The Journey to Meridian is a priority ops mission. It is acquired automatically after Hunting the Archon.


The Archon's map shows the way to Meridian. However, this issue affects the entire Andromeda Initiative, and leadership should be consulted before proceeding further.

Meridian—"Khi Tasira" to the kett—will be difficult to infiltrate. The other pathfinders and the Ghost Storm technology will be critical to success. Using Ghost Storm, the other pathfinders' ships can mimic the Tempest's energy signatures and draw the kett's attention.

Explore Meridian to learn more about how it controls the vault network, and how you might be able to utilize this knowledge.

Exploration of the Remnant network system has revealed that Meridian is controlled by a nearby central command hub. Activating that command hub will allow Meridian as a whole to be activated, which will reset the entire vault system.

This Remnant station was only one part of Meridian—a control module of some kind. The Remnant defenses activated from this point have made short work of most kett, although some remain to threaten the squad.

To the right as you enter the Archives, there's a room with a console on a platform above you. Ledges will emerge from the wall as you approach. Careful jumping can get you to the console, which opens a room across the way. That room contains a Remnant Data Core.

The locked puzzle door is one of two puzzles that cannot be overridden with a Remnant Decryption Key.

The final XP reward for this mission doesn't display onscreen. There may be a quick flash of the encounter XP for defeating the enemies for the battle but the fixed +4400 is never shown.
