The Man in High Orbit Walkthrough

Once you land interact with the intercom on the right part of the room. Convince the Receptionist Kelly to open the door, you can offer her a lift to the Groundbreaker, and she will give you the Cell Stability Mono-Lens.

Continue ahead and defeat the Security Robots. On the left part of the ship you'll find Dr. Jasper Low behind a locked door (You can also go inside by crouching through the opening).

Speak to Dr. Jasper Low. He will ask you to activate the turbine and give you the Turbine Platform Keycard. Use the elevator located on the north part of the ship to access the Turbine area.

 Once you reach the top level activate the leaves located on the right and left part of the ship. Once both levers are activated interact with the computer to re-activate the turbine.

Head back to Dr. Jasper Low. He will give you the CHEM Lab Passphrase and the Employee Benefits and you'll unlock the Experiment Perilous Quest.

      Has anyone noticed how these line of quests, are now opening 2 further quests same time ??
      And if you read the walk thru's , you need to have the 2 you opened to proceed ?
      Its like they ran out of time, and shortened it by doing it this way as a double ?

        started the turbines up again, spoke to Dr. Low and he acknowledged the power was back on. Got the lab access and ETC but the quest hasn't been deemed completed. Can't continue :(

          Does anyone know if there's a bug when accessing the Electromechanical Turbine Platform?? Cause once I try to go up I die for no reason :S

            You can only send the draft after you've fixed the turbine. If you send the message talk to Jasper afterwards, there's an extra dialogue option where you can tell Jasper you've sent the message and he will tell you they'll surely come for him. You can respond in various ways. Far as I can tell this does not make much of a difference.

              Does anyone know what happens if you send Dr. Low's draft? I came across it before talking to him, and I almost sent it on accident. I'm wondering how it would have affected things had I sent it.
