Spaceships are a key mode of transportation in Starfield, allowing players to travel from planet to planet. Players will also be able to engage in combat with enemy spaceships while flying in their own spaceship. There will be a mechanic allowing you to dock and board onto other spaceships/structures in outer space. 

After docking, you'll be able to get up and board the other ship or star station, whether it be an ally or an enemy ship. From there possible actions involve boarding and disabling enemy ships, stealing ships, completing Missions and smuggling.

Spaceships will be completely customizable and will feature an intricate assembly system. There will be many Ship Modules to choose from, including different engines, landers, and shields, all of which may have different manufacturers. You can find all the relevant information and updates on Spaceships on this page.

Ship Modules in Starfield are customizable parts of the player's Spaceship. Ship Modules will come in all shapes, sizes, and manufacturers, and players will be able to freely design the layout, color palette, and power of their spaceship. These parts will cost credits and resources to use, and some may even require the player to have specific Skills unlocked. You can find all the relevant information and updates on Ship Modules on this page.

Known Ship Modules include:

  • Cockpit
  • Engines - May determine ship speed
  • Fuel Tanks - May determine thruster capacity
  • Landers 
  • HAB (Habitation Modules) - May determine how many people you can fit in your crew
  • Reactors
  • Shields

Fuel is an important part of flying a ship. From a Q&A video with Todd Howard, it has been revealed that Starfield's development team has changed how fuel works in-game. The previous iteration of fuel mechanics had it so that once players ran out of fuel, their ship came to a standstill. However, this felt too punishing from a player's perspective, and so it was changed so that fuel no longer runs out completely, and instead the amount of fuel available in the ship determines how far in space the player can travel at once.
