Before you can start the Faction Quest you’ll need to complete the previous quest, and you can do that by following the steps on our Surgical Strike Walkthrough: Where to Find Maya Cruz in Starfield. Upon completing the mission, return to and speak with the mayor and Emma in the meeting room, then after the debriefing Alex will inform you all that he cracked the slates and has located their base.
You’ll now want to fly to Arcturus System, but before you do, be sure to stock up on healing items and ammo for your strongest weapon as you’re going to face a lot of enemies along the way to finding Paxton. When you arrive in Arcturus you’ll be attacked by multiple ships belonging to the First, so you’ll want to tackle one at a time until they’re destroyed otherwise you’ll find yourself getting shot by multiple sources if you try and weaken them first. The best way to take them down is to strip their shields by using the laser weapon and deplete their health with your missiles.
