MEA Journal - Tempest
Professor Herik from the Nexus tech labs has asked you to make a home for a young pyjak aboard the Tempest.


Prerequisite: A Better Beginning

Once Ryder has access to the Tempest after fulfilling the relevant instructions in the mission above, read emails to find one from Professor Herik. Acknowledging the email will add the mission to the journal.

Note: This mission is only available in the Deluxe or Super Deluxe editions of Mass Effect: Andromeda.


Pick up the pyjak from the Nexus docking bays

After reading the email from Professor Herik, travel to the Nexus Docking Bay and investigate the northern corner near the general merchant. You will find a container labeled Pyjak. Examine the container to continue the mission.

Visit the pyjak on the Tempest

When Ryder returns to the Tempest, the pyjak will already have escaped from its cage. Find and interact with it to complete the mission.

The pyjak can thereafter be found in various locations around the ship and each interaction will trigger dialogue from one of the crew members.
