    This achievement is attainable by progressing through The Distress Signal side quest you receive from Gladys in GroundBreaker. Once you arrive at Roseway speak with Anton Crane, the scientist whom sent out the initial distress call, and retrieve his research. Instead of returning it to Gladys for a profit, or letting outlaws escape with it, return it to the man himself for a tasty 15 gamerscore.

    Sh8z8mAnyone else had any problems with this not popping despite handing the research to Anton? Have tried reloading saves prior and still no achievement.

    NICKtheNlNJAI had the same issue with the achievement not popping. It was the last achievement I was trying for the night so when it didn't pop I was a little upset. I didn't bother checking my achievement list and just shut down. After checking it the next day I saw I had won the achievement. I do remember one other achievement that I earned that didn't pop while playing this game. I can't remember which one it was but I had to check my achievement list to assure it was unlocked. If anything just give it some time and it should unlock.

    Khan GarthI got his research but when I went back to Roseway, he and everyone else in the town immediately started attacking me.

    This achievement is missable if you do not obtain the research and give it to Anton. If you let the outlaws keep it or give it to Gladys it will void the achievement for the play through.

    Once on Groundbreaker go talk to Gladys for the nav chip. Tell her you do not have enough money and she will give you the quest "The Distress Signal". It will take you to Anton where he will ask you to find his research. Then just go and kill all the outlaws and take the information from the leaders corpse. If you do not have the keycard to get into her cell, you can make one in the room right next to the one with the empty safe. If you need anymore help make sure you watch the video guide.

    - After talking to Gladys on the Groundbreaker to acquire Udom's Seal, she will mention about an "opportunity" to help make some bits to afford what she's selling.

    - Take her up on the opportunity and she will send you to "Roseway" via the "Roseway Landing Pad" which is unlocked by talking to her about it and getting the "Distress Signal" side-quest.

    - Once there follow the quest marker to ROSEWAY. Once there you can talk to 3 scientists in the town that have info you can sell to Gladys. For this achievement talk to ANTON CRANE and accept his Toothpaste Recipe recovery quest.

    - Simply complete this quest for Anton, BUT...instead of giving the information to Gladys, give the recipe to Anton Crane instead to receive this achievement. If you bring it to Gladys to sell you will NOT get the achievement.

    *Should also mention Anton gives you bits too anyways so it's NBD giving it to Anton instead :P
