That Lucky Old Sun: PYTHON may be utilized to repair the wiring and bring the auxiliary generator online. A Science skill of 45 or a Poseidon Energy employee ID card (which can be found in a room next to a skeleton, behind an average locked door) is required to activate it. After activation it will move towards the generator, repair it, and return back to an inactive state beside the generator. If the generator is repaired, attempting to activate PYTHON will result in a message saying there is nothing left in the room to repair.
PCPlaystation 3Xbox 360 PYTHON can be destroyed each time one enters the room, making it an easy way to farm scrap metal or complete certain challenges. It won't show up on the compass, nor it be targeted with V.A.T.S. Turning PYTHON to ash or goo will destroy it permanently. [verified]
PCPlaystation 3Xbox 360 Activating PYTHON after fixing the generator may result in Python heading to the generator and attempting to fix it anyway. After this occurs, a second message will appear informing the player that the wire has been repaired. [verified]
