First Contact overview

First Contact is a Starfield Miscellaneous quest. Like all other Starfield missions, you can find the full details of First Contact in your mission log, and you can easily find your next objective location by following the quest marker, or by entering the scanner mode and following Starfield’s breadcrumb trail.

First Contact is preceded by no particular mission, and followed by no confirmed quest.

First Contact objectives

Most Starfield missions consist of several objectives that you must complete to advance the quest. As you complete each objective, your journal will be updated with the next objective.

First Contact mission console commands

If you just want to start the First Contact mission, all you need to do is enter the following Starfield console command to begin:

startquest 00258694

Be warned that attempting to start a quest that requires specific triggers or hidden markers can result in game instability, so it is recommended you save your game before trying any commands. If however you are encountering a Starfield bug that prevents the mission from advancing, you might want to try the following:

resetquest 00258694

The above command will completely reset a quest (make sure you save your game beforehand in case it causes a crash to desktop). It also has the potential to prevent that quest from ever completing, meaning you’ll need to use the completequest 00258694 command to progress.
