Defend Balex objective in Family Jewel - nothing happening

Every single post on here has no solutions and it seems every topic ends with “anyone figured this out yet?”

I haven’t encountered any Jabbers yet, all enemies in the entire map are dead, but Balex just keeps typing away. Two service bots spawn in the room below surrounded by those dinosaurs.

I’ve reloaded a hundred times, died, restarted, reinstalled, replayed an entire new character, Fast traveled back to Sanctuary, the beginning of the map, another planet, completed other missions, replayed yet another character and STILL getting a dead-end on “Defend Balex” on Family Jewel.

yea that is an old bug. happen many time to me. usually fixed by quit (main menu) and reload
