The party boards Cerebus Station. Much of the station is depressurized and lacks power. The party investigates the docking bay and the nearby regions, and discovers blood and signs of violent struggle. They also find a pristine EU2A1 Mendez APC. As they go deeper into the station, they come across Phil Hernandez McCollin behind a shotgun trap. They give him medical aid to help with his leg. After more searching, they come across Dr. Emerson, who is cooking a frozen dinner and completely oblivious to the circumstances around him.
The party come across and dispatch two Cerebus Hounds, human sized dogs with strange protrusions and scales on their backs, and a larval Cerebus Hound. The party comes across various dead bodies while making their way to the command center. In the command center, they encounter a Final Stage Cerebus Hound, a large insectoid version of the Cerebus Hounds. James Albright gets a lucky shot through the left eye of the monster, instantly killing it. The party comes across a severely injured and unconscious person. Joan Darnell, Esmerelda Malik, and Chepi Porter take the unconscious person back to the Blackbird. While traveling there, they are ambushed by a Final Stage Cerebus Hound, and barely manage to fend it off and get back to The Blackbird.
The group in the command center copy all information they can off the computers, discovering that six people were able to escape the station a couple of days ago, and gaining access to the security system. While securing the rest of the station, they come across a group of larval Cerebus Hounds crowding around a door, which are dispatched with a frag grenade. They rescue Georgia Fitzgerald, a research assistant and intern for Dr. Emerson.
The group then proceed to the research lab spire. They stay clear of the lab area, which contains a Final Stage Cerebus hound, and find the armory. After getting past an automated turret, the group goes inside the armory, which is guarded by Zach. They take supplies from the armory and proceed through the rest of the spire, finding Pandesh Johnson and Olivia Hunt. At the top floor of the spire are three Final Stage Cerebus Hounds. The party puts out three automated turrets, gets the attention of the hounds, then run away. While they wait for the carnage to stop, a man comes out of the elevator shaft after the elevator falls down under the weight of a Final Stage Cerebus Hound and his power armor. They retrieve two other people.
The group then has a rendezvous with the rest of the party. Together, they secure the engineering bay, killing another Final Stage Cerebus Hound. They then vent all of the atmosphere in the station. While returning to The Blackbird, they are attacked by a Final Stage Cerebus Hound, who then chokes to death. The party then leaves the station in their ship.
