Tasks

Go to the different areas of the station to complete your career tasks. In time, your great work performance will be rewarded with a promotion and a better salary. But be careful! Failing your tasks too often can keep that promotion out of reach, and if the task is illegal or dangerous, you might find yourself in trouble if you fail.

The lower the pay of the task, the easier it probably is to do.

Notes

  • Major revamp on 2019-Jun-15, which changed payment and added many new tasks
  • The success message referencing posing as a simple tailor is a likely homage to Elim Garak from the television series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, a self-proclaimed "simple tailor" who turns out to be a former Cardassian intelligence agent.
