Trade Authority overview

The Trade Authority faction is a Minor faction that you can encounter in Starfield.

Starfield factions can provide unique Starfield armor, Starfield weapons, and even faction-specific missions at various points during your playthrough. Each group possesses its own unique idealogy and doctrine, along with a unique range of NPCs and enemies (should you get on their bad side). Should you wrong a faction you’re friendly with, you’ll accrue a bounty, which you’ll need to clear at a Tracker’s Alliance bounty board, or face bounty hunters, a jail cell, or unrelenting hostility.

If you’ve been caught committing a crime within Trade Authority territory, you may find yourself wracking up a bounty that exceeds anything you can hope to pay off at a Self-Service Bounty Clearance terminal. Alternatively, you might have encountered a Starfield bug that prevents you from clearing your bounty. Fortunately, there’s a Starfield console command that can help you fix that:

If that doesn’t work, numerous users have reported that activating god mode with the tgm command and surrendering to the faction has resolve their issue.
