Who Goes There? Walkthrough
This quest is obtained at Groundbreaker, by speaking to Comdt. Sanita or perusing the bounty board. Completing this quest can grant you access to security restricted areas, such as needed for The Empty Man, however you can kill a guard or loot Mardet ID Cartridge from a container near the docks where your ship is located instead.
You can find Captain MacRedd in the Back Bays area of the Groundbreaker. To get there head down the elevator in the promenade, and you can't miss him. You can pass a Persuade (40) check to get him to put his gone down, otherwise you'll have to kill him and all his guards. If you kill him he drops the Unique Weapon: Montag.
You'll get 6000xp and MacRedd's Lighter. If you persuaded him, use Perception to note it says "Sanita" on the lighter. MacRedd also makes note of a previous fling that he had with Comdt. Sanita.
