Theoretica Quest: light?

I need help regarding Quest on Theoretica abandoned ship. It's one of the quests to get HK-51 Companion Droid. It's called "Directive: Activate Assassination Protocols". You look for HK droid parts.

OK, there is one totally dark room almost at the end of this quest and it's virtually impossible to do it without any light source. What do I do? I saw people have some kind of light orbs active above their heads? Do you need to obtain such an overhead light droid from somewhere? And if so where from? Should I stop this quest and get such an overhead droid? How do I proceed?

If I remember correctly the light droid activator is the small icon next to the name of the quest in your mission tracker. See this image from the guide on Dulfy for reference.

IIRC, it is that yellow icon next to the mission.

Yes, thank you! That's it.

Wow, I would have never figured out to click that small icon next to the quest name.

Too bad that's not mentioned in Dulfy walkthrough.

Probably because the mechanic of small special action icons next to mission names is well established in SWTOR, and not related solely to the Theoretika mission. I think the earliest (in narrative sequence) is Inquisitor Arzanon's mission to hunt down traitors on Korriban, which becomes available when your Sith acolytes (of any Sith class) are first sent to the Lower Wilds.

Yes, the "icon next to the quest" thing is used often in SWTOR. 🙂
