How to get Uranus Joke in Starfield?

To trigger the Uranus Joke in Starfield, you must be flying around the unfortunately named planet found in the Sol system. You can not land on it, but you scan it. Uranus has five moons: Titania, Umbriel, Ariel, Miranda, and Oberon.  

After you scan the planet, you will be approached by a random ship asking you whether you know the way to Uranus. You can answer either of these two options  

  • [Yeah, I do] 
  • [No, no idea] 

If you go with the first option the ship will reply with an affirming confirmation and then say “Of course you do, it’s right behind you” and then leave. If you go with the second option, they will just leave.

You may not find it hilarious at all or you could be rolling on the floor laughing. Either way, it is a nice random encounter to have while you are cruising through space.
