  • At your word, the guidance node hovers off, but not before warning you that the Beta Quadrant is home to chimerical monstrosities. Follow the node to Matter Conduit IV-V and speak with it to receive further instructions.
  • You arrive at the next matter conduit only to find that it does not work. According to the guidance node, chimerical creatures nearby are siphoning away the energy necessary for activation. Alphinaud suggests that you split up and eliminate these pests. For your part, see to the creatures at the Recombination Labs.
  • You have eliminated your share of the chimerical creatures. Make your way back to the guidance node at Matter Conduit IV-V.
  • With no monsters left to siphon energy, the matter conduit comes back to life and is now able to send you to the Gamma Quadrant. Examine the conduit when you are ready to proceed.
  • You arrive in the Gamma Quadrant to find the place crawling with Garlean soldiers. Their presence is an unwelcome complication to your mission.

Azys Lla[edit]

Beta Quadrant[edit]

Matter Conduit III-II[edit]

<blip> Resuming guidance to the Aetherochemical Research Facility. Please follow me. This sector, the Beta Quadrant, is home to laboratories which produce chimerical life-forms for both military and household applications. Our facility has been awarded three-star certification for compliance with ASO�3001. The good behavior of the creatures born here is guaranteed. Please be warned, however, that millennia of neglect may have had an adverse effect on their disposition. For your own safety, please refrain from approaching the creatures.
The orb is beginning to try my patience.
The Allagans did not respect life. Brilliant as they were, I cannot bring myself to respect them.
The area teems with chimerical creatures. Be on your guard.

Matter Conduit IV-V[edit]

<blip> Unable to activate matter conduit. Energy shortage detected.
Identifying cause... Cause identified: unauthorized siphoning of energy by chimerical creatures.
Locations: the Recombination Labs and the Biomass Incubation Complex.
Time is short─let us split up and eliminate the culprits. Forename, pray dispatch the creatures at the Recombination Labs. The rest of us shall sweep the Incubation Complex. Take care, and return hither when you are done.
I welcome the chance to limber up ahead of the battle to come.
What has gotten into Alphinaud all of a sudden?
I can hold my own!
The area is clear. Let us return to the node.
Finished, are you? Then let us be on our way.
The next quadrant awaits. Let us make haste.
Machines are not to be trusted, least of all those that can think.
Alphinaud has come far. Master Louisoix would be proud.
While facing the chimerical creatures, I had a moment of inspiration. I feel I have attained a better affinity with arcane entities.
<blip> Energy restored to the conduit. Please wait a moment while I activate it. Energy has been restored. To proceed, please ensure that all members of your party are present. Conduit activated. You may travel to the Gamma Quadrant at your leisure.

Gamma Quadrant[edit]

Matter Conduit V-IV[edit]

This matter conduit, too, was last serviced five thousand and fourteen years, six months, and eleven days ago. An old Allagan saying comes to mind: once is a miracle, twice is fate.
So the Garleans managed to land... Repairs on their vessel appear to be well underway.
I doubt that they will leave any time soon, however. Nay, they will remain here long after they have stripped the isle of all its secrets.
Whether or not they mean to linger, their presence here and now is an unwelcome complication.
Indeed. Let us avoid confrontations unless absolutely needful.
