Quest stages

Status Stage Description
Listen to the Caravan Distress Call My Pip-Boy is picking up a distress call signal. I should listen to it to see what it says.
Find the Caravan The distress signal told me the caravan was just east of Wattz Consumer Electronics. If I want to help them, I need to get there fast.
Eliminate the Hostile Robots When I arrived at the caravan site, the travelers were already dead. I saw a robot being attacked by several other robots that I've never seen before. If I help this lone robot, perhaps I can learn more about what's going on.
Speak to the Robot Now that I've rescued the robot I should speak to it and find out what's going on.
