Video One - Hacking InEdit
While on the bridge of the Christiane I, Sam looks at the numbers, which were provided by the Maxwell Group, which he had discovered were coordinates. As Ockham leaves, Sam disconnects a wire on the chart plotter, which gives Ockham the appearance that it is damaged. Ockham requests Sam take a look at it, and informs him that he will be telling Talbot. As Ockham leaves, Sam reconnects the wire, and inters a USB device into the computer to begin hacking in.
Activity One - Hack the Chart PlotterEdit
In this activity, Sam is attempting to hack into the chart plotter using a program loaded through his USB device, which is called Metrix. Using the program, Sam attempts to break the chart plotter encryption by finding the correct password combination, which is given through 8 possible characters, of which only 5 are correct. These 5 characters appear only once, and the program gives a red indicator if the character is in the correct position, a white indicator if it is in the wrong position, and no indicator if the letter does not appear in the sequence. The player has ten attempts to find the correct sequence.
Video Two - FailureEdit
Video Three - SuccessEdit
Once the correct sequence is discovered, Sam is able to locate the coordinates on the chart plotter. Ockham and Talbot arrive, and Sam informs them that it was just a loose display cable. Ockham informs Sam that he can sleep, but that he will be on call 24/7. As Sam returns to his quarters, he notices Talbot waiting there for him, and accuses him of lying about the chart plotter malfunction. Talbot provides Sam with the coordinates that he had previously written down, and Sam doesn't acknowledge them. However, he finally divulges that he had received the coordinates from the Maxwell Group. Talbot states that Sam doesn't know what he's getting into, and to stay away from the coordinates, as he won't find what he is looking for.

Sam states that he doesn't know who the Maxwell Group is and why they're contacting him; he mentions the latest e-mail sent him with a message saying "Love you madly", which is a phrase that he and Sonya used to say all the time.
