Starfield: One Small Step Quest Walkthrough

In Starfield, there is a lot to explore, but before you can dive into a vast galaxy full of interactions, you need to get off a small moon. Luckily, you will be introduced to the story, so you won't miss out on much, but this is an important part of your journey. Nonetheless, it can be a bit challenging to know where to begin and what to do.

From the moment you start the game, you will find yourself involved in the story with a mysterious artifact that you must deliver to a faction called Constellation. Along the way, you will encounter some difficulties, but for an experienced explorer, this won't be a problem.

How To Fend Off The Pirates

After creating your character, you can freely move around.

  • Follow Lin and Heller to meet the client outside.
  • You'll need to equip your helmet before stepping out of the facility.
  • You'll meet Barrett, but your introductions are cut short by Crimson Fleet Pirates.

You need to get ready to fight. You can use your cutter for attacking or pick up another weapon that is lying around. There's an Eon with some ammunition in an open container that you can take as an optional weapon, and it is much more effective than the cutter, although the ammunition is limited.

Luckily, you are not alone in this fight. Use cover to avoid damage and let the other miners help take out the pirates.

Once the pirates are gone, Barret will insist that you take over his ship, the Frontier, while he helps clean up this mess. You are destined for greater things now. Say goodbye to Lin and board the ship with Vasco to deliver the artifact to Constellation.

This is a great place to search for early equipment such as first aid kits. Make sure to explore before departure.

How To Fly The Ship

Once you take off, you will be faced with the flight tutorial for operating the ship. You can go through it or skip it, but you must take down three ships of the Crimson Fleet if they attack you in space.

Vasco suggests taking a detour to deal with the captain of the Crimson Fleet, as their attacks are likely to impact the mission. Make your way to the nearby moon of Kreet to locate the abandoned facility where they have taken refuge.

Where To Find The Kreet Base

Once you disembark from the Frontier, the base is right ahead, down the hill. Collect all the resources along the way and be cautious of the Kreet stalkers as you proceed. Enter the facility and make your way by eliminating any Crimson Fleet pirates that stand in your path.

There is plenty of loot nearby, and you'll want to grab it. If you find yourself overloaded, pass some equipment items to Vasco for him to carry. Move through the facility, past the broken containment chamber, up the stairs, and to the ladder with access to the roof.

Where To Find The Captain

Once you step onto the roof, you will come face to face with Brogan, the captain of the Crimson Fleet. You can either lie to him about Barrett's death or interrogate him with further questions. Either way, he wants the Frontier.

You can either attack him directly or try to convince him to leave you alone before anyone else gets hurt. This way, you can avoid a fight and simply walk away. Otherwise, you will have to engage in combat. Use your surroundings to seek cover and eliminate the pirates.

Target the explosive container behind Brogan and his crewmates to inflict damage on them before taking them out for good.

During the fight, you can search the other two pirates for weapons and ammunition, and after defeating Brogan, you can also loot him.

You can persuade Brogan to leave, and then, after exploring the area, attack him and the other two pirates to loot them. They won't be hostile towards you until you initiate the attack.

Once you have dealt with the pirates, return to your ship and take off. If you fought against Brogan, Vasco will bring the ship to you. From there, you need to travel to Jemison and locate the city of New Atlantis.

How To Deliver The Artifact

You need to take the NAT transit to the MAST district. Once you disembark, go up and to the right, following the path to reach the lodge. You will open the door with the clock that Barret gave you and then enter.

Vasco informs you that everyone is waiting in the library, so open the door and speak to Sarah. As you enter, you will meet members of Constellation and place your artifact on the table. They will start interacting with each other and give you a first glimpse of what Constellation is all about.

After the artifacts come together, Sarah will talk to you about joining Constellation, which will conclude the quest.
