Unearthed – Starfield Constellation Mission Walkthrough

“Unearthed” is the follow-up Constellation Mission of “IN THEIR FOOTSTEPS“. After tracking down the final Unity planet in the riddle, you’ll find the Hunter and the Emissary on the “Scorpius”. The Emissary will give you the key to a base on Luna – the moon.

1. GO TO NOVA GALACTIC RESEARCH STATION

Mission text:
“The Emissary has given me a key to a base on Luna, Earth’s Moon, saying I’ll learn more about the Artifacts if I investigate.”


Fly to the Earth’s moon in the Sol System. There is a marker for the Nova Galactic Research Station on the moon. Land there.

2. INVESTIGATE THE RESEARCH STATION

Mission text:
“The Emissary has given me a key to a base on Luna, Earth’s Moon, saying I’ll learn more about the Artifacts if I investigate.”


With the key, you can now enter the base.

3. COLLECT ALL THE SLATES (OPTIONAL)

Mission text:
“The Emissary has given me a key to a base on Luna, Earth’s Moon, saying I’ll learn more about the Artifacts if I investigate.”


If you want to collect the slates, here they are:
Slate 1 is just in the first room when you enter the base. It’s on top of a beige box.


Behind the previous beige box is a locker room. Open them all. Moon Base Slate 3 is in one of them.


From Slate 3 you can go upstairs and enter the next room from there. Just at the back is a desk with Slate 6.


Now go downstairs. On the desk next to the broken wall TV is a slate holder with Slate 2 in it.


Go to the other room on ground floor with the training equipment and the kitchenette. There’s a slate holder with Slate 5 in it.


Go over to the other side of the room with the training equipment. There is a small bedroom with Slate 4

4. INVESTIGATE THE RESEARCH STATION

Mission text:
“The Emissary has given me a key to a base on Luna, Earth’s Moon, saying I’ll learn more about the Artifacts if I investigate.”


After collecting all the slates, go back to the ground floor computer station and interact with it. Read the file “Project Prism Launch”.

5. PLAY THE RECORDING ON THE ROOF

Mission text:
“The Emissary has given me a key to a base on Luna, Earth’s Moon, saying I’ll learn more about the Artifacts if I investigate.”


Get back outside and on the roof of the building. Play the recording at the antenna.

6. GO TO NASA

Mission text:
“The first Grav Drive was developed with the help of NASA, on Earth. I need to find out how this is connected with the Artifacts.”


Travel to Earth. There is a landing site called “NASA Launch Tower.”.

7. FIND A WAY INSIDE

Mission text:
“The first Grav Drive was developed with the help of NASA, on Earth. I need to find out how this is connected with the Artifacts.”


Head towards the blue mission marker. There is a locked security door at ground floor. For it to work again, pick up one of the yellow Emergency Power Cells on the floor and put it into the empty slot in the Power Receptacle at the wall. But that’s not really the way through. Climb up where the Power Receptacle is on the wall.


You can climb further up there.


You get to the first ruined floor.


At the back is a small staircase that you can use to get higher up. Follow the staircase as long as you can. You will have to jump over gaps in the floor sometimes.


You’ll get to a higher ruined area. With the first room that you can enter.

8. ENTER NASA

Mission text:
“The first Grav Drive was developed with the help of NASA, on Earth. I need to find out how this is connected with the Artifacts.”


Exit this room at the other side. There are two exits you can take. Now you can reach an elevator but it needs power!


Follow the cables on the floor to a room that is locked. Enter it with the NASA Access Code.


Here you have to insert another Emergency Power Cell. Either you picked the additional one up earlier on ground floor, or you can pick one up on this floor. Put it into the slot on the wall, then use the elevator to go up to the NASA Launch Facility.

9. FIND INFORMATION ABOUT NASA

Mission text:
“The first Grav Drive was developed with the help of NASA, on Earth. I need to find out how this is connected with the Artifacts.”


Go to the mission marker and use the computer to read the “Delivery from Mars” folder.

