This section contains a list and walkthroughs of all side quests encountered during the exploration of the Shuttle Bay. Completing these missions is completely optional, but each one offers a valuable reward.
The opportunity to unlock this task appears after reaching the Escape Pod Bay which is located in north-eastern corner of the level one of the Shuttle Bay. The area is accessed through a staircase guarded by a turret. You should receive a message from Frank Jones, who will ask for your help in freeing up a rescue pod that became stuck in the launch tube.
If you want to help the group trapped in the escape pod, make your way to the main hangar and use the airlock to access Talos I Outside. Travel to the escape pod. You may encounter a number of Typhoons, including a Telepath. Moreover, there is a cystoid nest next to the capsule. In order to unlock the capsule itself, destroy the red latches similar to the one seen on the screenshot above. Use any weapon you see fit.
Return to the Escape Pod Bay once you've destroyed the latches. Make your way to the central console and choose Launch Pod 2.
Soon, you'll receive a thank you from Emmanuelle, who will guide you to the reward. Travel to the Mechanic Facilities, which can be found on level one next to the main hangar, and proceed to the Locker Room. Climb on the ceiling and access the briefcase containing a note and 2 neuromods.
