How to recruit Sarah Morgan in Starfield

Sarah becomes available during the early sections of the game as she accompanies you on a lot of missions. However, you can only recruit Sarah once you complete a specific quest in Starfield known as “The Old Neighborhood”. 

To start The Old Neighborhood quest, you first need to talk to Sarah who will let you know one of her contacts who can provide you with more information about the artifacts. This will prompt you to travel to Sol system to find Vanguard Moara and talk to him. 

Follow the instructions given to you by the quest and travel to planet Mars in the Sol star system. Once on Mars, make your way to Cydonia and talk to Jack. You can either pay Jack or use persuasion check to extract Moara’s location from him.

Jack will mention that Moara went towards Venus. Now you can go to Venus and look for him there but let us tell you it is a waste of time. Moara isn’t on Venus. Instead, you can skip all this and make your way to Nova Galactic Shipyard near Luna, Earth’s moon.


Clear the Nova Galactic Shipyard of the Ecliptic forces and make your way to the central portion of the shipyard. Make sure you loot every dead body if you wish to earn legendary armor through the Mantis quest.

In the central portion of the shipyard, you will see the fuselage of a ship that seems to be undergoing some repairs. Head inside it and on a table you will find Vanguard Moara’s data slate. Pick it up and read it. This will tell you that Moara actually went towards Neptune.

Fly to Neptune’s orbit and you will see Moara’s ship flying around until it eventually starts attacking you. Turns out it has been hijacked. Disable the ship and dock with it. Kill the pirates onboard to rescue Moara. Take the artifact from him and return to The Lodge.

Once you deliver the artifact, talk to Sarah again and she will join your crew in Starfield as a permanent companion.
