Kate's mission to end the quarantine appears to be glitchy.
Although all the research stations have been destroyed the mission is still in the "go to the stations to get more data" state, showing 'textMoreResearchNeeded'.
It should (if I'm reading the code right) go to the "find a ROM in a sentinel" state showing 'textWaitForResearch' once all research stations have been destroyed.

Maybe the lambda 'herStatus' is to blame. It doesn't appear to be set anywhere.
Regardless, Kate only shows the 'textMoreResearchNeeded' language at the Iocrym Control Point after the stations have been destroyed.