10. FIND INFORMATION ABOUT THE MARTIAN SAMPLE

Mission text:
“The first Grav Drive was developed with the help of NASA, on Earth. I need to find out how this is connected with the Artifacts.”


Exit the room through the door into a cave like environment. Go down into the cave. There is another room on the other side to enter.


You’ve reached the NASA visitor center.


Cross the whole room. On the other side is a bathroom with the information you need: Judith – Personal Recording

11. FIND INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROTOTYPE GRAV DRIVE

Mission text:
“The first Grav Drive was developed with the help of NASA, on Earth. I need to find out how this is connected with the Artifacts.”


The bathroom is also half in a cave. Follow the cave path down to find a way to the mission marker. Follow the corridor down there all the way to the back to find a door into a new area.


All the exits seems to be blocked except a door one level up. Go through there.


Follow the corridor down to a security door that you can open with the panel that needs power to operate. Open the nearby door. There is a power switch that you can interact with to solve this problem.


Open the door to follow the corridor down to a next area. There are a couple of locks you can pick here to loot a bit. But inside the second room, the one with the advanced lock, there is the NASA Maintenance Key. There is also another Emergency Power Cell in a locker here.


Now go downstairs. There is a red security door that needs an Emergency Power Cell inserted at the back (see screenshot). If you don’t have a power cell. There is one here, lying on the floor of this level. Now you can open the security door and go through.


Follow the corridor and the staircase up one floor. Now you get into the big room you saw before. There are a couple of Turrets here to take care of and a nasty level 50+ robot. This room also has a door (behind the turrets) that requires power.


Follow the cables from that switch to a power box on a wall. The switch is on the other side though. You can pick the lock of the nearby door. If you can’t lockpick, go through the door next to the door that needs power. There is a thick, disconnected cable going that way.


You can now turn on the power at the switch. The door has now power and you can go through the big gate further down.


In the next room, use the computer on the table and read the Access Station Logs.


Continue on through one of the two doors. They both lead to an area called B1. There is a door with an expert lock and a staircase down. The locked office has an emergency door with pins. If you cut those you have a shortcut to the place we need to go but I take the staircase for now.


As soon as you start to walk down you’ll float. Continue to follow the mission marker to a red door with a switch at the bottom. Go through.


Here you can use the Maintenance Key on one of the doors. We’ve picked that up earlier. If you don’t have it, just go to the nearby big elevator shaft and float up one level.


One level up, use the computer at the mission marker. On the same desk you can also pick up a Maintenance Key if you don’t have it yet. But for now use the computer and read all about the Prototype Drive and the Access logs.

12. RELEASE THE ARTIFACT

Mission text:
“The original Grav Drive was based around an Artifact. The Artifact is still here, connected to the prototype Grav Drive.”


Press the button on the device that is next to the computer to release the artifact.


Now Gravity is working again and you have to find a normal way down. Good thing you picked up the Maintenance Key to open the door and use the staircase down. Get to the artifact and take it.

13. LEAVE NASA

Mission text:
“I have the Artifact from Earth, but the Emissary and Hunter have arrived on the surface and want to talk.”


Head back up. But Starborn will attack all the way.


Now Gravity is working again and you have to find a normal way down. Good thing you picked up the Maintenance Key to open the door and use the staircase down. Get to the artifact and take it.


On the way back up and out, the Starborn will attack you. At some stage, you will be coming into a room where you have to supply yet another door with power. Follow the cables to the power Receptacle input box. The energy power cell to use is just on the bottom by the Power Receptacle. Just put the power cell in to provide the door with power.


Follow the mission marker to the elevator and go back to the NASA Launch Tower.

13. TALK TO THE EMISSARY

Mission text:
“The original Grav Drive was based around an Artifact. The Artifact is still here, connected to the prototype Grav Drive.”


Talk to the Emissary at the bottom of the tower. This will finish “Unearthed”. You have to complete “FINAL GLIMPSES” to continue.
