I have a cardassian forcefield key in my inventory. I'm in the "seed" mission where you have to go into the cave to fix the water supply and capture the healing lillies etc. to protect the colonists from the True Way. There are a pair of force fields near the entrance, one of which has a cardassian on a terminal, that i would like to go through. There is another field at the top of the inner reservoir. When i approached the forcefield the Cardy runs away, so i figure this stuff isn't just a backdrop. I can't do anything at the forcefields.
Can I use the forcefield key to get through the forcefield? When i try to equip it nothing happens. Is there another way through. What is this thing for anyways, or does it just take up inventory space?
