SPOILERS

Before you can even attempt the quest, your fleet rank must be Fleet Lieutenant or higher. (Note that it is rare but possible to be unable to reach that rank. In that case, tough luck.)

Visit the commander of Point Juno, and prevent the Ares from destroying it. After saving Point Juno, accept the commander's request to recover the prototype from the wreck of CSC Europa. Do not keep the prototype for yourself, give it to the commander.

If your fleet rank is lower than Fleet Commander, raise it so you may be granted access to Admiral Decker at CSC Terra.

Visit CSC Terra to see Decker. He will give you a mission: kill Antarctica. CSC Antarctica may be found at the Dantalion system, located two systems away from the final system Heretic.

Once you find the Antarctica, you may try to destroy it yourself or not. If you choose the latter, Aquilas will spawn to attack and destroy the Antarctica. At that point, you can let the Aquilas kill the Antartica, kill the Aquilas and save Antarctica, or kill everything.

If you kill Antarctica without befriending Helios (and spawning Aquilas), you may get the Lamplighter archcannon from Decker at CSC Terra.

If you try to kill Antarctica without befriending Helios but fail and she gates out, Decker will demote you and deny you the Lamplighter.

If you befriend Helios, but let the Aquilas destroy the Antarctica, you may get the Lamplighter at CSC Terra if you are Fleet Captain (highest fleet rank). If your rank is still Fleet Commander, you have the chance to backtrack to another CSC, complete (kill Ares ship) missions until your reach Captain, then return to claim Lamplighter.

If you befriend Helios, then betray her and kill the Antartica (regardless if you kill Aquilas or not), you get nothing from Decker.

If you befriend Helios, and destroy the Aquilas, you may dock at Antarctica and get the Gem of Sacrifice from Helios. If Antarctica then gates out of the system (or you gate out first), the Ares at Heretic (and only at Heretic) become friendly and may offer a mission to help lower the quarantine. Meanwhile, if you visit Decker, he will demote you and deny you the Lamplighter.

The reward for successful completion of the Lamplighter quest is either Lamplighter or Gem of Sacrifice and friendly Ares at Heretic.
