Long Distance is one of the main quests that are part of Halcyon questline. During it, you will have to send a signal that will help Sophia Akande track Phineas. This page of our guide to The Outer Worlds has a detailed walkthrough for this quest.
List of objectives
- Send a tracking signal;
- Return to ADA;
- Talk to Sophia.
The quest is activated automatically after completing The Demolished Woman quest. Sophia Akande asks you to send a signal to help track Phineas while you are in his lab.
Go to Phineas's lab. Before you send a signal, talk to Phineas. Tell him about your task. The scientist will offer to send Sophia a distorted message.
Note: The decision has no influence on the further course of the plot.
Go to the terminal located in the corner of the room. Decide which signal you want to send. No matter what decision you make, Akande will be satisfied. After a conversation through ADA, go to Byzantium to talk with Sophia.
