Illium: Medical Scans Walkthrough

When you are walking past the Tracking Office, you will be approached by a colonist that recognizes you from the Mission on Feros two years ago (In the original Mass Effect). 

If you spared most of the colonists, the colony has recovered and grown but are now facing new troubles; if not (or if you did not import a Mass Effect character), then the colonists have returned to Earth.

You learn that while signing a contract on Illium for treatment, the colonists have inadvertently given permission for Baria Frontiers to perform invasive and potentially harmful medical tests on them. She asks you if you can negotiate with the Baria Frontiers representative to change the terms of the contract. Talk to Erinya, the Baria Frontiers representative, to learn she clearly has a problem with Asari, because she blames the death of of her partner and children on other species. You can persuade her to alter the contract if you have high enough Paragon or Renegade points.
