In Starfield, each of the four Constellation companions offers unique gifts due to the time spent with you. Those proficient in ‘Botany,’ such as Sarah Morgan, tend to bestow organic materials like Metabolic Agent as symbols of your shared adventures.

However, acquiring Metabolic Agent from these companions, though a pleasant occurrence, isn’t the most effective way to gather large amounts. The amounts they give are usually small and are part of a collective pool of resources. Relying exclusively on a specific companion for Metabolic Agent might also restrict your gameplay strategies and options.
