The UC Vanguard can be encountered in New Atlantis, which is likely to be the first major city you visit in Starfield. This group will test your piloting skills in a ship before you join up with them and take on missions for them across the Settled Systems. Here's a list of their quests:

  1. Supra Et Ultra
  2. Grunt Work
  3. Delivering Devils
  4. Eyewitness
  5. Friends Like these
  6. The Devils You Know
  7. War Relics
  8. Hostile Intelligence
  9. A Legacy Forged

The UC Vanguard has some cool missions early on in the questline, so definitely join up with them early if you can.

All Freestar Rangers quests in Starfield

The Freestar Collective operates in Akila City primarily, but they have Rangers all over the universe in Starfield. By joining up with them you'll be able to complete a whole new series of quests, taking down criminals and getting to the bottom of an investigation.

  1. Job Gone Wrong
  2. Deputized
  3. Where Hope is Built
  4. Shadows in Neon
  5. Surgical Strike
  6. On the Run
  7. First to Fight, First to Die
  8. The Hammer Falls

The Freestar Ranger questline takes you all over the Settled Systems. They've got a bit of an old western theme, kind of like space cowboys, so if you're into that then the Rangers might be for you.

All Ryujin Industries quests in Starfield

Ryujin Industries can be found in Neon, a city atop the waters of Volii Alpha. This city is very cyberpunk-esque, and if you're a fan of corporate espionage they'll be right up your street. Ryujin Industries will task you with some pretty shady quests, such as planting incriminating evidence and ruining business deals.

  1. Back to the Grind
  2. One Step Ahead
  3. A New Narrative
  4. Sowing the Discord
  5. Maintaining the Edge
  6. Top Secret
  7. Background Checks
  8. Guilty Parties
  9. The Key Ingredient
  10. Sabotage
  11. Executive Level

In a way, Ryujin Industries is like a new take on the Thieves Guild. The missions will have you stealing and manipulating events, all to benefit your corporate overlords - though there's a bit more to it than that.

The Crimson Fleet is an enemy faction in Starfield, but you can actually join up with them too once you reach the Kryx system. Here's a full quest list of all the Crimson Fleet missions in the game:

  1. Deep Cover
  2. Rook Meets King
  3. Echoes of the Past
  4. Breaking the Bank
  5. The Best There Is
  6. Absolute Power
  7. Eye of the Storm
  8. Legacy's End

That's it for our Starfield quest list. There's a lot to get stuck into in this game, and each questline comes with its own achievements to complete if you're an achievement hunter.
