Breaking the Bank is the fourth Crimson Fleet quest in Starfield. It involves an operation to gain access to the Galbank Archives from an executive on board the Siren of the Stars. Additionally, you have the optional side quest of stealing the Earth Savior Award for some extra Credits and XP. Let's look at how to go about this in Breaking the Bank.
