Variks is alarmed to hear about Eramis's lieutenants using Stasis. The situation is more dire than he realized.
He wants to remain on Europa in order to help other Eliksni who wish to flee Eramis, and asks you to help set up a comms network using a nearby array. That way, he can communicate with his allies and prepare for evacuation.
Help Variks set up the patrols network in Charon's Crossing.
