Walkthrough Guide

Before Starting, Prepare Your Spaceship

There are lots of spaceship combats in this mission, so you will want to have your ship prepared. So before heading to Europa, you will want to go to your closest Ship Service Technician and get be ready.

The Entire Mission Is Bugged

There has been reports where the entire mission is glitching for some users. Like you can not hail the ships or you can not complete because Ikande is not in the Operations Center like he needs to be. So far there are no reports of the solution for these bugs, so you may want to wait till the game has an update.

Update And News (Ver. 1.7.33)

Hail The Astraea And Head To Enceladus

Hail the Astrea

If you want to avoid combat, you can simply Hail Astraea and they will tell you to head to Enceldaus where you can find the Ragana. Enceldaus in the Moon of Saturn in the Sol system.

Hail OR Attack The Ragana


Again you can avoid combat with the Ragana by simply having a conversation. It will help save you time and effort as well as if you are not good at ship combats then this is highly recommended.

Convince Dmitri To Kill Austin Or Find A Way To Spare


Dmitri is the captain of the ship. You must either persuade him to kill Austin or find a way to spare the guy.

Use the table below to persuade Dmitri to kill Austin.

Persuade Dmitri

+2Rake means nothing to you. Kill him and you're free.
+1Don't be a fool. The Crimson Fleet are not to be messed with.
+1A leader has to make hard decisions. Don't make the wrong one.
+1Kill Rake. The longer you delay, the angrier I get.

Fend Off The Ecliptic Fighters

ecliptic fighters

After you undock from The Ragana and head back to Astraea, you will be in a spaceship combat that you can not ignore. There are a total of 4, so if your ship isn't ready, then head to the nearest Ship Service Technician and get prepared.

Report To The Vigilance

After the battle, you will first visit the Astraea and report the outcome. Then you will need to go back to the Vigilance and report there as well.

Head To The Key

The Key

The Key is located in the Kryx System. This is a Crimson Fleet territory so you will be surrounded by criminals. You will speak to Naeva who will introduce you to several leaders of the group and also show you around the ship.

Speak To Delgado


Delgado is the main leader of the group and he is the main person you will be working with starting this Crimson Fleet questline.
