In their Footsteps mission console commands

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

startquest 002B1B8E

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 002B1B8E

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 002B1B8E command to progress.
