"Take care of Officer Jack" for Mira
location: New California Republic (town)
given by: Mira
reward: 9000 xp and skill books

In downtown NCR the city's primary power generator is located. However, it is unguarded, as the police assume citizens won't try to nuke their power supply. This weakness was exploited by Officer Jack, a policeman who suffered a nervous breakdown due to his ex-wife, Mira and strapped himself with explosives, aiming to blow up the reactor.

The Chosen One can rectify the situation on behest of Dorothy, the city's engineer. There are several ways to deal with the threat.

  • Talk Jack out of it (Speech 80% or the Speaker perk). The easiest dialogue path is 1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 2 (there's only one node where it doesn't matter what you say). If you succeed, you earn 6000 xp. Talk to Dorothy for another 3000 xp (although it doesn't say on your screen), a Big Book of Science, a Scout Handbook, a First Aid Book and a Dean's Electronics.
  • Wait for Jack to begin his routine ("Bite me! This is Jack!") and blast him, then tell Dorothy there was no alternative to killing him, and you get the books and 3000 xp. If you tell her there was a way to avoid bloodshed, you don't get anything except loot from Jack.
  • Let him blow up, then repair the bank of monitors on the wall with either Science or Repair. (You can do this even if you don't get the option to tell Dorothy you're good at repairing things, which requires Repair 65%.) You'll get the 3000 xp and books reward, plus the stuff you find in Jack's body parts.
  • Let him blow up, then stand back and watch as Dorothy fails to repair the computer. She may die in the resulting explosion, in which case you can pick up a Scout Handbook and Dean's Electronics from the ground, but as you can imagine you get no other reward for this. The forcefields to Westin's and Carlson's estates go down, but the policemen will turn hostile if you trespass.
