Issue #32444: Quest to speak to Nick about Shaun does not trigger after rescuing him.

After rescuing Nick Valentine from Vault 114, dialogue proceeds as normally, except the quest "Getting a Clue" is not given.
When going to Diamond City and entering Nick's office, the scene and dialogue with him and Ellie plays as it should, but then when Nick asks me to take a seat so we can discuss the case, he sits in the chair at the back of the office, and cannot be spoken to.
Shooting him, reloading the game, restarting the quest, nothing works. It's quite literally game-breaking, and I'm honestly surprised hasn't been reported or fixed earlier on.

I've never had this happen to me in many playthroughs, but looking at the Fandom Wiki page for "Getting a Clue" I see it listed under "Bugs", only with "verification overdue" - I'm guessing that means very few players have had this happen to them, which makes it hard to track down and fix. I did, however, confirm that it's possible to sit in that chair at the back of the office myself before Ellie gives me the reward for rescuing Nick, so if you have a save after rescuing Nick but before entering his office, you could see if that works for you to force Nick to sit in the correct chair instead.

Otherwise, it might help the devs if you can provide them with additional potentially-relevant details like choices you made in the previous quest - did you talk to Ellie before rescuing Nick or go straight to Park Street Station? When facing Skinny Malone and Darla, what did you say to them? (and if Darla didn't leave peacefully, did she survive?) When you got to street level, did you follow Nick or agree to meet him in Diamond City?
