Just outside the Galactic Zone, the Sole Survivor finds the remains of some traders that had tried to flee from the newly activated security of the zone in December 2286. A holotape on one of the bodies mentioned a mainframe called Star Control that may be related to the attack. Intrigued, the Sole Survivor investigates.
- Approach the gates of the Galactic Zone.
- Enter the Zone. Head for the center spire and activate the mainframe. To turn it on, you need at least one, found on the body of Kendell Alston nearby.
- Install it to learn that you need to find a total of 35 cores.
- Find star cores across the Zone or kill every robot and turret in the Zone. Brute force works well.
- Install them at the mainframe. At 20 you can deactivate robots throughout the Galactic Zone, securing it.
- The quest is complete once you shut down the robots. However, you can continue to amass star cores and get to 35, at which point you'll be able to unlock the display case and collect the X-01 power armor.

This section is needed but has not been written yet. You can help The Vault by writing it.
- Some locations respawn, like the junkyard, allowing the player to bypass the requirement for turning on the power plant to acquire the X-01 power armor. Power is not required to be turned on to access the display case in this situation.
