Escape the NautiloidMAIN QUEST first quest in game, starts automatically.
Find a way off the nautiloid We've been abducted by mind flayers and infected with some kind of parasite. We need to find a way off this ship.
Search the room, search the Mind Flayer corpse, 2 chests and collect everything you find.
Refer to the Rune Slates scattered around the ship for additional information.
There is a Nursery in the middle of the room, you can try INVESTIGATION on it, but it doesn't bring any significant benefits.
Near the exit from the room there is a device that restores health. There are several such Restorations on Nautiloid, you can use them whenever you want.
Go to the next room.
Meeting with Us
Search the corpse on the lower level and take the elevator to the platform above.
Myrnath NPC he's lying in the medical chair, he's basically dead and you can't save him.

And then DEXTERITY to mutilate the brain.

Baldur's Gate 3
Follower is your temporary companion. Unlike true Companions, Followers only join your party for a limited period of time. You can control them, e.g. during combat.
Walking down the corridor you meet Lae'zel.
Lae'zel will be your Companion in the future, but right now he doesn't want to talk to you about anything other than getting off the ship. Be nice to her and agree with what she says. He will join your party temporarily to help you.
You'll meet her later in the game and then you'll be able to really team her up and talk.
With Lae'zel and Us in the party, you'll have to defeat a few opponents, it shouldn't be a problem for you.
Search the room after the fight (the room is not visible on the map above), collect the loot from the corpse.
At the exit of the room you will find Restorations to heal yourself.
Take the second exit and you'll be in (05).
After the Fight
This is where you will be when you leave the room after the fight, keep going.
In the Mind Flayer Pod, you'll find imprisoned Shadowheart. You must free her.
Rescue the Illithid's CaptiveMAIN QUEST
Find a way to release the captive. We encountered a survivor, trapped inside one of the pods aboard the nautiloid. Perhaps we can find a way to free her.
Next to the Mind Flayer Pod is the console that opens it. But you can't activate it, you need the Eldritch Rune which you can find on the corpse in (07)
Use Eldritch Rune on Console, insert rune into socket.

To the last room
The next room is the last one on Nautiloid, so if you want to go back, do it now. You can also use Restoration here.
There's a fight going on in the last room on Nautiloid, stay out of it. Your task is to get to the end of the room within 15 turns and activate the console (12).
Defend yourself only against the minions that attack you.
You can collect items from corpses along the way.
Kill Commander Zhalk and get his Everburn Blade
The creators of Baldur's Gate 3 did not plan it this way. Commander Zhalk's fight with Mind Flayer is meant to be just a backdrop for your to connect the nerves of the transponder and escape. However, you can try to kill Commander Zhalk and collect his mighty Everburn Blade. It won't be easy (because it's supposed to be impossible) but try to heal Mind Flayer, attack Zhalk when Mild Flayer stun him and use Us to draw reinforcements. Remember, however, that you still only have a certain number of turns.
You can also equip Shadowheart with Command Spell, and cast Command Drop on Commander Zhalk, there is a chance that he will drop the sword on the ground at some point.
