Summary[edit | edit source]

Community Research (week 8) is the eighth mission introduced as Community Research and its purpose is helping Specialist Polo in their research of the freshly-seeded floras on the newly reformed biomes.

This is a time-limited mission and it was available for 14 days, starting from Visions 1.75 until 6 December 2018. The first part of the mission takes place on a planet called Nitan III with Bone Spire exotic biome in the Hekhac-Kikar system.

WARNING: It makes use of portal travel. Please do not forget to go back through the portal when you finished, or you will encounter Portal Interference messages.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Make contact with the Space Anomaly[edit | edit source]

With this mission set as the active mission, fly into space and Specialist Polo will contact the player through the communicator.

Specialist Polo

-{{ Friend! Traveller-friend! }}-

Polo physically bouncing with emotion, an intense brightness to their eyes - perhaps tears?
  • Listen

-{{ It has all lead here, friend! The coordinates we've pursued, the strange new seeds in the earth, the dimension-bridging echoes from other traveller-friends. It all aligns! An aftershock, booming through the stars! }}-
-{{ Hundreds of thousands of dormant planets, now wakened, yawning, bursting with new discoveries! }}-
-{{ I am transmitting coordinates for the epicentre of this galactic upheaval. There is freshly-seeded flora waiting to be discovered - flora of the strangest configuration... }}-

  • Accept

-{{ The boundaries are the thinnest here, friend. This world will most likely appear anomalous, perhaps broken. }}-
-{{ But such potential, such promise! }}-
-{{ If every iteration of traveller-friend ventures there, we may be able to consolidate more data than ever before... }}-

Visit the marked planet[edit | edit source]

A portal will be marked in the system where the player currently located. Due to it is a mission-related travel, the Portal Terminal will not require any recharge.

The portal yawns before me.
I find I have no need to access my exosuit's memory banks: Polo's final glyph sequence is scorched bright in the forefront of my mind, commited to my own organic memory.
  • Input Polo's Glyphs
  • Leave

Complete a botanical survey for Polo[edit | edit source]

After arriving to the other side of the portal, the mission objective will be updated, but the destination will not be indicated with an icon.

The player can use Analysis Visor to scan the local flora, and when seven discoveries are made, upload is not necessary, the mission objective will be updated.

Make contact with the Space Anomaly[edit | edit source]

The player will be contacted again through the communicator, or after using the starship's scanner.

Specialist Polo

-{{ How did you find the anomalous new world? Polo and Nada, we envy your travels. Let us see the data? }}-

  • Transmit data

-{{ Astonishing! These findings feel impossibly familiar. As though we dreamt this transmission in another time, or another space... }}-
-{{ I believe this journey has only just begun. The data we collect spans iterations other than our own, all funneled into Polo and Nada's humble anomalous home. }}-
-{{ My synthetic companion of metal and soul - it stirs! Its processors hunger for data. Come aboard! Look with two of your very own eyes! }}-

  • End transmission

Visit Polo's robotic companion[edit | edit source]

The Space Anomaly will warp into the player's current system, allowing it to be boarded it.

The door behind the Control Panel is accessible, where Quicksilver Synthesis Companion resides.

After speaking with the merchant NPC the mission objective will be updated.

(Optional) Collect more flora scan data, anywhere[edit | edit source]

The broadcast is amplified and the signal zone extended throughout the galaxy, allowing to scan floras on any planets.

If you turn in partial results, the following conversation takes place.

Specialist Polo

-{{ This marvellous data! Do you have more? The anomaly's databanks are wide open, glitching between this universe and the next. }}-

  • Transmit data
  1. Polo thanks me repeatedly, transferring a gift to my accounts. They quickly assess the display of their tablet device, then confirm that the Synthesis Bot is still responding energetically to the accumulated data. More discoveries would power it further.
  • End transmission
  1. -{{ Hail us with your scanner, friend, if you have more discoveries to transmit! }}-

After scanning 200 floras, the data limit is reached and the mission objective will be updated.

Make contact with the Space Anomaly[edit | edit source]

The player will be contacted again through the communicator, or after using the starship's scanner.

Specialist Polo

-{{ This iteration of the Synthesis Bot has almost reached capacity! I think this will be the final batch of data it can accept in this universe. }}-

  • Continue

-{{ Friend - this is all the research the anomaly has planned, for now. }}-
-{{ But let this not be a moment of sadness! Explore, fly, run, swim, journey! }}-
-{{ We will bring our home to you now, friend? }}-

  • Accept

Visit Polo's robotic companion[edit | edit source]

The Space Anomaly will warp into the player's current system, allowing it to be boarded it.

After speaking with the merchant NPC again, the mission will be completed.
