First off , welcome to Eve.

Right , have you actually accepted the mission? If you have then you should be able to either warp to the location or set destination (if it's not in the same system) via your journal or the mission details on the left side of your UI.

Many times I've thought that there was something amiss with the mission only to find that in my haste to get out there I've forgotten to actually accept the darn thing.

If you've accepted the mission and you can't see a destination then it might be a bug and worth raising a petition.

Either way , I really hope you get it sorted :)

See if this helps you at all

To be honest it's been ages since I've done the newbie missions , but I do remember some of them being a tad confusing.

So having watched the video , it would seem that there is only an acceleration gate at your first destination. This leads to the first pocket where the bad guys are at.

Did you see an acceleration gate?

Yeah make sure to use any and all acc gates that are at a mission.

If you don't use the acc gates you're effectively standing around at the gate into the castle going "where is everybody?"
