Acquaint yourself with the suitable rewarding quests for an early-game scenario in Starfield.

Among the massive diversity in the quests, you may get confused about which one to start with. Do remember that completing the Main Quest is rewarding but is massively time-consuming. So, regarding this situation, I urge it is best to set foot for exploring other quests that are way shorter and exceptionally rewarding. 

Key Takeaways

  • The best quests to do on the Viewport Mission board:
    • Destroy The Crimson Fleet Specter At Andromas
    • Deliver Vegetables To Polvo
    • Deliver Super Luminescent Dye To Polvo
  • On the Constellation mission board:
    • Survey Piazzi VII-A In Piazzi
  • Go to the UC Security Office in the Spaceport district and talk to Sergeant Yumi. He will assign you tasks, namely, “Keeping The Peace” and “A Break At Dawn.”
  • Following the Yumi questline, talk to Nyssa Marcano at Viewport. She will assign you a quest, “Distilling Confidence,” in which Yumi can help you.

Constellation Mission Board

Once you land in New Atlantis and follow the Main Quest (One Small Step), you will eventually end up in Lodge. 

After that, you will gain access to every locked door with the Lodge Key. To open the door to the downstairs, you must use a machine named Constellation Mission Board.

From there on, I had to complete four missions, each of which required a little effort:

  • Locate Diseased Biosphere In Lunara
  • Locate Gaseous Font In Carinae
  • Survey Piazzi VII-A In Piazzi (Best to do first)
  • Locate Turbulent Lithosphere In Alpha Tirna

Survey Piazzi VII-A In Piazzi

This was probably the least tiring quest I had to do among the four. You only have to Grav Jump to a new Solar System (Piazzi) above the New Atlantis.

Afterward, there will be a Moon around a Saturn-like planet named Piazzi VII-A. Although you can scan the planet, it will not survey it thoroughly. Therefore, I had to land on the surface of it.

Despite the “Extreme Environment” warning, you can land on this planet easily. This planet will comprise two resources.

These two resources will be in abundance around the surface. Scan them, and you will receive 1000 Credits as a reward.

Mission Board (Viewport)

A Mission Board will be in front of the bartender at the Viewport Plaza. Accessing the machine will give you new quests. 

The quests that best suit the early-game scenario will be less rewarding than others. But I consider them to be reasonable nonetheless.

  • Destroy The Crimson Fleet Specter At Andromas
  • Deliver Super Luminescent Dye To Polvo And/Or Deliver Vegetables To Polvo

Destroy The Crimson Fleet Specter At Andromas

It might be a tough decision for players with novice spacecraft control skills. This mission required you to engage in thrilling space combat. All you have to do is fast-travel to Androma’s planet location and search for the mission objective.

Once you have reached the area, you will see two spacecraft rushing towards you. I recommend that you keep your Shield maximum. In this scenario, you can compromise the Engine and use the points in the ship’s weaponry.

You can take out both ships even with basic knowledge of space combat. Clearing out the space from the Crimson Fleet ships will reward you 2650 Credits.

Deliver Super Luminescent Dye To Polvo

During my experience, accepting the delivery missions from the Mission Board was the easiest way to earn some credits. It requires a lot of storage available in your spaceship hull.

Because initially, you will not have many items to carry around. Also, the ship’s upgrade costs too much for a new player. 

This quest will ask you to travel to Polvo. Land in the Hopetown from thereon and the quest will be automatically completed. As a result, you will earn yourself an honest 1743 Credits.

Conditions are the same for the quest “Deliver Vegetables To Polvo.” Moreover, the reward is also likely the same, 1751 Credits. 

Keeping The Peace

UC Sergeant Yumi

A mission that will lead you to Sergeant Yumi. When you land on the New Atlantis, move forward and look to the right. There will be a UC Security office.

Enter the building and talk to Yumi on the right side. Your objective is to meet a higher post person in the MAST District regarding package delivery.

Once you reach there, talk to Agent Plato of the Aegis. He will guide you to where the package is. Return to the Spaceport, and on the right side, there will be a sitting bench, and the package will be underneath it. 

Once you have obtained the package, you must return it to Yumi. This is where he will consider you as a new part-time officer. As a result, you will receive 2,000 Credits at the end of the quest.

A Break At Dawn

Another mission by Sergeant Yumi. Enter the UC Security office anytime after completing the “Keeping The Peace” quest—one of the most effortless quests.

For this quest, travel to the Residential District. Find the Pioneer Towers on the right side of the office to talk with Royce Elgin.

After that, go to Athena Tower in the same district. Talk to Hugo Fournier and persuade him to give you the ring back there. Once it’s done, return the wedding ring to the Spaceport UC Security office.

You can either hand him over the ring and gain 2,000 Credits or keep the ring to yourself. I would recommend that you hand over the ring to Yumi.

Distilling Confidence

Starfield Viewport

I found New Atlantis a favorable place for newcomers, namely the Viewport. Once you enter this building, head straight to talk to the bartender, Nyssa Marcano. She will indulge you with her story of how she is tense regarding her package’s arrival.

Her package lies in the Security Impound Storage. There will be no easy way to access the impound. However, you can ask a favor from Yumi regarding this matter.

Following this, do remember that Yumi will only favor you if you complete his two quests (“Keeping the peace” and “A break at dawn”). Completing the second quest requires you to hand him over the wedding ring. 

After that, he will provide you with a UC Security Keycard to access the impounded storage. A guard may try to stop you from entering, but with this keycard you do not have to persuade him.

Just ignore the dialogue options and move on to the ID Reader. It will open the door, and you can get your package.

Return to Nyssa Marcano. She will be delighted and will reward you with 2,000 Credits

New Atlantis and the Neon City are the best wagers to gather most of the quests in Starfield. The game offers remarkable rewards at the end of major quests. So, do not be afraid to take on challenging adventures as you venture through the dark and vacant vacuum. 

What Are The Best Quests?

I would personally suggest that you stroll through MAST and Commercial Districts. Both places are filled with events that offer generous rewards upon completing a quest.

Although those mentioned above are the quests suitable when you land on New Atlantis, there is still much to explore. In every district, try to interact with every shop owner or NPC with a unique and proper name. Some may assign you a simple task, whereas some may require assistance for a hard-dedication quest.
