Vindicaar Matrix Core

So I need a lot of help. Lol. I’ve completed the ‘The Assault Begins’ so now I’m just continuing to do quests in Argus. There’s a quest in particular that I can’t get to, ‘Forming a Bond’ from Romuul. Was there a quest that was supposed to lead up to that? Because I can’t activate the Vindicaar Matrix Core. It queues the activation but nothing happens. Please send help :weary:
