You start as Quinn. Take a look at your surroundings, explore the ship, read everything you can from computer (personal log, etc.). Take anything that isn't nailed down. You should have 12 items in Quinn's inventory. Quinn can order some food from the computer if he wishes and you might be interested in a little game of Outpost Alpha. After aquiring all 12 objects go to the bridge and talk with other passangers. It's quite amusing to switch over to Seeker or Miranda and talk to Quinn.
