Note: Ryder can have a number of interesting conversations with Maariko about the angaran space program and possible lost colonies. It is advised to speak with Maariko about these subjects (or any other subjects) before finishing this mission as the final choice can potentially stop Ryder from talking with Maariko.
Pathfinder Ryder receives +50 for scanning the navpoint.
Suvi detects something in the Sabeng system. It's in the Scourge. There is no satellite but there are traces of radioactive particles which might have come from a small starship's thrusters.
Suvi detects something in the Joba system. It's an angaran Comm Buoy, with a message from someone else looking for the satellites, possibly the other team Maariko sent. The message includes a navpoint that the team is headed to next.
Suvi detects something in the Eriksson system. It's the wreckage of an angaran ship following those who stole the satellites. It turns out to be scavengers stealing the satellites. When the angaran ship caught up, the angarans fought back, and the angara ran into the Scourge. The transponder ID for the scavengers leads to Kadara Port.
Travel To Kadara Port Edit
After Ryder has landed on Kadara, Suvi will contact Ryder, saying she has traced the navpoint to somewhere in the Kadara badlands.
Find The Satellite Scavenger Hideout Edit
Defeat The Satellite Scavengers Edit
When Ryder has taken out the defenders, and the reinforcements that arrive via airship, the next objective is given.
Find The Missing Satellites Edit
Examining the Shipping Crate reveals that Ryder was too late to retrieve the satellites; they have already been chopped to parts. The Tempest retrieves the parts so they can be transported to Aya. To make it worse, the scavengers were all Initiative exiles, which won't look good to the angara.
There are a number of lootable containers located in and around the two buildings. There is one on the roof of the Shipping Crate building.
Return To Maariko Edit
Return to Maariko on the Docks on Aya. Ryder can choose to tell Maariko the truth about who killed his search crew and stole the satellites, or lie to him.
Note: If Ryder chooses to tell Maariko the truth, any further conversations with Maariko are not possible.
If Ryder tells the truth:
If Ryder lies:
- +530 XP
- +73 AVP
- +5% Kadara viability
