Talk to Professor Herik anytime after Pathfinder Ryder speaks to him during Task: Getting to Know the Nexus and accept his request for help. After the Tempest's acquisition, Professor Herik can be found at the Tech Lab of the Nexus Docking Bay.
Access the terminal Edit
After accepting the mission from Herik, access the nearby terminal to read about the efforts to catalog the organisms that live in the galaxy before either Milky Way or Scourge interference wipes out the native species.
Scan Andromeda wildlife Edit
The creatures do not need to be alive to be scanned, but must have a corpse left behind; as some of them disintegrate upon death, it can be a challenge to scan some wildlife if your squadmates attack on sight. It might be advisable to direct the team away from the creature you are trying to scan.
Speak With Professor Herik Edit
Once 10 samples are obtained return to Professor Herik on the Nexus to complete the mission. The three remaining wildlife samples scanned after the completion of the mission will still provide research data.
