How to Get Dr. Sohla Banglawala encounter in Starfield

The Dr. Sohla Banglawala encounter is rare and can happen anywhere. It mostly happens during space travel. You will receive an incoming hail from Dr. Sohla Banglawala which you can answer. Accept her hail, and she will explain that she is a scientist in search of Platinum, Vanadium, and Lithium. If you have these minerals, you can offer them to her.

Otherwise, you can refuse. Instead of ending, the encounter will remain ongoing. Dr. Banglawala will then try to go, but her Grav Drive will not respond. She will ask you about your hobbies and then tell a joke which will become a cliffhanger.

Just before she reaches the punchline, her Grav Drive will activate and she will disappear. It is quite funny if you like that sense of humor.
