After that return to the Tower and get the quest The Vanguards Hand, which has you patrolling the Dreadnaught. You will have to set up Patrol quest points and do a few other things while you are there. This will let you do Patrol missions and free roam on the Dreadnaught.
When you return to the Tower and turn in that quest, talk to Eris and she will give you the quest “A Broken Will”. Talk to the Crucible quartermaster and he will let you know what you need to get. You will need to go to the Dreadnaught and farm Hadium Flakes, you will also need 10 Motes of Light.
