It's January 15th and I finally got the chance to work on this quest. It's still bugged on step 5. I completed Similuation: Safeguard several times and the quest never progressed. I also red from other responses in this post, and deleted the quest, hoping I'd be able to pick it back up from the tower kiosk or Banshee, but the quest doesn't show up for either of them. This is extremely frustrating.
