The Erchius Mining Facility is a quest which sends players to the game's first mission the Erchius Mining Facility.

There are a number of hostile moontants and a boss encounter; the Erchius Horror inside the facility. Players should make sure they've equipped basic protective armor, have a comfortable weapon and some food or healing supplies. While SAIL may warn the player about radiation levels, these are part of the narrative and are not actually dangerous to the player.

After defeating the Erchius Horror, a passage will unlock to gather the required Erchius Crystals, along with a teleporter to return to the shipyard captain at the outpost.

He'll repair your ship after turn in, enabling it to travel to other planets within the local system. Completing this quest is a requirement of the quest Getting Started, which can now be turned into Esther.
