The Solanae Dyson Sphere story arc opens up upon reaching level 50.

There will be a point in the story where you are forced to land in the Voth Battlezone, which is where all the accolades required for the achievement are obtained. That mission is called The Omega Standoff.

The accolades you are looking to obtain are called Awaiting the Return, Searched for the Truth, Testing the Limits, Voth Cultural Expert, Dyson Sphere Researcher, and Paleontologist. To figure out which ones you have or don't have, go to the Lore Accolades category of the Accolades tab in the Mission Journal.

Voth Cultural Expert

Capture a control point, which is represented by the fireball looking symbols on the map above, then interact with the nearby cache (represented by the blue dots). To capture these points, simply stand defend the area that is defined by a yellow circle until the bar fills up.

Awaiting the Return, Searched for the Truth, and Testing the Limits
(each area has its own accolade: Outskirts, Park, and City, respectively)

Capture a generator, which is represented by the omega symbols on the map above. Once captured, you should be able to interact with any Unknown Console with that area (represented by the green dots). To start the capture process, you must activate the console underneath the container. There is another object you can interact with just to the left of that first console that will speed up the process (it unlocks an accolade, too, but that's not required for this achievement). There are two "checkpoints" where the container will stall until you activate another console. Those consoles will have arrows above it, and it is under where the container stops. Once the container reaches the end, the point is captured.

Also, you'll notice that the Outskirts area only has two, whilst the other two areas (Park and City) have three. For some reason, you can/have to activate the bottom-left Unknown Console twice (as well as the other Unknown Console, of course) in order to unlock the accolade.

Dyson Sphere Researcher
This is obtained once you obtain Awaiting the Return, Searched for the Truth, and Testing the Limits.

This is obtained once all other accolades are obtained, and should unlock when the achievement unlocks.
