The Codex provides a large amount of lore and information on the people, technologies, and history of the Andromeda Initiative, as well as new discoveries in the Heleus Cluster. Entries are added or updated as the game progresses.
The Journey So Far...
As you explore Andromeda, the allies, enemies, and choices you make will have a significant impact on the future of Heleus and those who call the cluster home.
Finding a Home
The Heleus Cluster is nothing like the Initiative expected. The Pathfinder faces terrible dangers and unimaginable wonders in the search for a safe place to call home.
A Crew Like No Other
Only the best and most experienced crew can hope to succeed on the Pathfinder's mission. These allies and companions ensure survival for thousands of settlers.
These codex entries are different than the fixed dossiers for each character under the Known Associates codex section. These are flexible codex entries that change based upon Ryder's decisions during gameplay.

All codex entries are reset when a New Game + is started.
When The Journey to Meridian is acquired, the symbol will get locked to the Codex at the top of the screen and to the Scourge codex entry. There is no way to remove this icon. Once this happens, you will have to open the Codex screen and check to see if any of the categories are showing a new codex entry has been added.
