Doctor at Risk Walkthrough
Travel to Ontarom, in the Newton system of the Kepler Verge. Once you land on the planet drive around to find the base.
You will be greeted by 3 Mercenaries and 2 Mercenary Snipers guarding the entrance, once they are down, enter the base.
Move to the first room, grab the med kit and the two crates in the area, and prepare for a fight. On the next room you will find a total of 8 Mercenaries, including 2 Krogan and a Mercenary Sniper. Take them down. There are four crates to loot in the main room. Once you have all four, head to the back of the base.
When you reach the T-junction, head to the right, because the left one is locked.
You will find a soldier, Corporal Toombs, holding a scientist hostage. If your Commander Shepard is a Sole Survivor, he will recognize Toombs, and will be shocked to learn that he is alive. He tells you that his squad fell victim to a Thresher Maw attack, killing every other member in the process. However, he was captured by an organization called Cerberus, and was experimented on. He is the one responsible for the killing spree on Alliance scientists.
If you have at least 10 points spent in Charm, you can convince him to lower his Weapon and let the Alliance auhorities arrest the scientist. If you have at least 8 points in Intimidate, you can shoot the scientist yourself.
If Corporal Toombs is killed, you will get credits from the scientist as a reward. However, you can still arrest him afterwards.
