As you board The Eye, blue locators will appear at various parts of the ship where members of Constellation will be waiting for you to help with repairs.

Sarah will want you to use the wrenches to bolt down equipment, which can be found under the two monitors in her location. Barrett will ask you to test the connection on the computer. Sam Coe will ask you to weld new panels by picking up the Welder next to him. Andreja will want you to install the parts for new scanning equipment that are located on a table nearby.
