# 1 Fluid Dynamics

Having difficulty getting started on the Fluid Dynamics mission. Every time I scan a portal I'm told it's not stable enough to enter or some such problem.....I have tried just about all portals, and have had to fight off tons of enemies.....they are all over me. Have tried over and over without success.
Anyone have any tips on how to deal with this? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for reading.

Not sure if it'll help, but I usually just head straight right at the start, scan the portals in that straight path while avoiding patrols, and usually the 3rd or 4th portal advances the mission.

I just did it a couple of hours ago. For me it;s the middle one, one down from the top.

STOwiki says so as well so I don't think it changes every time:

My concern was if I was supposed to blow up all those ships or not as I was flying around trying to get in. After all here we are trying to make peace with them.

ie "We come in peace. Shoot to kill...."

If that's the one with the weird tunnels all over... Just stay inside the tunnel the ENTIRE time, and you'll not fight a single undine ship while scanning the portals, and you'll go past EVERY one.

The portals are set up in a loose formation, the one you want is in the center, in the back of the cluster.
To avoid fighting your way all the way there, climb high and fly over everything then dive down on the correct one.
You're in it in about 2 min from mission start.

If you aren't in a rush, you can just fly inside the tunnels. the mission NPC text outright say truthfully it'll shield you from detection.
