After completing the “Further Into The Unknown” main quest, talking to Vladimir will initiate “Short Sighted.” Going in line with its name, this quest is short and sweet.

Help With Repairs At The Eye

When you talk to Vladimir, he will mention that the Eye floating in orbit above Jemison could do with some repairs, especially in the event of an attack from an unknown enemy. Hop in your ship, and make your way up into the atmosphere.

Upon boarding the Eye, you’ll need to check in with various repairs being done by members of Constellation. There are four areas where repairs are being done, and you can choose to do them in any order.
