Start off by walking forward, you will find the corpse of Matt Cothron hanging over the railing, he has ammo and the Silenced Pistol Ammo Fabrication Plan on him. Careful as there are 2 Greater Mimic's here. Jump over the railing and find a silenced pistol and a Typhon Lure on the floor. Look forward to the Grav lift, head down it. This leads to another escape pod bay, on the right wall as you walk forward is a Medkit. Once you are in the centre corridor, take the 1st steps up to the left side of the pods. Go to the 3rd pod on the left and you will find the imposter hiding. Approach him and on the floor beside him is a briefcase, if you are quick enough you can loot 2 Neuromods, 4 Jellied Eels and a Medkit. You need to quickly back up as he has boobytrapped the pod.

Turn left 90 degrees and on a chair is the corpse of Izumi Minami, she has 2 components on her. In front of the corpse on a desk is another Transcribe. This will start a side mission - Where is Kirk, this will only be useful if you still need to find members of the crew, if not ignore it.

Turn 90 degrees left and between the Navigation desk and the Station Monitor Power Plant desk is Skye Braxton's computer it has 1 email to read.
Turn right and follow the path along to the steps, head up them.

Inside the Captain's Loft, turn left and underneath the sofa is the corpse of Bill Nixon-Greene, he has a component, Weapon Upgrade Kit and a keycard on him. To the left of the sofa is a briefcase, it has a Psycholitic Converter =/~ Chipset inside. To the right of the sofa is a counter, this has RanDom Dim Sum, Old Sardar Bourbon and Green Beetle Gin.

Leave the Talos Bridge and head back out to the Arboretum and it is entirely your choice, do you want to destroy the station or fabricate the Nullwave Transmitter?
Consider in your 2nd playthrough that you have to destroy the station to get an achievement, so if you want to see both endings it could be worth picking the Nullwave option.
