Walkthrough Guides

Speak With Chief Sugiyama

First Contact Chief Sugiyama

Speak with Chief Sugiyama in Paradiso on Porima II. He explains about the distress call was to get an outside source to investigate the massive, unknown spacecraft near Porrima. Despite its non-hostile appearance, communication attempts have failed. You will need to prioritize discreet diplomacy and report your findings to Paradiso's CEO, Oliver Campbell.

Hail The Unidentified Ship

First Contact Chief Unidentified Ship
First Contact Chief Unidentified Ship

Prepare to take off to Porrima II Orbit and hail the Unidentified Ship. Due to the poor quality of the Outbound Transmission call, you'll need to dock instead to talk to them clearly.

Dock With The Ship And Enter

The ship doesn't seem hostile so you will be able to dock easily. So slowly approach the ship and dock as usual.

Speak With The Ship's Captain

First Contact Chief Unidentified Ship Captain Brackenridge

Enter the Cargo Bay where you will be welcomed by Captain Diana Brackenridge who is accompanied by Dr. Mabhuti Da Costa. She will briefly explain the situation and ask to discuss the matter in more details further inside.

Follow Captain Brackenridge

As you follow Captain Brackenridge, she will tell you about her ancestor Rupert Brackenridge, who researched the likelihood of Earth to have an extinction-level that might render it uninhabitable so the ship vessel, Constant, was also made in hopes to carry generations of human to another planet like Earth to preserve humanity.

Speak With Captain Brackenridge

First Contact  Captain Diana

Once you reach the bridge, talk to Captain Diana again. Since previous communications were unsuccessful. You will be tasked to be a diplomat emissary to negotiate regarding the planet which Captain Diana claims is rightfully theirs.

Negotiate With Oliver Campbell

First Contact Negotiate With Oliver

Return to Paradiso and take the Elevator up to the Executive Floor. Keep in mind that you won't be able to enter the meeting room until you've spoken to the receptionist, Keavy. Once you've done that, proceed to where Oliver is conversing with Balam and Sima about the resort project. Approach Oliver to provide your report and engage in discussions to determine the most suitable course of action for the current situation.

You Will Need To Choose What You Think Will Be The Best Deal

ChoicePros & Cons
Settlement Deal Pros: They will be permitted to resettle in Paradiso.
Cons: They will need to work to clear all of their debts before being allowed to leave. Materials are also required for the new facilities for the colonists.
Buy Grav Drive Pros: Upgrade their ship with Grav Drive and give them an updated Starmap to find a new home.
Cons: You will need to shoulder the cost as their currency may not be compatible.
Destroy ShipPros: You will not spend huge amount of credits or gather resources.
Cons: You will need to destroy the ship that will kill Diana and the others inside it.

Companion Affinity Is Also Affected

First Contact Companion

Choosing the settlement deal or opting to destroy the ship may lead you to gain Self-Doubt and disapproval from your current companion. It's important to make a thoughtful choice if you aim to increase your affinity to unlock romance options with your companion.

Speak With Captain Brackenridge

First Contact Captain

Head back to ECS Constant. From the Cargo Bay, follow the Command Bay signs until you reach the previous location where you spoke with Captain Brackenridge. You can find her inside the Captains Quarters.

You Will Need To Gather Materials For The Settlement Deal

You will need to acquire some resource materials before the ECS Constant colonist settle in Paradiso. You can use your Persuasion skill to Persuade Captain Brackenridge to provide some from the ship.

  • Gather Lithium x10
  • Gather Iron x80
  • Gather Sealant x20
  • Gather Fiber x40

Speak With Daisuke

First Contact Daisuke

If you were able to persuade Captain Brackenridge, you can get the materials from Daisuke at the Mess Hall. It won't be that much, but it will quite help in minimizing the number of materials you'll need to get.

  • Sealant x8
  • Fiber x15
  • Iron x30
  • Lithium x4

Gather Materials
