How do I continue the BoS quest line?
I've gotten to a point where the only quests I can do are the clearing out/artifact retrieval quests. Surely this can't be as far as their story goes. I haven't really touched the main quest yet, does it open up as you complete the main quest?

Think you need to progress main story past "Reunions" to move forward with BoS. It's exactly what I just did minutes ago! I won't spoil it but very cool BoS scene after leaving Fort Hagen during this mission.

Reunions one of the best quests imo.

Nice! Thanks for the info. What exactly IS the main quest, anyway? The Minute Man stuff or doing that quest for the reporter chick in Diamond City?

Not sure why Steam blocked the link but here's the details from the Google'd link I just looked at:

Fallout 4 main story and side quest checklist
The Commonwealth is pretty big, but more importantly it’s extremely dense. There’s so much to see and do, and plenty of it doesn’t even register in your quest log. The least we can do is put together a checklist of the game’s main content, so you’ve got some idea of what’s out there and how far along you are.

Below you’ll find a list of quests found in the main story, provided by factions and companions, and various other categories.

As with all our guides for this massive game, this is a work in progress; at time of writing the list is far from complete.

Fallout 4 Main quest path

Act 1
Out of Time
– Initial quest
When Freedom Calls
– Completion leads into Minutemen quests
Jewel of the Commonwealth
– Initiated before completing previous quest
Unlikely Valentine
Getting A Clue
Act 2
Dangerous Minds
The Glowing Sea
The Molecular Level
At this point the main quest can go in one of four directions, depending on which factions you’ve been working with, which faction you chose to help you with The Molecular Level, and whether you choose to continue in your current allegiance or switch sides. You’ll notice three of the faction questlines contain one quest with the same name; you can’t please everyone, and you will end up pissing off one side or another, no matter what you do.

Minutemen and base building quest path

The Minutemen are all about settling the Commonwealth peacefully. Somehow this involves a lot of shooting? Preston is your best friend here.
