Much like the Path to 2049 achievement this one requires getting datachips. I would provide links to the wiki, but it seems out of date in certain places or mentions features we don't have on console yet, like Duty Officers. It also claims you need to be certain Tiers in the reputation to do the indoor instances, but I found that while doing the story they just sent me to those places anyway, even at Tier 0 and could replay them from the episode list. But it should be noted that while you only need to be level 50 to land on New Romulus, you can't do the quests there until you've unlocked the New Romulus episode. You can still do the alerts that can appear though.

While doing the accolades for exploring New Romulus you have to stand on the edge of a house in the Staging Area. Under you is the Romulan Historian who you can trade 4 New Romulus Research every 20 hours. If you're trying to find her normally just look for the big ship in front of the warehouse and look for the small building to the south of it. She appears on you map when you get nearby, just not with the usual "i" icon.

While there might be other ways to get these items, I choose to redo the New Romulus mission for the Overgrown Caves and collect the figurines. The mission is pretty straightforward, not as much fighting as the others, with 2-3 research each time and you can also earn progress towards another accolade by checking out the murals randomly placed in the caves. If you need more Research I also recommend the Mountain Pass. Again it's straightforward, not too hard, and in this mission you want to keep an eye out for 3 small glowing terminals near each of the captured Romulans. The missions have a 30 minute cooldown, so you can always just do one mission again once it's ready. You could also abort a mission before completing all of the objectives, but this can bug some objects you interact with, like the device to lower the forcefield in the Caves, so I don't recommend it.

You can also get Research from the Alerts that happen on New Romulus, but the amount is dependent on if you get 100% and how much you contributed. More than likely all you'll get is 1, although a successful Alert can net you somewhere between 4 - 10.

There are 31 of these datachips that you need to earn, each volume and chapter have their own accolades to help you keep track. You can also trade/sell these chips with other players, or mail them between other characters on your own account by sending it to your own gamertag, example @saracin, just like in Neverwinter. The achievement should unlock along with the accolade for completing all volumes so make sure you collect them all on one character.

The volumes and chapters breakdown as:

Volume 1 - 3 Chapters
Volume 2 - 3 Chapters
Volume 3 - 3 Chapters
Volume 4 - 7 Chapters
Volume 5 - 8 Chapters
Volume 6 - 7 Chapters

If I'm missing any info or need to be clear on anything please let me know in the comments or send me a message.

EDIT: Add info about another area the wiki is currently wrong, and also another, less that useful, way to get Research.
