this information to Deputy MacIntyre, she will tell you that killing Orlase is out of the question, but that bringing him in alive would be acceptable.

The Warlock[edit]

Jump to the Wolf System and dock with The Den. This is an old UC military space station, the second to bear the name after the first was destroyed in the Serpent's Crusade. Marquez can be found on the upper deck, to the right of the bar. She doesn't recognize the name Orlase, and is convinced that nobody could be hiding out in Wolf, but when pressed will mention "the Warlock", a sort of bogeyman that haunts the wreckage of the original Den. She warns you that the area is dangerous, but agrees to give you the Warlock's last known location regardless.

The Warlock is located in a field of asteroids and naval mines, surrounded by destroyed salvage ships. It does not immediately attack, but will instead go into combat once you get too close. The Warlock makes good use of the cover provided by the asteroid field, and is equipped with turrets that allow it to attack from odd angles. You will need to either destroy the Warlock outright and loot Orlase's ID card from the record, or disable its engines and board it.

If you do choose to board the Warlock, Orlase will refuse to come quietly, and will kill himself before you can access the bridge. Loot the ID card from his body. His personal computer is also on the bridge - most of the files are purged, but a few that survive suggest Orlase recently made a deal to transport something.

Once you have the ID card, return to Vae Victis.

I just spoke to Vae Victis, a former UC admiral and a man who's supposed to be dead. He asked me to track down - and "deal with" - a rogue weapons scientist named Reginald Orlase.

Captain Marquez has given me the coordinates I need to find "The Warlock," a ship that may be home to Orlase. But she warned me to be careful - a number of ships have been lost in the debris fields where the Warlock's been seen.
301(P-Late: Orlase loaded in once. Update his health to something more level appropriate)
350(Player has gotten within 5000 meters of Orlase's ship. Wake the ship up)
400(Player engaged Orlase's ship. Change objectives and have him say his intro line.)
I've found the Warlock. And whoever's piloting it doesn't sound pleased I'm here. Time to either disable his engines to capture him (using an EM Weapon or the Targeting Control Systems skill)... or shoot him out of the sky.
401(Orlase's intro scene kicked off.)

I'm onboard the Warlock! Time to confront the pilot!

440(P2: OBJ: ORLASE FIGHT: Orlase's scene completed. He's now officially "dead" (though he's actually dead the whole time).)

451(P2: OBL: ORLASE SHIP: Player acquired Orlase's cabin key. Clean up related objectives if they're displayed.)
500(Orlase's ship is destroyed. Direct the player to collect a piece of his ship.)
I destroyed the Warlock - and its pilot with it. I need to search the wreckage, find evidence this was Orlase.
550(Player of their ship acquired the ID. Direct them back to VV.)
I found Orlase's old United Colonies ID. This should be sufficient evidence to prove to Vae Victis the job is done.
551(P2: DIA: VV WRAP: Player hit second loop. Get them back there.)
552(P2: DIA: VV WRAP: Player hit final loop. Get them back there.)
553(P2: DIA: VV WRAP: Player learned Kaiser's a robot. Flag that global (used in UC07 to change up dialogue))
560(P3: VV directed the player to hand over Orlase's ID.)
Vae Victis has asked me to hand over the evidence I collected that Orlase is dead. I should approach the transfer system.
570(P3: The player activated the transfer system. Take the ID from them, let VV's scene proceed, then)
575(P3: System transfer line completed. VV's now got the card in his hand. Start his line.)
580(P3: VV scene completed.)
I've handed over the ID. Time to get the location of Hadrian and Percival's research team.
  • Any text displayed in angle brackets (e.g., <Alias=LocationHold>) is dynamically set by the Radiant Mission system, and will be filled in with the appropriate word(s) when seen in game.
  • Not all entries may appear in your log; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the mission is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with missions that have multiple possible outcomes or missions where certain tasks may be done in any order. Some stages may therefore repeat objectives seen in other stages.
  • If an entry is marked as "Finishes Mission" it means the mission disappears from the Active Mission list, but you may still receive new entries for that mission.
  • On the PC, it is possible to use the console to advance through the mission by entering setstage UC06 stage, where stage is the number of the stage you wish to complete. It is not possible to un-complete (i.e. go back) mission stages, but it is possible to clear all stages of the mission using resetquest UC06.
