The Fallout Wiki guide claims that the quest That Lucky Old Sun will generate rewards from Rivas if you are "trusted" with him. How does one become that? I have tried multiple ways of directing power and none of them spawn any new dialogue options with him (or "The idiot" for that matter).

I think you have to select the right dialogue options with him before hand, then go send the power to the places that he says need it (I believe it's Freeside & somewhere else) Then go talk to him, if you've done it right you'll get Followers rep and a Big Book of Science. – shanodin Apr 13 '13 at 21:49

Getting "trusted" status with Rivas requires some specific dialog choices when you first speak to him:

Rivas will only give the player his [password] if the player gains his trust by professing to be peaceful (or at least not trying to get involved - both available if the courier states they only work for themselves), states that they want what he wants (must know Rivas is with the Followers, requiring a speech check or Confirmed Bachelor perk), or if the player claims to be with the Brotherhood of Steel. This may only be done on the first conversation.

(emphasis mine)

I knew I should have made my comment an answer :P – shanodin Apr 13 '13 at 22:26
You mention that this requires Confirmed Bachelor. Does this mean that having Black Widow as a female does not work in the same instance? – Yuuki Apr 14 '13 at 4:13
@Yawus, he has as particular orientation :) Both the quest page for Lucky Old Sun and his own page make specific mention of Confirmed Bachelor and no mention of Black Window. – agent86 Apr 14 '13 at 13:31
