Fix the MPT Dish

Chapter 1 opens with you standing atop an "MPT Dish," a station that receives microwave energy beamed down from the moon. It's been damaged and it's up to you to repair it.

Move down towards the staircase at the center of the dish, then climb down the ladder at the bottom of the receiver. You'll see two "stream points" ahead -- one has a blue beam and a power icon over it, and the other is blocked by some debris.

Use your cutting tool to cut away the debris. You'll then have to move down some stairs and ladders to get to two buildings below.

Go to the building on the left. The window on the building has three cutting points at the bottom; use your Cutting Laser to cut these and open up the window.

Next, head inside the building and you'll see a door on the floor with more cutting points. Cut these open and a device with a laser will pop out of the ground. Interact with the device and aim the beam at the receiver above the doorway of the other building.

Next, head over to the other building. Go inside and you'll find another laser device.

Aim this second device at the receiving point on the outside of the building to the left.

Now that this is done, exit the right-hand building and go back to the building on the left.

Move the laser slightly to the left to hook up to the other connection point.

That's the end of the puzzle! Your objective is now complete and you can move on. Head down the stairs and hop in the truck to drive to WSA Headquarters.


Get Into the Meeting with Maria

The next major puzzle in Chapter 1 involves Kathy trying to listen in on the meeting with Maria and the other astronauts.

Head down the hallways and you'll see a vent with three cutting points. Cut the points to open the vent, then climb in.

Go down the stairs and you'll see some debris blocking the staircase. Use your Cutting Laser to open up a path and jump over the debris. At the bottom, you'll find a large room with two platforms.

Activate the controls on the right to raise the platform up out of the ground.

Jump down and activate the other platform. It will start moving to the right. Jump on the raised platform, then jump onto the moving platform. If you miss the platform, you can send the floating platform back with the same controls and try again. Alternatively, you can jump to it by standing on one of the machines or furniture in the room.

Once you're on the suspended platform, jump on top of the white cylinder nearby and look up. You'll see a round grate with four cutting points.

Use your Cutting Laser to open up the grate.

You'll then have to take control of your Ayla, your A.S.E. robot. Send Ayla into the vent and proceed through; it's a straightforward path to a vent that will let you listen in on the meeting.

Sit and wait for the conversation to be finished. You'll then have to proceed further through the ducts and around some pipes to listen in on the remainder of the conversation. Once you reach that point, you'll have completed this Puzzle (and the Objective).


Prepare for Lift-off

The Prepare for Lift-off Puzzle is fairly straightforward. For the most part, you'll have to activate switches on the three panels in front of you.

First up is the system check. There is a bank of 8 switches on the top of the right panel. They'll be called out and light up with a red light. Flip each switch with a red light.

The other astronauts will do some other checks for a few moments; you'll then be instructed to do "strongback retract." On the top of the left panel is a simple on-off switch with a slider. Push the switch, then drag the slider down.

After another few checks from the crew, you'll be instructed to retract the orbiter access arm. Interact with the joystick on the bottom of the center panel. Then, move the arm to the right.

Once that's done, you'll be immediately told to start the auxiliary power units. Look at the bottom of the right panel and you'll see four sliders. Slide each switch over the lights until the lights turn blue.

Next, you'll be told to retract the gaseous oxygen vent arm. Look back at the left panel -- you'll see a dial with the number 40 below it. Rotate the dial until it reads 0, then slide down the switch next to it. You'll then have to grab the joystick again and move the arm down.

Your next step is to switch to internal power. Look at the right-side panel -- there's a red button with a slider on the top right. Push the red button, then move the slider up.

A few more checks get done, then it's time to start the solid fuel thruster. Look at the top right of the center panel and you'll see a red button with an orange light next to it. Push the red button.

You'll hear the engine starting up, and then you'll have to throttle it up. Interact with the throttle handle below the red button you just pushed and the Zephyr will start ascending to space.

It takes a minute or two for the Zephyr to burn through its first engine, so enjoy the view and wait for the first stage of the launch to finish.

Once things settle down, you'll have to initiate stage 1 separation. Look at the top-left of the center panel and you'll see a sliding handle is lit up. Slide it down until the line is over the green indicator, then let go.

Next, you'll have to ignite the second stage. Look at the top-right of the center panel and you'll see another red button with an orange light next to it. Push this button, then push the throttle lever below it forward again.

You'll have to wait for another minute or so while the second engine runs. When it runs out of fuel, you'll have to separate the second stage on the center panel by pulling down the lower sliding lever until the white line is over the green indicator.

When the second stage separates, the screen will read "Cruise mode successfully activated." You've completed this Puzzle and you're now in space -- and at the end of Chapter 1.
