Every Staryard in Starfield and Their Locations

Starfield Staryards

Despite Starfield featuring many ship component manufacturers (20 in total), you will find only four actual staryards in the game. If you are wondering why, it’s because most manufacturers don’t assemble entire ships. Instead, they produce ship parts.

The manufacturers that assemble entire ships are the ones that have either a staryard or a showroom. This includes:

  • Deimos (Deimos Staryard in Deimos’ orbit)
  • Stroud-Eklund (Stroud-Eklund Staryard & Stroud-Eklund Showroom in Neon)
  • Nova Galactic (Nova Galactic Staryard in Luna’s orbit)
  • HopeTech (HopeTech Showroom)
  • Taiyo Astroneering (Taiyo Astroneering Showroom in Neon)
  • Trident Exotic Lines (Trident Exotic Lines Staryard)

Five of these six manufacturers have something in common: They all produce Cockpits, Habs, Dockers, Landing Bays, Landing Gear, and Structural Components, making them the only ones to assemble ship hulls or airframes.

To make a Formula 1 comparison, let’s go back in time. Back in 1994, Benneton did have a Formula 1 team, while Renault didn’t. However, Renault produced Formula 1 car engines. Meanwhile, Benneton produced only Formula 1 car chassis and had Renault as an engine supplier, so Benneton was the car’s manufacturer.

Similarly, in Starfield, these 6 manufacturers have supplies for Engines, Grav Drives, Weapons, etc., and they install them to their airframes to build entire spaceships. That’s why there are so few staryards. There are many ship component manufacturers, but not many entire ship manufacturers.

But now, let’s answer your actual questions.

The Difference Between Staryards and Ship Services Technicians

Staryards offer a subset of the functionality Ship Services Technicians do. Here is what you can do in Staryards:

Starfield Staryards and Their Locations

There are only four staryards in Starfield. Only three are operational (the Nova Galactic staryard has been captured by Spacers and Ecliptics). Only two of the three operational staryards sell components and entire ships (Deimos and Stroud-Eklund). In Trident Exotic Lines’ staryard, you can only book a cruise (you can’t, you get the idea).

I was disappointed to find out that you can’t steal the ship (it’s not even fully assembled). Maybe this Staryard is part of a quest.

How to Dock with Staryards and Board Them

Before you board a staryard, you must dock with it. The Steps are quite simple:

  1. Press E on PC or A on Xbox to cycle between targets until you select the Staryard.
  2. Approach the Stroud-Eklund Staryard within 500 meters (until you see the dock option on your target).
  3. Once the “Dock” option appears, hold down either R on PC or X on Xbox to initiate the docking procedure.
  4. Once you dock your ship, you can hold down X on PC to board the staryard.

Autonomous Staryard

The Autonomous Staryard was a self-sufficient shipbuilding facility, utilizing advanced robotic assembly lines for the efficient production of starships. After parting ways with their head robot programmer, the facility found itself in a precarious situation. Tasked with ramping up productivity, a less seasoned employeeunder immense pressure from managementattempted to tweak the robots’ work algorithms. Tragically, this modification backfired, triggering a system-wide revolt among the robots. Unleashing a wave of violence, they eradicated the entire human security team and staff, before returning to their original missionbuilding ships.

What to Do in Autonomous Staryard

You will mostly fight robots, hack computes, and find some great loot on your way to the Master Level locked cockpit and a Contraband Cache.

Deimos Staryard

You will find Deimos Staryard in Deimos’ orbit, near Mars, in the Sol System. Deimos has tight connections with Cydonia as it also operates mines to extract materials for its staryard. Business is not going great for Deimos after the Colony War, as they specialize in combat spaceships. Their ships have been battle-tested for decades, longer than any other ship manufacturer.

What to do in Deimos Staryard

Nikau has all the Deimos Docks, Landing Bays, Cockpits, Structural Components, Habs, and Landing Gear, so you can build a fully Deimos-themed combat ship here.

Stroud-Eklund Staryard

You must now be acquainted with Walter Stroud, one of Constellations’ members. He and his wife, Issa Eklund, own Stroud-Eklund, specializing in aesthetics and structural components. Stroud-Eklund is Starfield’s most represented ship manufacturer, as it also has a Showroom in Neon.

What to Do in Stroud-Eklund Staryard

In Stoud-Eklund Staryard, you can do pretty much all the staryard-related stuff, this time with a Stroud-Eklund flavor:

  • You can talk to Havershaw at the reception just past the main entrance or at the first to the left of the reception to use the Ship Builder or Upgrade menu and modify your ships. If you want to build a Stroud-Eklund-themed ship, Havershaw has all the Stoud-Eklund Dockers, Landing Bays, Cockpits, Structural Components, Habs, and Landing Gear.
  • You can also buy ships from Nikau Henderson:
    • Privateer: 146,000 Credits

  • You can start the Drydock Blues: Stroud-Eklund Staryard quest by speaking to Havershaw, as there is no Sales Computer here. Havershaw will request 500 units of Aluminum.

Trident Exotic Lines Staryard

You will find the Trident Exotic Lines staryard in Akila’s orbit in the Cheyenne System. Trident Exotic Lines operates a series of cruise ships. This is not a ship or parts manufacturer, so you won’t be able to get any ship components or ships. However, you will board one of their ships during the Breaking the Bank quest for the Crimson Fleet.

What to do at Trident Exotic Lines Staryard

There are just a few things to do in this staryard, as it doesn’t sell ship components or ships:

  • Start the Drydock Blues: Trident Exotic Lines Staryard misc mission at the Trident Exotic Lines Sales Computer. It requires you to deliver 500 Argon to the receptionist, Jia Chen.
  • Find Gladys Coffin inside the offices at the lower level. She is the Chief Designer for Trident Exotic Lines (and extremely famous, at least according to her). You can start the Fueling Greatness quest here, which requires you to get Gladys a Velocity bottle from Neon. Gladys Coffin - Trident Exotic Lines Staryard
  • Clear your Bounty at the Bounty Clearance Kiosk.
  • Accept missions at the Mission Board.

Nova Galactic Staryard

I don’t know (or don’t remember) the specific details of the Nova Galactic staryard’s demise, but it is abandoned and occupied by Ecliptics and Spacers. You will only visit it during “The Old Neighborhood,” main mission (that’s the second main mission), while searching for Moara Otero.
