The player first meets the scavenger late into the game, after coming into earth's orbit. The player gets a distress signal coming from the planet. The Scavenger can be found in the earth tunnels with his own bunker and bunker depot. He will eventually give you a quest to go find the professor in the earth desert. He can be invited aboard the Professor's Mobile Lab once it is built. Not only does it have to be built, but you will need to install 3 power cores and then fly it over to the Scavenger's area in order to invite him.
