Once you board the Normandy SR2 for the first time relatively early on in the game, you will have immediate access to all three of the side quests available here on the ship. One of the qualities of a good captain is familiarity with both the physical infrastructure of the ship and with its loyal crewmembers as well. Shepard has a chance to make good with his crew by making sure that they have all the necessary accommodations. Most will assure the captain that everything is in order, but others will spill their heart's desire. Below lists the special quests you can find.
FBA CouplingsReward: XP
In the Engineering level of this spacecraft, Shepard meets two engineers by the name of Donnelly and Daniels. When you get to know them better, they point out a serious design oversight--some FBA Couplings would make everyone's lives so much easier. Of course, as the captain you no doubt must see to it that everything runs as smoothly as possible.
You will find these FBA Couplings from a small salvage shop known as Kenn's Salvage on Omega. On Omega locate this shop to find a young and miserable Quarian named Kenn who's barely eking out a living selling parts on hiked up prices. Apparently, a guy named Harrot is the reason Kenn can never make enough to buy himself off this forsaken trench. His plight is the subject of a different side quest listed in the Omega section under "Struggling Quarian." Browse his selection of goods to find the FBA Couplings.
Bring this new contraption to the pair of engineers on your ship. Delighted, they invite the captain for a game of cards, during which you can earn credits as well as Paragon and Renegade points.
Serrice Ice BrandyReward: Increase Medi-Gel capacity +1, XP
In one of the side offices at the Crew's Quarters, Shepard will find a comforting and familiar face: Dr. Chakwas. You can catch up with her if you'd like. When asked if there's anything else she needs, she nonchalantly requests a Serrice Ice Brandy. She had lost the one she had before and now laments the fact that she never had a chance to open it. Agree to replace it, and while she won't be openly jubilant about the idea she will no doubt be grateful when you show up with a bottle.
Obtaining this elixir of wonderful effects will be a task of the simplest degree. This can be completed at the Citadel along with the other side quest below, Special Ingredients. You just have to be in the Citadel for a few moments before your explorer's instinct takes you to the entrance of a certain Dark Star lounge. While there are other things of unbridled debauchery to experience, your main interest, a bottle of Serrice Ice Brandy, can be purchased from the bartender. And it's as simple as that.
Return to Chakwas to revel in the company of both her and an opened bottle of brandy.
Special IngredientsReward: XP
The very amicable Mess Sergeant Gardner is a multi-purpose Swiss army knife: he cooks, cleans, and performs various handiwork around the ship. He's very humbled by Shepard's visit at his station in the Crew's Quarters, but when asked about any other needs Gardner doesn't hide the fact that the kitchen provisions are sorely lacking. If there's anything he believes in, it would be a well-fed stomach satisfied with sustenance that doesn't taste like cardboard.
Agree to help him out, and he hands you a supply list of things you can pick up at the Citadel. It's not a bothersome trip at all, especially if you follow the walkthrough to a tee. When you finally get around to going to the Citadel, seek out a place called Zakera Café. You shouldn't miss it, as it is located on the same level you docked on. Here you will find an item for sale called High Grade Provisions. These are exactly what Gardner need back at the ship, so purchase it and head back to speak with him.
As a sign of his deepest appreciation, he lets the captain try his newest recipe firsthand, which concludes this side quest.
