Our next mission in the Ryujin Industries questline is ‘Maintaining the Edge’. After getting intel on the Trident Luxury Lines and their new prototype engine, Imogene sends us on a heist mission to steal the prototype schematics. It's time to put those lockpicking skills to use.
Starfield: Maintaining the Edge Walkthrough
Talk to Imogene
After completing the previous quest, Accidents Happen, you have to talk to Imogene to get briefed on your next assignment. Your job is to steal the Prototype Schematics for a brand-new engine model developed by Trident Luxury Lines.
Travel to Trident Luxury Lines Staryard
The first goal is to travel to the Trident Luxury Lines Staryard in the Cheyenne System, near Akila. Get close and dock your ship to the Luxury Lines Staryard. Then, proceed to enter it and walk up to the reception room.
Steal the Prototype Schematics
There are two methods of obtaining the Prototype Schematics.
- Head down the stairs to the office below and unlock the doors to the Prototype Schematics room.
- A vent in the reception room leads to the Prototype Schematics room. You need to unlock the vent and steal the schematics from a chest for this.
Stealing the Prototype Schematics From the Office
Head down to the office. You will find a door opposite to Gladys Coffin. You need to use a Digipick on the door to unlock it and get access to the inside, where you will find the chest with the Prototype Schematics. The biggest challenge here is to avoid the guards and Gladys, as they are constantly patrolling. We would suggest that you wait until midnight to have them shift away.
You will also need a Digipick for the Novice lock on the chest inside. If you do not have a Digipick, you can find one inside a storage room at the back of the office.
Stealing the Prototype Schematics Through the Vent
This method of stealing the schematics is more straightforward as you will only encounter a single security guard. Still, you must have level 2 Security to unlock the Expert lock on the vent.
After opening the vent, drop down, unlock the chest and grab the Prototype Schematics from inside.
Talk with Imogene at Ryujin Tower
After successfully stealing the Prototype Schematics, head back to Neon City and talk with Imogene Salzo at Ryujin Tower to collect your rewards.
