“Back to Vectera” is a Constellation Mission on STarfield and it follows right after “THE OLD NEIGHBORHOOD” in the Lodge at New Atlantis.

1. RETURN TO VECTERA

Mission text:
“Argos Extractors is packing up operations on Vectera, but there’s no word about Barrett. I need to go there and find out what happened.”


Fly to the Narion System. It’s north of Alpha Centauri. Land at “Argos Extractors Mining Outpost” on Vectera.

3. FIX THE COMMS COMPUTER

Mission text:
“Barrett is gone, captured by pirates. My only hope is that there might be some clue on where they went on the broken computer in the comms building.


Enter the nearby building. You can open the door by operating the switch in front of the doors. There is another switch inside.

Inside, look for Emergency Power Cells and pick them up. You’ll need them in a bit. There is one in a rack in the first room after the entrance hall:

There is another Emergency Power Cell in an office just left from that previous rack – before you go through the security door to the next area. Also pick up the “VECTERA CONTROL ROOM KEY” on the desk inside the keycard display.

Now go through the big orange door to the next area of the building.

On the other side of the door is the locked computer room you can open the door with the “VECTERA CONTROL ROOM KEY” that you’ve found in the previous office. To the right, before you enter the control room, are three slots for the Emergency Power Cells. You can already put in the two that you’ve found.

The third Emergency Power Cell is not in this building. You can either use your Security Skill on the computer or get the other Emergency Power Cell. There is one in the other building on the other side. Just exit this building again and enter the building on the other side. There is also a fourth one in one of the lockers.

You should now have enough Emergency Power Cells to access the computer. Open up the “Emergency Transmission”.

Return to Lin outside and talk to her. You can choose to recruit her at the end.

Mission text:
“I have the coordinates that should take me to the pirate ship that captured Barrett and Heller.”


At the Crashed Ship, you’ll find Heller. Talk to him. After the conversation, you can choose to recruit him, too.

8. LISTEN TO “EMERGENCY TRANSMISSION 02”

10. RESCUE BARRETT

Mission text:
“Heller survived, but Berrett has been captured by the Crimson Fleet again. I need to find him.”


Land on the site called “Ransacked Research Outpost”. Before you rescue Barrett, you can pick up the OUTPOST KEY. It’s at the center building on the very top terrace.

You can open a building with a white door with the Outpost Key.

Enter the underground compound through the green door at ground floor. Defeat the pirates inside.

11. RETURN TO THE LODGE

Mission text:
“Barrett is free. I should take him back to the Lodge.”


Travel back to the Lodge at New Atlantis and enter the Library. After Barrett talked to you, you can recruit him. This concludes the mission.
