I want to complete the quest the way the jackass scientist wants, which I thought meant keeping the queen alive and having him turn on some machine that makes all the remaining ants kill each other.

So I killed the 5 guardian ants and the robot, the ant queen is alive, but the scientest walks down and then runs away when he sees the queen. 

So what am I missing?  Am I supposed to hack the terminal myself (impossible I think - I need 50 science and I'm about 35 with all the bonuses I can muster).  Should I just kill the queen?  I'd really like to get all the ants to kill each other first...

You aren't supposed to kill the Robot. I don't know if he'll freak out like this if you do though.

Kill the guardians but NOT the robot, that's his assistant. If you saved after his death you might be boned. If you really are all screwed up, unlock the computer with a console command and send the pulse yourself.

Well his robot tried to kill me so I trashed it but so far I've been able to progress just fine. It's been awhile since I did that part of the quest but presuming said pulse is the one to make the ants suicide I'm not sure it's important he actually does it. I say that since he never did the pulse on my game but when I went surface side the boy talked like the ants suicided and the quest progressed just fine so unless it was a glitch on my game I think your fine.
grr i was warned for a topic that should b ingame....gess reality is cencured on faqs... -silverfaustx

When I finished that quest the first time, I walked with him down there and he ran off when the queen noticed ME and aggro'd.

I loaded an earlier save, waited outside the chamber, he walked in, sat down and went to work.

Once upon a time everything was lovely. That was before I had to deal with people.

Oops...  I just threw a few genades near the opening to take out the ants, robot was collateral damage.  He's lying in the radioactive pool making clanking noise, half-dead. 

I KILLED AN INNOCENT ROBOT!!!!!!  How will I live with myself.

Guess it's time to look at my save files and see if I get lucky...

Thanks everyone!

Why is the ant queen not hostile towards the doctor?

That did it!  Thanks!

The only thing I think I lost out on was the +10 science coat.  I got a fireimmunity injection, but didn't get his coat.

Thanks again.

You don't actually need to follow him there. Just go back up and speak to the kid.
So far 9 users pissed me off, here's another one:

The robot attacked me, so I killed him. I went back and talked to Lesko, got my injection and the coat. Then he ran off to the queen's room. Later Wilks said that the ants all killed each other. Not sure if they really did or not, as I killed them all prior to that.

Based on that, I doubt the robots state impacts the quest in any way.
