How to Complete Sarah Morgan’s Companion Quest: In Memoriam

Sarah Morgan’s companion quest, “In Memoriam,” is a multi-stage endeavour that takes you across various locales to help Sarah find closure for her troubled past. This is the pivotal quest required to deepen your relationship with her, so it’s crucial to follow each step attentively.

The quest begins in the MAST District. Sarah will approach you, expressing her desire to speak with her former commanding officer. Accept her request to trigger the quest. Head to the Eta Cassiopeia system and land on the planet Cassiopeia I. Your objective here is to find Sarah’s old campsite, which she left behind years ago during her time in the military.

Once on the planet, locate a sloping path leading up a canyon. The path will have various forks, always take the right turns to reach the summit. At the top, you’ll encounter a set of rocks that turn out to be carnivorous creatures. Prepare for a tough fight. After defeating the creatures, enter the crashed ship near the summit. Here, you need to locate and analyse telemetry data.

Head back down and traverse the terrain to find a small habitation. Inside, you’ll meet Sona, a young girl who happens to be the daughter of two of Sarah’s former comrades. Proceed further into a wooded area where you’ll find a plateau with several marked graves. Here, explore to collect the nine dog tags belonging to Sarah’s fallen comrades.

The tenth and final dog tag is inside a creature called a Greater Silverfish. Locate and defeat this monster to obtain the last tag. With all dog tags in hand, head back to Sona and convince her to join you and Sarah. The choice will increase Sarah’s approval rating so we recommend asking Sona to come with you.
