1. Happiness is a Warm Spaceship Walkthrough
You will unlock this quest by speaking with Junlei Tennyson at her office near the Groundbreaker Promenade. She will share that she has not fixed the heat issue because she needs parts, and the Board is attempting to extort her with outrageous prices and increased demands.
You can offer your services, and she will inform you that there are parts that can be used within the ship, but they are in the “Back Bays”, that have been overrun by undesirables.
You can take the lift in front of the engineering room to go down to the Back Bays. It is best to bring Felix with you if you have recruited him at the Groundbreaker docks. Approach Captain Macredd, and he will soon notice Felix in the party. This makes your options a lot easier, as you can Lie (40) to get the parts, but if Felix is there you can instead Bribe him for 625 bits. He will then let you get through without issue.
If you’re also doing the quest: Who Goes There? you can talk to him again and pass a persuade (40) check to finish the quest without violence. Killing him gives you a unique weapon: Montag.
Go past him and up the stairs to the left to pick up Radiator Parts, then head down and talk to Private Lettie Dixon and convince her to head back up. Talk to Junlei and you’ll get 6000xp and instructions on what to do next.
There’s a lift heading down within the engineering bay. Take it and you’ll face some Mantipillar enemies to defeat. A terminal nearby has some lore logs to read, and a ladder ahead takes you to the next level. You can loot some Bit Cartridge and Armor Parts, then go through the door and take a right. Up the stairs, you’ll face a faulty Mechanical Sentry and can pick up some Mag-Pick and ammo. Further Ahead there are some more malfunctioning robots to defeat, and a ladder down taking you to your objective. Kill the two robots by the terminal and then interact with it. You can read the logs to find out about the ship’s status and then Cycle the Pumps.
Go back and talk to Junlei and you’ll receive 18000xp, 3000 Bit Cartridge, Groundbreaker Reputation and the unique Armor: Welder’s Goggles.
2. Drinking Sapphire Wine Walkthrough
This quest is unlocked when you dock at the Groundbreaker during Passage to Anywhere. It is only available if you recruited Parvati into your party. She will be standing by the ship’s exit, and ask to talk to you. Agree to take her to meen Junlei Tennyson and bring her in your party to the ship.
Junlei is found in her office near Groundbreaker Promenade. Talk to her and then introduce Parvati to earn 14000xp. Be encouraging during their conversation to keep things positive.
You can then talk to Parvati again once you return to the Unreliable. She will mention that her back and forth with Junlei has resulted in receiving a poem, that is pretty romantic. She does not know if she’s reading too much into it. Encourage her and she will read another message and she will find out about Junlei’s previous flame, Isabelle. She will ask to go have a drink at The Lost Hope bar in the Groundbreaker. Agree and you’ll get 14,400 xp.
Important: Some users report that advancing quests without joining Parvati at the bar may result in her going by herself and dying. Take her as soon as you get this quest!
Go to the Lost Hope and talk to Parvati. She will ask you what to drink. Wine is a good option for her, after which she’ll reveal she’s pining for Junlei “something fierce’. Bring up your friendship and she will ask for advise. You can question by she’s so unsettled, and it turns out it’s the mention of Isabelle.
You can reply that nobody sends bad sensual poems to people they are not interested in. She will trip over her words a bit and you can persuade (25) to get her to drink some water instead. Tell her there’s an easy way to answer her questions, and she will say she does not feel comfortable spilling her guts. You can encourage her to ask people to accept her as she is. In the end, you’ll be able to persuade (15) her to ask the captain out, or use Inspiration / Determination (15) to have her make her own choice.
Return to the Unreliable and talk to Parvati again, and you’ll find out that things worked out between them. You’ll be rewarded with 19200xp.

Speak with Gladys and you’ll gain 4,800 xp for picking a soap. There are 3 soap options: rose, apple and “scrub”. Then speak to Parvati and give her the Soap to gain another 4,800 XP.
