Is Somah a Ghost?[edit source]

I don't know if it's just a bug or what, but after i had Somah repair all my gear, i used a cryo grenade on her immediately afterwards to pickpocket my caps back (along with her ammo) and ever since then i can't pickpocket her instead i enter dialogue with her, i can't even attack her (i wasted like 9 cryo grenades trying to freeze her) i even tried shooting her point blank with the alien disintegrator, and yet nothing happened, no damage, it didn't go through her, and she didn't even react to it... so is she set to "ghost" like mayor maccready after a bit into the quest line or what? p.s. i'm on the "among the stars" quest if that's relevant...

Could be a bug. If it's reproducable, go ahead and post it on the article page and add {{verify|~~~~~}} at the end of the entry. If it is not reproducable, it is most likely a one-time glitch and not noteworthy.--Gothemasticator 20:39, April 30, 2010 (UTC)

Mysterious Stranger Dialogue[edit source]

Player: "If we're lucky, a friend of mine might show up to help."

Somah: "Uhh... Okay... So, does that mean you're in?" 16:37, July 5, 2010 (UTC)

Other interactions?[edit source]

The following really seems more like strategy than interaction of the NPC with the player (per VA:LAYC), so I moved it here for discussion.

  • In the Engineering Core, once she is able to repair items, you can throw cryo grenades at her and she will freeze, allowing you to pickpocket the caps that you gave her for repairing your items. This makes looting the ship of weapons much more profitable, as you can have many 100% weapons without having a repair skill of 100. Elliot will make cryo grenades for you; she does not become hostile if you throw one at her or pickpocket her. The Paralyzing Palm perk can be used in a similar manner.

Anyone else care to opine? Thanks! — UncleBubba T @ C ) 20:18, October 16, 2011 (UTC)

Sounds like strategy to me. Go ahead an remove it. Either way, it will stay here on the talk page, so it's not exactly lost information. --Kastera (talk) 02:41, October 17, 2011 (UTC)

Voice actor (redux)[edit source]

I know there's already a discussion, but it had been archived before I could add my two cents.

I'm pretty sure (although not 100%) that Somah is voiced by Linda Kenyon ( (aka the female elves in Oblivion (and the Female Dumners in Morrowind)). The idea came to me while playing Oblivion after going through Mothership Zeta.

Bethesda is known to hire local actors to do the voice acting and Kenyon has been hired more than once by them, so it's a possibility. POLE7645 02:57, October 21, 2011 (UTC)
