1. Signal Point in Space Walkthrough

This quest is automatically gained after speaking with Sophia Akande during the Long Distance quest after turning in Phineas Welles.

Speak with Everett Gill in Stellar Bay on Monarch. He’ll tell you where you need to go to find the broadcasting station on Devil’s Peak. If you ask about getting some help, he’ll tell you to find Nyoka in The Yacht Club in Stellar Bay.

Nyoka is currently drunk and you’ll need to finish her quest Passion Pills in order to get her to help you. Once you do so you’ll gain 24,000 XP.

Once finished with Passion Pills you will need to head south from Stellar Bay to Fallbrook. The Devil’s Peak Station is a good ways northwest of Fallbrook, so it will take you a while to get there and you will likely do several other quests along the way.

Once you arrive at Devil’s Peak Summit speak with Joy Voivode regarding the relay tower she is guarding. Signal Point in Space will update with a note that you may be able to convince the C3 mercenary company to help you.

They are down the hill a short ways. You can Persuade (20) them not to kill you if you said you emerged from the tunnel, and then you can ask them to help you clear the Marauders from the Station. Additionally, if you inquire further about their boss you will obtain the Task: Mandibles of Doom.

If you complete this Task then you can convince the C3 mercenaries to help you attack the Marauders if you can get the main gate open.

Head the entrance of the Devils’ Peak Station and defeat the Marauders there. There are a lot so be careful. If you have a minute head northeast and loot the Unique Weapon: Hammer of Olympus at Sundered Rock. Then head up the ramp and head into Devil’s Peak Station.

Defeat the Marauders inside and then speak to the man via the Intercom, whom you will find out Hiram. If Nyoka is in your party he will recognize her. Hiram will ask you to wipe out the Marauders in exchange for double the going rate. He doesn’t want his broadcasting equipment destroyed. There is a Lockpicking (55) door nearby that has some loot inside, so consider picking it if you can. Then double back and head up the elevator that is now open.

You’ll need to kill all the Marauders here. If you finished the Mandibles of Doom task and convinced the C3 mercenaries to help you, they will help you wipe out the Marauders. Use the Intercom to open the door and speak to Hiram Blythe. You’ll gain 2,500 Bit Cartridges. Ask him about the Information Broker and you’ll gain an Achievement/Trophy and 16000 XP.

Hiram will ask you to jump start the tower by heading outside and flipping a switch. There is a terminal on the way that you can read some backstory about the Station if you wish. Once you flip the switch a ship will crash land nearby and Graham and Sanji will argue over what to do with it, and the Faction Quest: Canid’s Cradle will trigger.

Head back inside and speak to Hiram and tell him you need to shutdown illegal broadcasts. You can shut the place down but this will require you to attack and kill everyone left in the station including Hiram. You can Persuade (60) or Lie (60) to get him to work for Sophia Akande, or you can just tell him that will work. This will net you 24000 XP. In order to convince him you’ll have to have shut down the boadcasts at Stellar Bay and Amber Heights by completing the quests: BOLT with His Name, Errors Unseen, The Commuter and Pay for the Printer.

Return to Sophia and let her know what’s happened. She will be pleased if you brokered an alliance with Hiram. You will gain 2500 Bit Cartridges, 96000 XP and Reputation up with The Board. You will then watch a video from the Chairman about how Halcyon is running out of food and that they will freeze people to keep population down, while the brightest figure out how to solve the problem.

If you ask Sophia about what’s happening and pass a Perception check then you will learn that the research on Roseway was to develop and appetite supressent to keep people from eating too much. Sophia does not like the Bureaucracy, and is not a fan of the board. If you sided with the Adelaide McDevitt on Edgewater she will tell you that you need to wipe out the town and there can’t be any survivors. She’s sent a group of robots that can be set to malfunction and kill everyone. This will begin the quest Foundation.
