How to Unlock Olive Branch
Start this quest by talking to Nilesh Sherazi in the Embassy District of New Atlantis. You can find him on the path between Aphelion Realty and the large tree in front of the MAST Tower.
Nilesh tells you that he used to work at the Interstellar Affairs office but was let go due to some disagreements with the management. After this, he tried to plant an olive seed on public property and was beaten up by the guard. Now, he wants you to plant the seed for him.

Distract the Guard
Speak with Nilesh again and ask him to distract the guard. He yells in a panic about a crime report. This causes the guards to get distracted. If you attempt to plant the seed without causing a distraction, the guard nearby will intervene and stop you from planting it.
Alternatively, you can use a different distraction with a social skill, such as Manipulation, to force the guard to change locations.

Plant the Seed in the Soil Patch
Plant the seed in the soil patch while the guard is distracted(or dead). Crouch and sneak up to improve your chances of success, and do it when the bar above says you're hidden. If you don't have the stealth bar, consider putting a point into the Stealth skill.
Hand the Seed Over to the Guard (optional)
Instead of planting the seed, you can hand it over to the guard. Talk to the UC Security Guard and tell him you were asked to plant the seed. He will confiscate and get rid of the seed. The quest will end, and you will receive no rewards for doing this. It’s just a decision born out of spite.
Return to Nilesh
After planting the seed, return to Nilesh and talk to him to receive your rewards.
