This quest is listed as repeatable, but it does not actually appear to be.

This quest is currently not repeatable, as it is designated. It's not an incorrect label from Torhead, as it shows as repeatable in-game as well when you pick it up. Hopefully this will be fixed in one of the latest patches.

You have to advance a few missions in the planetary questline (that starts on the Orbital Station) up to Fifth Time's the Charm before questgiver Lord Ferrid will talk to you.

I solo'd this as a level 44 healing operative with ease. It took two kills of the center strong mob to get the codes to drop. Then I went into the building close by with the quest table. My pet and I took out the strong first, then focused on the elite. Easy XP.

The mob that drops the Access Codes is random. Any mob in the area can drop them. The gear reward choices for BH Powertech were:

The other descriptions above seem to be slightly incorrect.

The mob you must kill is not the one in the center, but instead it's one called "Republic Rifleman" and is part of two small groups to the side that you can easily solo. The groups consist of the Strong Republic Rifleman as well as a Strong droid and an Elite "Prison Gunman." One kill was all it took, then you can do step number 2 as described.

Rewards for BH were a choice of 3x Belsavis Commendations, a Blue ilvl 42 Class 5 Lockbox, or:
Ultrachrome War Helmet
Ultrachrome Onslaught Helmet

@Morgaledh: At 04.02.2015 it is not repeatable again.
After turning it in, Lord Ferrid has the "Do-it-tomorrow-again-sign" above his head, but when I returned a few days later, he has no Questsign anymore and when I talk to him, he says " My jailers deserved torments and you gave it to them." (free translation, I'm not playing in english)

Just soloed it as a tank at lvl 41 just cuz i lvled twice that day and thought "ill go ahead and grab that"

Solo'd this as a lvl 41 Assassin. Sneak around the perimeter of the compound, and in each group, Mind Trap the elite, kill the silver-elites, and then Force Cloak if you can't take on the elite. Once you have the key, sneak into the small hut, trap the elite, kill the silver, Force Cloak, re-trap. Now that you're out of combat, you can simply loot the mission objective.

Rewards were:
3x Belsavis Commendation
1x Reinforced Vine-silk Headgear
1x Veiled Vine-silk Headgear
1x Jeweled Prototype Storage Box

Rewards for Marauder were a choice of 3x Belsavis Commendations, a blue lock-box or:
Gilded Ultrachrome Headgear
Resilient Durachrome Headgear

Not certain when they fixed it, but in-game the quest now seems to be repeatable.
By speedmaster at 2012-01-21 21:54:08

Quite easy to solo as an operative, probably most classes could solo it.

There is a strong mob with two small droids with 1.5k each and the strong drops an item which is part of the mission.

The next item is guarded by a strong and an elite, I am unsure whether this item is clickable in combat.

By Glocken at 2012-01-24 19:06:04

The strong mob for the second objective spawns in the center of the compound, and seemingly must be killed there to drop the quest item. Three times I pulled them to the side and killed him, with no drop. Final time, in the center, and it dropped.

The final objective is a table in one of the huts guarded by a strong and elite. Both must be killed, since you cannot use the table while in combat.
