ED-E canceling the launch
Initial tests of the override system are promising. Against unsecured or lightly-encrypted targets, the Eyebots have a 98% success rate. More heavily protected systems are still problematic. Military-grade encryption presents a very real possibility of critical overload of key systems.”— Dr. Whitley, Experiment log 369248/A
|Quest: The End|
|Go to the missile control panel and attempt to stop the missile launch.|
|Select to have ED-E hack the missiles and stop the launch.|
|Reward: 5000 XP, Bitter drink recipe, Courier duster, Ulysses' duster, Ulysses' mask, Ulysses' final message, Old Glory, +1 S.P.E.C.I.A.L. point,Positive Brotherhood of Steel and Followers of the Apocalypse fame|
To complete this quest, the Courier must proceed to the Control Panel from which the missiles may be launched. Should the courier desire to select "Attempt to stop missile launch", ED-E must be rescued first. If not, the quest fails and leads to The Apocalypse.
In order to rescue ED-E, the courier must free him from his pod in the repair room near the elevator to the temple. ED-E is located in pod number 2 and can be released by using the terminal on the table in front of the pods.
Once ED-E has been rescued and the courier has dealt with Ulysses, proceed to the launch control pad and select the option for ED-E to hack it. This will initiate a recording from Dr. Whitley. The following dialogue will explain that the eyebots can override heavily encrypted data, but will probably not survive the process.
If the launch is not stopped, it is impossible to acquire enough Brotherhood of Steel fame to reach the Idolized status with them.
