Note: This mission can also be acquired by approaching the Northern Holding Site. This normally happens if you travel to the location for Task: Clearing the Air. Acquiring the mission in this fashion changes the objectives to Rescue captured angara and Speak to rescued angara.
This mission is a Heleus Assignment if it was started by Eyes on the Ground. Alternatively, this mission is a Priority Op if it was started by On the Frontlines.
Reach kett holding site Edit
The navpoint is located at a heavily guarded kett base named the Northern Holding Site. Make use of the heaters scattered around to ensure the cold hazard doesn't sap Ryder's life support too much.
Rescue Niilj and other captured angara Edit
The angara are imprisoned in four cages with an orange glow. Use the console next to each cage to free the prisoners. The angara will join you in fighting the kett when released.
Clear remaining kett Edit
More waves of kett will appear via airship, so be prepared.
After the battle, there a numerous lootable containers scattered around the site and inside the building.
There is a datapad on the ground next to one of the cages.
Inside the building is a terminal with multiple entries.
Speak to Niilj Edit
After releasing all the prisoners, talk to Niilj. He says the angara will head back to the Angaran Resistance Base, but another angara mentions that a drive containing vital data from the kett network must be delivered. The angara ask that you take the drive to Buxil in Techiix.
Completing the conversation completes this mission. The mission Meet the Family is automatically acquired.
If this is a Priority Op, a conversation with Jaal will now begin; if Jaal is not in the squad, he will fly to the camp via shuttle. Rescuing the prisoners has been enough to gain Evfra's trust, so you will be given the options of heading to Techiix or advancing A Trail of Hope by talking to Evfra immediately. If you choose to talk to Evfra, the squad will immediately take a shuttle to the Tempest and leave the planet.
