Wasteland Wiki

Don't know if it's a hoax, or a trap, or what, but I thought you should hear it. Up to you if you want to respond. The signal originates near your current location. Anyway, I'll patch you through.

Call to Action is a quest in Wasteland 3.


We received a call for help from someone calling themselves Morningstar. They claim to be trapped under the ruins of Union Station in Denver.


  • The objective is found at Union Station. You need to find the "tomb" of Morningstar, which is hidden (obviously). After fighting through Hard-Heads (optionally talking Fishlips down with First Aid 7) and meeting Scotchmo in the bar in the western part of the Station, activate the generator in the backroom (Mechanics 9 required or solve puzzle to get all four switches on) and activate the switches on the walls, which will power up a secret door inside the bar (the bottle counter). However, you can't access it just yet due to the secure door in the way.
  • To open it, head north outside the station, fighting through more Hard Heads. Head to the shack to the northwest. You can enter through the front door (Lockpicking 7 or explosives) or by disarming the level 7 traps in the back. Interact with the computer to unlock the database, and will open Morningstar's vault.
  • Return to the bar and enter the vault through the hidden door. You can talk to Morningstar there and learn that it wants to die after a hundred years of being trapped in an abandoned vault. You have two options:
    • Oblige it, which means destroying the AI module before the countdown reaches zero (and kills you in a special ending). You get the Great Communicator out of it.
    • Convince it otherwise with Kiss Ass 7 or Nerd Stuff 8 (diplomacy or pointing out it's simply his programming that needs changes), then Mechanics 7 to disable its defensive matrix during removal (which will otherwise make you go boom).
  • The quest completes once Morningstar is in its new home - or dead. And your team is alive.
