Uncovering the Past is a heleus assignments mission. It is acquired on Voeld by speaking with Buxil at the end of Remove the Heart.

Description[edit | edit source]

Uncover the angaran roots on the ice planet known as Voeld.

Objectives[edit | edit source]

  • Investigate ice cave
  • Clear out kett
  • Rescue captured angara
  • Talk to rescued angara
  • Go to blockage
  • Clear blast zone
  • Enter chamber

Notes[edit | edit source]

Ryder can choose to kill the AI or let it live. The rewards are the same regardless of the decision. If Ryder decides to let the AI live, a second choice must be made: take it to SAM Node on the Hyperion and let it work with SAM or give it to the angara. The angara make good use of it in the Resistance Headquarters on Aya, but it will make some fairly rude remarks if Ryder tries to talk to it.

If Ryder gives the Ancient AI to the angara, during Meridian: The Way Home, a conversation over the comms talks about the computer helping with calculations. It is unclear how this helps the battle inside the Remnant facility.

The followup email from Evfra reflects Ryder's choice.

Some objectives for both Forgotten History and Task: Gone Dark take place at the Ja Niihk Dig Site.

After the mission, Ryder can speak with Eska Yeveth in Techiix. She invites Ryder to establish an outpost on Voeld. (Although Ryder may have already done so, given the only requirement for an outpost is 40% viability.)

Research Opportunities[edit | edit source]

The two Kett Core Encryption Techs can be scanned before the shield around Ja Niihk Dig Site is taken down during Remove the Heart.
