    Missable Achievement

    This achievement can be earned via the main quest "Foundation", however whether this mission is available to you depends on how you handle the Emerald Vale power crisis near the beginning of the game.

    Here's how I did it:
    * Redirected the power back to Edgewater.
    * Convinced Reed to step-down and for Adelaide to take over as leader of Edgewater. (Comes Now The Power)
    * Get the NavKey to Monarch (Passage to Anywhere)
    * Learn the location of the chemicals (Radio Free Monarch)
    * Steal the chemicals for Phineas (The City and the Stars)
    * Plant tracking signal for Sophia (Long Distance)
    * Meet with Sophia and agree to sort out Edgewater (Long Distance)

    This should give you the mission "Foundation".

    I believe there are multiple possible options that can differ from the above that you could take and still give you the mission. Turning in Phineas at the start of the game may short cut the time it takes. Although I haven't tried this myself.

    This guide is for anyone following Peace In Our Time, you can actually get both of these with a simple hard-save.

    Following the previous achievement, you want to:

    * Divert power to Edgewater
    * Convince Deserters to return, leaving Reed in charge
    * Turn in Phineas to the Board to start working with Sophia
    * Progress story until you resolve the Radio Transmitter and the UDL ship crashes

    At this point, Signal Point in Space will change and ask that you return to Sophia. Before you do, head to Edgewater, up the elevator to Reed's office and kill him and his two bodyguards. The rest of the town won't even notice. Now when you talk to Sophia, she'll say that Edgewater is in shambles and need you to activate the Termination Protocol Foundation mission.

    This achievement will pop as soon as you clean up the final robot.

    As a bonus, if you're going for the 3 Negative Faction achievement, killing Reed will immediately give you 100% negative Spacer's Choice. Killing Sophia will give you 100% negative Board, then you're likely close to negative with either MSI or Iconoclast. If not, Roseway is a good choice as I'm guessing this isn't your ideal save to continue the story anyway.

    The requirements of this achievement are two:
    1) Divert the power to Edgewater and deal with Reed so that Adelaide takes over from him in Edgewater. This can be done by either convincing him to step down ([Persuade]) or by simply killing him.
    2) Progress the story by choosing to turn Phineas over to Udom Belford, as it is faster (and cheaper) this way, compared to trying to help Phineas. When being able to, plant the corrupted tracking signal for Sophia Akande. That will allow you to visit her and talk to her. She will give you another quest first. After completing that, return to her and the "Foundation" quest will begin. Complete it and the achievement will unlock.
