This mission is a lot simpler: look around the planet’s surface and find debris for you to collect. You may have to skirmish with some wildlife, but I’m sure you can definitely handle it.

Investigate anomaly on Elaaden

Hop onto your nomad and head for the first objective. Watch out for scavengers like raiders. Ride through the huge sand dunes until you find the stasis pod in the middle of the desert. Raiders will swoop in to attack you, so watch out and take them all out.

Scan the pods for Macen, and then report back to Avitus. It appears that none of the pods are Macen Barro. Head back to the Tempest and contact Avitus.

Meet Avitus at the navpoint

Head to the Navpoint–which is at the Remav system. From there, you can finally get to see the Ark Natanus, the Turian Ark. Dock, and inside, talk to Avitus.

You can talk to Avitus a bit for some flavor text.

Afterwards, explore the Natanus.

Explore the Natanus

Pro tip: SCAN EVERYTHING. There’s a locked door that you can scan for more Andromeda points, but SAM wants you to divert its power to a different door. You’ll find the console on the bottom floor to the left of your starting point.

Head inside and scan. You’ll see some power lines leading to the Ark Natanus console. Inspect the recording, and you’ll have another dialogue with Avitus.

Head through the closed door. To the left is another door. It has some barricades you can scan, but it’s blocked because of the barricade. The next door doesn’t have power, so quickly scan for a power line leading to the barricaded door. 

The console you’re looking for is in the room you came from (the one with the recording).

Head through the now powered door.

Inside the next room is another terminal and a door. Approach the terminal. It looks like you’ve got a lead–Macen’s video log! However, it’s corrupted. Wait for SAM to repair the audio log.

Find the Sam Node

Enter through the door leading into the next hall way. There are three doors here: one all the way to the left, one facing you, and one to the right.

Check the door first facing you. It’s depowered, so head to the right and find the terminal. Re-route power to the SAM node.

It appears that Macen got hit and was moments away from death. He wants Avitus to become the next Pathfinder.

Avitus Rix: “I can’t.”
