PART 1: Getting the quest (Empire version)
To start the quest, you need to head to Mos Illa and find three things.
1. Crashed Escape Pod (451, 3065)
You will get a buff called Attacked – You witnessed the attack of an infected escapee.
2. Medical supplies (566, 2781)
You will get a buff called Exposed – The death of an infected civilian exposed you to the horror of the rakghoul plague.
3. TV (617, 3536), right outside the spaceport
You will get a buff called Informed, getting all 3 buffs will give you a new buff called On the Trail that lasts for 60 minutes. It will make you eligible to get the quest.
Now head to the speeder thingie and get the quest.

1. Crashed Escape Pod (1768, -3612)
2. Medical Supplies (2354, –3670)
3. TV right outside the spaceport.
4. Now head to the speeder/taxi in Anchorhead and you can now obtain the mission from the terminal nearby.
PART 2: Getting the 12 Starship Fragments
NOTE THAT YOU DO NOT NEED THE 1 HR BUFF TO GET ALL 12 FRAGMENTS, THE BUFF IS ONLY FOR GETTING THE QUEST AND HAS NO CONSEQUENCE ON THE OUTCOME OF THE QUEST (In other words, you don’t need to rush and get all 12 fragments in 1 hr, take your time 🙂
There are 3 fragments in Dune Sea, 4 in North Jundland, and 5 in South Jundland.
As we_todd_did on Reddit pointed out, it is probably better to do them in this order:
QT to Ridgeside Sentry Post
QT back to Ridgeside Sentry post or go to Mos Anek speeder and travel there (depending on cooldown for QT).
The Dune Sea (-1389, –479)
The Dune Sea (-2415, –757)
Dune Sea (-2031, –1893)
North Jundland (741, –2548)
North Jundland (759, –914)
North Jundland (1198, –1271)
North Jundland (-592, –1444)
South Jundland (1798, 600)
To get to the area for Fragment 8, you will need to pass through this tunnel marked on the map below.
South Jundland (-502, –328)
To get to the area where Fragment 9 is located, you will need to go to this area first (below) and go through the rock bridge.
South Jundland (1098, 724)
South Jundland (305, 260)
South Jundland (1094, –409)
After you get all 12 fragments, you will get Codex 5 of the Rakghoul event
PART 3: Getting the reward – Crimson Rakghoul Pet
Once you have all 12 fragments, head to SE Jundland and get the supply from there and your reward! This little bugger here!
