Post-quest activities

You can get some additional conversation options and other rewards out of him once you return the antenna:

  • Initially, asking him any questions just gives hints that he's going to be up all night working on it. If only he had some more caffeine…
  • Hack into the computer system and Command the coffee controls to get free coffee.
  • The following two sets of tasks can be completed in either order:
  • Or:
    • b) Acquire a second (non-damaged) helidrone antenna.
    • b) Offer to give it to him to receive a can of PowerCode.
    • b) You can now buy more PowerCode from him for 75 cred, or 4 for 250 cred.

If you have made the coffee free via hacking the Coffee Controls, you can then return to "Ask about the antenna" to learn the (quest) recipe for secured transmission functions.
