The majority of side quests in The Outer Worlds are simple. Speak with an NPC, follow the objectives, done. Make sure when you are attempting a specific quest, that it is selected in your journal. You can only track one quest at a time, so you want to ensure you’re chasing the correct markers.
Foundation Quest Guide
Foundation is one of the Main Quests in The Outer Worlds. Main Quests are those that must be completed in order to advance the main story and progress the game.
Use the Termination Protocol
Adjutant Akande has a number of Spacer’s Choice-brand automechanicals waiting at the Edgewater landing pad. She needs you to travel to the Emerald Vale Geothermal Power Plant and send the termination protocol from a terminal. The termination protocol will order the automechanicals to wipe out everyone in Edgewater.
Deal with the Automechanicals in Edgewater
You sent the kill command, and the automechanicals should be attacking Edgewater now. Sophia wants you to go back to Edgewater and clean out the remaining automechanicals.
This quest is obtained if you removed Reed from power during the Comes Now The Power quest and completed the Signal Point in Space quest.
This quest is also available if you complete Lost Signal by obtaining it during the quest The City and the Stars.
Travel to Edgewater Landing Pad and fast travel to the Geothermal Power Plant. Head inside and speak to Captain Hogarth. You can Persuade (65) him, Lie (65) him or Lie (25) him if you have the Constables Badge. Head forward and use the terminal at the nav marker and set the automechanicals to attack the citizens of Edgewater (default) or themselves (New Target). Then execute the command. Either way they’ll kill the citizens if you haven’t done?
Fast travel to Edgewater if you set the mechanicals to attack the citizens, they will all be dead and you’ll need to wipe out the mechanicals. Once finished travel back to Sophia. You’ll gain?? XP, 2500 Bit Cartridges and Positive Reputation with The Board. You will also gain the quest Kept Secret But Not Forgotten. You will also gain the Ludwig Was Right Trophy/Achievement for doing this.
