Red Tape Runaround – Starfield Miscellaneous Mission Walkthrough

“Red Tape Runaround” is the follow-up Miscellaneous Mission of “RED TAPE BLUES” on Cydonia, Mars. After I’ve got the job at Deimos, let’s go to work!

1. REPORT TO WORK FOR PETER BRENNAN

Mission text:
“I’m now Peter Brennan’s executive assistant. I should go report to him at the Deimos Staryards Corporate Office on the main floor of Cydonia.”


Go back to the office building on the top floor of Cydonia, Mars and talk to Peter Brennan.

2. SPEAK WITH GOVERNOR HURST

Mission text:
“Mr. Brennan is expecting a personal shipment. He expects me to find it before he’ll let me access his computer. He suggested checking with Governor Hurst, as his previous assistants did.”


Governor Hurst is just one door next to the office building, on the top floor of Cydonia. It’s next to the Trade Authority room. Speak with him.

3. FIND THE STOLEN SHIP

Mission text:
“Governor Hurst will release Mr. Bennan’s ship if I do him a favor first. He wouldn’t tell me exactly why, but I am to find and destroy Hurst’s stolen spaceship.”


Open your starmap. Conveniently, there is a mission marker on a ship symbol in the same system at Umbriel.


Just when you enter the orbit of Umbriel, Governor Hurst’s Ship will call you. You can either lie and board or destroy it straight away. I would suggest to board.

4. DEAL WITH THE PIRATES

Mission text:
“I boarded Governor Hurst’s ship. Things escalated with the pirates. Now I need to deal with them, one way or another.”


First of all, destroying the ship is optional. Just get rid of the pirates first. In the conversation you can try to persuade or attack. If you succeed at persuading, he will offer you an incriminating letter if they can keep the ship. Either deal or no deal…

5. (OPTIONAL) SEARCH FOR MORE CLUES

Mission text:
“I’ve finished with Hurst’s ship. Now I need to tell him the job’s done, so he’ll release Mr. Brennan’s shipment and I can finally move on with my task to help the miners.”


In case you have decided to attack the pirates:
Pick up the incriminating letter from the pirate that threatened you. Then find your way to the very top of the ship. There is the deceased Sylvija Schloss. She’s carrying a letter called “THIS IS IT“.

6. (OPTIONAL) DESTROY HURST’S SHIP

Mission text:
“I’ve finished with Hurst’s ship. Now I need to tell him the job’s done, so he’ll release Mr. Brennan’s shipment and I can finally move on with my task to help the miners.”


You can get back to your ship and shoot at Hurst’s Ship until it is destroyed or you just leave it there… You can’t take it over though.

7. RETURN TO HURST

Mission text:
“I’ve finished with Hurst’s ship. Now I need to tell him the job’s done, so he’ll release Mr. Brennan’s shipment and I can finally move on with my task to help the miners.”


Return to Hurst in his office at Cydonia and talk to him.

8. DELIVER THE PACKAGE TO PETER

Mission text:
“I have Mr. Brennan’s shipment. I need to return to him. Then, he’ll allow me to access his computer.”


Go back to the office building to talk to Peter Brennan.

9. APPROVE THE EQUIPMENT REQUEST

Mission text:
“I have Mr. Brennan’s shipment. I need to return to him. Then, he’ll allow me to access his computer.”


Use Peter Brennan’s computer on the desk to login and approve the request. You can also deal with other requests in the “Requests” folder, if you like. This will conclude this Mission. The follow-up “RED TAPE RECLAMATION” starts.
