Starfield: A Complete Overview of The Story So Far

The backstory begins in 2050, when humans first arrive on planet Mars. By the year 2100, mankind begins living in space. By 2156, humans arrive in Alpha Centauri, which is 4.37 light years away from Earth. The United Colonies are then established in the year 2159. Later in 2160, New Atlantis is founded and becomes the official capital city of the United Colonies. Cheyenne is settled by Solomon Coe, who founds its first settlement, Akila City in 2167. In 2188, Coe invites Volii to join Cheyenne in a new Aliance – The Freestar Collective. The Freestar Collective is officially formed in 2189.

In 2194, the United Colonies positions the star station called the Clinic in orbit around Deepala in the Narion system. The unaffiliated peoples of the Nation system see this as a UC attempt to expand their borders and demand the UC remove the When the UC refuses, the people of Narion vote to join the Heestar Collective, who mobilize to protect the system in 2195. Later in 2196, in response to Freestar mobilization, the UC moves a fleet into the Narion system and Freestar responds in kind, initiating the Narion War. The Narion War drags on in 2216, as public sentiment sours. Finally, the treaty of Narion is signed by the UC and Freestar collective in 2216, ending the conflict. The term “Settled Systems” is formed in the resultant treaty.

In 2221, the Freestar Rangers are founded as elite protective and investigative force dedicated to serving all citizens of the Freestar Collective. Later in 2275, Constellation is formed by Sebastian Banks, original members of which include Chloe Bao, accomplished physicist; Aja Mamasa, the youngest member and Sebastian’s protege; Darius Andris, botanist and specialist in xeno-flora; Bernadette Laurent, wealthy heiress and adventurer; Everado Gil, former smuggler, and Kadri Toma, biologist and physician. The Lodge is built in New Atlantis to serve the needs and people of Constellation for generations to come. In 2305, Barrett joins Constellation.

In 2307, the Freestar Collective begins farming on the planet of Vesta in the Lunara system. By 2308 the United Colonies claims that by establishing a colony in a fourth star system, the Freestar Collective has violated the Treaty of Narion. Diplomatic talks break down and the UC la, siege to Vesta, killing anyone who stayed behind (or was brought in) to defend it. The Colony War officially begins at this point.

In 2310, Constellation comes into possession of their first Artifact arid tucks it away in the Constellation archives. After several years of conflict, in 2311, the Colony War effectively comes to an end with the Battle of Cheyenne as a flotilla of civilian and military Freestar Collective ships takes down the major ships of the UC Navy using hit-arid-run tactics. By 2315, the UC Vanguard is founded as part of a UC response to the Freestar Collective’s use of civilian ships during the Colony War. The Vanguard is the UC’s own civilian navy, relying on civilians using their own ships, who pledged to protect the United Colonies arid its interests. The ultimate reward for this service is citizenship in the United Colonies.

By 2319, Sarah Morgan becomes the youngest head of the UC Navigator Cofps, though it’s a short-lived position as the division is shut down in 2320. Cast adrift, but still eager to put her training to good use, Morgan joins Constellation. In 2321, Walter Stroud co-Owner of Stroud-Ecklund, one of the Settled Systems’ premier starship manufacturers — joins Constellation and becomes its primary financial backer. By 2322, Former Crimson Fleet pirate Vladimir Sall joins Constellation. Later in 2325, Sarah Morgan becomes acting Chair of Constellation. In the same year, Theologian Mateo Khatri joins Constellation.

In 2326, Barrett finds the original Artifact in the Constellation archives and knows it must be special. In the same year, after months of correspondence with Sarah Morgan, graduate student and gifted scientist Noel is invited to join Constellation. In the next year in 2327, Freestar Ranger Sam Coe and his daughter Cora join Constellation. Meanwhile, Andreja joins Constellation in the year 2328. In the same year, Barrett convinces Constellation to purchase Starstation L-868 and modify it to become a deep spaoe scanner, nicknamed “The Eye”.

Two years later in 2330, the events of the game‘s story begin.
