Not realizing that I could use the PDA later on in the game, I simply sold it to Owl. After running across the ex-Monolith in Jupiter, and then having everyone at Yavnov tell me "lol no way dude", I read around and discovered that I could have used Morgan's PDA to get friendly with Freedom or Duty.
So, uh, am I stuck now? Is there any way to use the console to spawn the item or edit my save file or something? Or is there another avenue through the game? (Please don't spoil anything for me! :) )
the only thing where its positiv to be friendly with one of the factions in janow station is the point with the ex monolithsquad, from my point of view. u can get a second pda which you can give the freedom or duty leader, same thing like morgans pda. make the veles detektor quest and all other quests for the scientists.
when u sell morgans pda to the duty man, u clear their weaponary near the janow station from the freedoms and u can grab some weapons and ammo from it. but u dont have to start a new game or something like that, u get a second duty pda which u can sell to freedom or duty to get friendly with one of the factions. by the way that would be really frustrating, to have morgans pda sold to owl and then get stuck in the area around jupiter...
If you follow the missions given by the scientists until you get the one to check out the anomaly at the cooling tower, you'll get a PDA after completing it that can be sold to Duty or Freedom to increase relations. They also show some interest in the documents you find at the jupiter station. I can't remember which ones exactly, but there will be an option to sell them.
