Ride the lift up to level two. Climb these crates to grab the ten nanites and three protocol droids emerge from their crates. Annihilate them from the safety of this perch. Six standard bullets are on the ledge behind the droid seen here.

System Shock 2 Walkthrough - System Shock-2 161

Next, ride the lift up to level three. (Use the lift that does not have debris next to it.) Don't exit the lift or you'll run into a laser turret. Instead, leap to the ledge between the boxes ahead.

System Shock 2 Walkthrough - System Shock-2 162

Find three cyber modules to the right and another difficult-to-hack security crate. Inside the crate you'll find 22 nanites, a med hypo and six standard bullets. Hop back onto the lift and slip back down unnoticed.

System Shock 2 Walkthrough - System Shock-2 163

Now it's time to grab the Cargo Bay 2 access card from this corpse (along with five nanites). Grab the loot quickly and then immediately run back past the replicator, as protocol droids soon erupt from their crates.
