Where to find the Starborn Trader in Starfield
As far as we can tell, the Starfield Starborn Trader only appears in New Game Plus. You can learn more about the mechanics and facets in our NG+ guide.
In any case, the reason why we feel that they're an NG-only NPC is because they referred to our character as Starborn, and they also introduced themself as another multi-universal being.
Starborn Trader location
We met the Starfield Starborn Trader in Feynman I, which is in the Feynman system. Upon jumping to orbit, a certain Mysterious Captain hailed our ship. After a short conversation, they said: "I cater to Starborn, a very exclusive and specialized crowd. You can call me... the Trader."
Starborn Trader items
We were floored the moment we checked the Mysterious Captain's wares. These include all sorts of epic and legendary items, as well as unique materials. Even the rare weapons had unique names. Here are some examples:
- Legendary heavy: Frenzy Calibrated Negotiator
- Legendary particle beam rifle: Demoralizing Calibrated Va'ruun Inflictor
- Rare rifle: Avatar
- Rare rifle: The Last Breath
- Unique material: Aldumite
- Unique material: Vytinium
As an aside, when we closed the shop's inventory and reopened it, the legendary items disappeared. We then attempted to fast travel and wait to pass the time, but we didn't see the items again. This might be a bug, or it could just be an issue with restocking wares after some time.
Lastly, the Starborn Trader in Starfield is marked as essential. We attempted to disable the ship's engines, and there was no way to board it. The ship's hull was also automatically repaired after a short while.
Starfield is a massive game with numerous planets to explore. For other tips and tactics, you can visit our guides hub.
