The Empty Nest mission console commands

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

startquest 000114C9

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 000114C9

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 000114C9 command to progress.
