The Journey to Meridian Mass Effect: Andromeda Mission
Type: Priority Ops
The Archon's map shows the way to Meridian. However, this issue affects the entire Andromeda Initiative, and leadership should be consulted before proceeding further.
To begin The Journey to Meridian you must first complete Hunting the Archon.
Mission objectives of The Journey to Meridian
1. Speak to the leaders on the Nexus
Go to Director Tann Office on Nexus - Operations.
At the end of the meeting you will be informed that your sister/brother has woken up and will move automatically to Hyperion - Cryo Bay.
"Time limited" decision: Hug your sister/brother (if you told her a truth about your father) or Comfort.
One more memory unlocked for Ryder Family Secrets mission.
2. Discuss your options with the other Pathfinders
They will be waiting for you in Tech Lab - Nexus Docks.
3. Integrate Ghost Storm technology with Tempest to help other Pathfinders
Meridian - "Khi Tasira" to the kett - will be difficult to infiltrate. The other pathfinders and the Ghost Storm technology will be critical to success. Using Ghost Storm, the other pathfinders' ships can mimic the Tempest's energy signatures and draw the kett's attention.
Go back to the Tempest and build it.
4. Gather the crew in the Tempest's meeting room to prepare for the mission
Use the Tempest's vidcon to call crew meeting.
7. Survey the drop zone
Explore Meridian to learn more about how it controls the vault network, and how you might be able to utilize this knowledge.
Use this console to activate the bridge.
Go forward and interface with another console.
Exploration of the Remnant network system has revealed that Meridian is controlled by a nearby central command hub. Activating that command hub will allow Meridian as a whole to be activated, which will reset the entire vault system.
8. Access the tower in the exploration sector
It's located in the northern (top of the map) part of the Meridian.
8.1. Activate the tower in the exploration sector
Go to the map marker, and try to interface with exploration systems console. It will activate some kind of puzzle which you need to solve.
8.1.1. Reroute power to the main console
Puzzle is quite simple. There are four consoles, two on the left side, and two on the right side, which you need to click in correct order. You can use your scanner and follow the "yellow line". Correct order is:
(1) the closest console on the right
(2) the closest console on the left
(3) a little further console on the right
(4) a little further console on the right
9. Access the tower in the research sector
It's located in the southern (bottom of the map) part of the Meridian.
There is Remnant Data Core in the nearby, locked room. To open its door you need to find and activate the remnant console shown in the picture below.
Then you can enter the room and pick up the core.
There is also a hidden room locked by Remnant decryption puzzle with two containers and scan object inside it. This room is "below". To get to access you need to jump down twice and then solve the puzzle.
10. Enter Meridian's central command
It's located in the east-central part of the Meridian. Be prepared to fight many opponents along the way.
12. Eliminate the Archon's Sword and the kett forces
This Remnant station was only one part of Meridian - a control module of some kind. The Remnant defenses activated from this point have made short work of most kett, although some remain to threaten the squad.
After completing The Journey to Meridian you will get or will be able to get Meridian: The Way Home.
