Your ship is your best friend in Starfield. You can do everything with your ship, from exploring the galaxy to stealing other ships. In the initial hours of your Starfield journey, you’ll have to dock your ship, be it for quest or just exploration. At first, I was confused about how to perform this action, but it’s incredibly straightforward.

In Starfield, you can dock your ship into other ships and space stations such as the Deimos Staryard and The Clinic. After you’ve identified your target, follow the steps below to learn how to dock:

  • Aim towards the ship and press the select target input (E on keyboard and A on controller). This will scan the target in your crosshairs and display its name.
  • Get within 500 meters range of the ship and the option to dock will appear.
  • Hold down the dock input (R on keyboard and X on controller). You’ll then go through a small animation of docking into the target vessel.
