Space can be lonely, so make sure you find some crew members to keep you company as you journey across the stars. Starfield has a large cast of characters with a wide range of personalities to interact with. Some of these characters are available to become your companion if you can convince them to join your crew. While a few will join as part of the main story, there will be some that you will have to convince or hire with credits. Each companion comes with a skillset that can enhance your crew to some degree.
