Have you heard the tale of a missing courier whose package turned out to be more than meets the eye? Well, this isn’t Fallout: New Vegas, but it is how to complete Missed Connections in Starfield.

How to Start Missed Connections

To start Missed Connections, visit the local Reliant Medical in Gagarin Landing, then head up to the second floor to speak with the owner, Helena Strickland. She’s a tough-as-nails woman with zero patience for anything but her bottom line. Unfortunately, her courier is missing, and he’s dead meat if that package doesn’t arrive on time.

How to Complete Missed Connections

To complete Missed Connections, you’ll assist Helena Strickland in tracking down the missing courier and her package, returning it to her as soon as possible so that business may continue running smoothly. Easy, right?

Missed Connections Quest Objectives
Speak to Helena Strickland
Follow Helena
Search for the Courier Along His Route
Search the Courier’s Body for the Package
Speak to Helena About the Package

After speaking with Helena, then waiting for her to walk all the way around her desk to use the intercom that was directly beside her head (Seriously, why?), you’ll receive the access codes for four tracking terminals scattered about Gagarin Landing. You must access these to find out where our courier has already been.

Upon coming up to the final tracking location, sadly, you’ll find the courier. Just see the screenshot below to learn his fate.

But what about the package? Its contents are missing, and Helena won’t take kindly to such news, so return to her posthaste and do not delay the inevitable.

With the news of the deceased courier and missing package, Helena is in a bit of a panic and angry. But unfortunately, her receptionist from downstairs is now missing, too. She’s tracking his location to a nearby planet, along with her package.

That’s where Missed the Mark picks up.

For completing Missed Connections in Starfield, you will receive the following rewards:

  • 50 XP
  • Credits (Leveled)

Overall, it is a straightforward quest that lets you play detective momentarily.

But if you prefer to whip out your sidearm and shoot down anyone, we recommend Groundpounder for its action-centric storyline.
