Talk to Simon Ryczek

Meet up with Simon Ryczek and talk to him. He will only speak with you if you remember the passcode. The passcode is "Razor derby is the only real sport". It's pretty funny to mess around with the incorrect options, but Simon Ryczek will get annoyed and charge you extra Credits if you do this.

Negotiate with Simon Ryczek

Simon Ryczek will change up his end of the bargain and demand that you either pay extra Credits or perform a side quest for him. If your companion is Andreja, she can bargain on your behalf. Otherwise, you can use the Persuasion skill to lower the cost from 10000 to 8000 Credits. Play your cards right, and you can get it down to 4000 Credits.

If the cost seems too much, you can always accept the side quest, giving you access to a unique new weapon and a new starship. The side quest involves hunting down Malai Liskova and returning with her gun as proof of death. Your companions won't appreciate this, but there's a way around that.

Talk to Malai Liskova

Once you arrive, you'll immediately be contacted by The Datura, Malai Liskova's ship. You can choose to attack right away or talk to her and persuade her into letting you dock. It's a relatively easy Persuasion check.

Dock the Datura

Dock The Datura and head to the cockpit to talk to Malai Liskova. Here, you have the choice of attacking her to get the weapon or persuading her to hand it over. This persuasion check is a bit more difficult, but she invited you on board to kill you anyway, so don't feel too bad if things go south.
