Detailed walkthrough

MODUS requests that three triangulation points be aligned for it to scan the area before he'll have the Kovac-Muldoon Platform send down a supply drop for the player characters. As each triangulation point is activated, the Kovac will radio in confirmation before requesting heading to the next one. Once the triangulation points are activated, the Kovac will scan the area before sending down the supply drop, asking anyone in the vicinity of where the drop will land to clear the area as it makes its descent, easily seen and heard by the glow from the re-entry friction and the roar it makes. Once it lands, other enemies will be attracted to the area due to the supply drop, which the Kovac will detect and have the supply drop locked until they have been dealt with. Once they have been dealt with, the Kovac will unlock the supply drop so the rewards inside can be collected, completing the quest, with the Kovac's final words being "Have a nice day." Note that while the orbital drop is accompanied by impressive effects, even if the player character stands directly where it will land, nothing will happen to them. It is possible to acquire an Enclave plasma gun as a reward from this quest, but mods for it will have to be acquired through other means, such as buying prefabricated mods from MODUS.

If the Officer on Deck quest is active, completing Dropped Connection will award one commendation needed to attain General rank and access the Appalachian Automated Launch System.
