Talk To Sam Coe

Talk to Same Coe

You can start this quest immediately after adding the Artifact in the The Old Neighborhood quest as you can find Sam Coe in the Lodge's Garden area. Sam and his daughter, Cora, will be joining your ship as passengers until you reach Akila City.

Akila City

Akila City

Akila City is located in Cheyenne System. If you haven's explored every system along this route then try jumping into a closer system first then travel from there. Sam will accompany you throughout the quest, and your initial destination will be GalBank to retrieve his ancestor Solomon's maps.

How To Complete Job Gone Wrong

How to complete Job Gone Wrong

Upon your arrival at Akila City, you'll be stopped by an Akila Security Guard at the entrance who informs you that there is an ongoing issue at Galbank. Due to the presence of robbers, access to Solomon's maps will not be granted until this situation is resolved.

Talk to Daniel Blake
Talk to Daniel Blake and present yourself to negotiate with the robbers.

Starfield The Empty Nest
If you are able to Persuade the Bank Robbers to surrender you can report back to Daniel and he will give you your reward otherwise he will give you the Galbank Rear Door Key to take down the robbers and secure the Hostages.
Once you defeated or Persuaded them, report back to Daniel Blake outside the bank. You will get 150 XP and 3800 Credits plus unlock the Freestar Faction Mission: Deputized

Failing To Persuade The Bank Robbers To Surrender Does Not Affect The Rewards From Daniel

Take note that you need to reach at least 8 Persuasion Points in 3 Turns to successfully persuade them. If you can't convince them to surrender immediately, don't worry as it won't change the story much. You can even earn more credits by looting the bank and the robbers body once you defeat them. Making them give up quickly just shortens the Faction Mission so you can continue your progress with the The Empty Nest quest.

Sam will hint that the maps was from the earlier generation so its not gonna be on a slate but rather in paper. The map's location is not given, so look out for the Note For Sam as you go around and checking the lockers.
