Alliance Faqs - How Do We Go About Completing A Sector Investigation Special Quest?
The Special Quest will have given a sector a number of sectors away from a settlement and the number of sectors around that sector. So if it is 1 sector around it, 9 sectors will need to be investigated, a 3 by 3 square. Issuing an I 0 order in the sector performs the investigation. Once the sectors have been investigated you can inform the liaison that the task has been completed. If nothing is found in the sectors, the task is still completed since the Alliance can state that nothing of interest is there
