D'Tan and Head Researcher A'dria enter the underground power plant to find an Iconian gateway and playback an ancient recording. 200,000 years ago, an Iconian is seen talking with another life form, likely a Dewan (though the universal translator is unable to decipher the conversation). Several explosions occur and the Iconian escapes through the gateway. Another recording, 150,000 years old, shows the power plant being connected to a giant machine. The Dewans seem to try to power the gateway, but fail, again resulting in a catastrophic explosion.
Excited about the discovery, D'Tan thanks the player for assisting them and pledges to share any research information they gather from this site.
You may have found the last secrets hidden in the depths of New Romulus.
Fight your way to the depths of the Underground Ruins on New Romulus and contact D'Tan when the final room is clear and safe.

- The identity of the Iconian in the cutscene is unconfirmed due to the lack of distinguishing features in the Dewan hologram. Only L'Miren can be eliminated as a possibilty, having lost the use of her legs in the attack on Iconia while the Iconian in the hologram is seen standing and walking.
