This mission is acquired immediately upon regaining control after escaping the ambush.
You arrive back at the Personal Apartment and a conversation immediately begins about what happened. Brooks can't believe that Shepard survived all of that. Shepard tries to contact Bailey but Brooks warns that doing so might make him a target. Shepard agrees and shuts down the comm link. Shepard then asks Brooks how they got involved in all of this and she explains how. She wrote a program to follow officer IDs and prevent fraud and it found someone hacking into Shepard's file. This identity thief went through Shepard's personal records, classified files, everything. Investigations need to start from somewhere, and the M-11 Suppressor Shepard recovered is chosen as the starting point.Liara then examines the pistol and summons Glyph. Glyph begins compiling data and then Joker walks in with the rest of the crew.
At this point you can go around and talk to all crewmembers there. James, EDI and Cortez are the only other crewmates present in any playthrough; the rest (Javik, Garrus, Tali, and Ashley/Kaidan) are contingent on them being recruited and part of the Normandy squad already. Wrex is present but only if the genophage cure is real, not faked - if he arrived to your rescue in the previous mission, it probably is.
Joker, EDI, Cortez, Glyph, Brooks, James, Ashley/Kaidan, and Tali are on the main floor. Javik, Garrus, and Wrex are on the top floor. Several of the crew give you a hard time about destroying the floor of the sushi bar, while Joker is still miffed at having been used as a decoy.
Liara says she called in some favors to get information on the gun and it led to a casino owner named Elijah Khan, who is suspected of using his money to smuggle weapons onto the Citadel. She continues by playing a very interesting call that took place after the attempt on Shepard's life. Someone took pains to hide behind voice modulators, and it isn't Khan. You can ask about the Mercs and they are from an organization called CAT6, which is slang for Alliance Dishonorable Discharges.Silver Coast Casino for a charity event for war refugees that evening.
The topic turns to how they will get into the panic room and how to disable the camera on the door. They all provide reasons why they wouldn't be able to assist...except for Brooks. Shepard then says that she is in, despite her objections. You can reassure her that she will be covered. Liara mentions one last hurdle: it is a black tie event.
