Mission doesn't update until you approach the captain and the end of the tunnel downstairs at -2540, -930 in the same structure you encountered the 2 republic soldiers.
You finish this part of the quest by interacting with an Astromech Droid

For people who don't want to fart around with coordinates, it's the WEST (left) wing of the lower level, all the way in the back.

If you choose to let sergeant Kobbth live you'll get a mail from his wife

My husband is Sergeant Kobbeth of the Republic military. He told me an Imperial saved him from those horrible Esh-kha on Belsavis, then spared his life. I told him he should do something to thank you, but he said it would look bad for a Republic soldier to correspond with "the enemy." So I'm sending this message on his behalf.

I don't consider you "the enemy." In my eyes you're a hero. We can never repay your act of kindness, but I wanted to send you something to let you know we appreciate everything you did.

If you also play a charakter who is a Jedi, you can meet his wife and son in New Recruit.

You finish this part of the quest by interacting with a broken Astromech Droid(it becomes clickable after you get close to it) and its downstairs,same building as the republic soldiers :)

Yeah I didn't see a locator on him on the mission tracker just assumed that no mission I had done thus far didn't involve going only half-way into a cave, why would this one ...
