Starfield Talk to Sergeant Yumi Glitch Fix

Those experiencing issues with the Talk to Sergeant Yumi glitch must complete the Eyewitness quest since it seems to resolve the problem shortly after. Although the sergeant is available to talk at any time, the mission prevents users from progressing further with his storyline. Given that the Eyewitness objective involves Yumi, this could explain why the glitch occurred in the first place.

You may need to finish other United Colonies quests, specifically with the UC Vanguard, if you are still experiencing the problem. Once you’ve done enough, you can activate the mission again, and the sergeant should be able to converse with you. Players can speak with Yumi to unlock work opportunities for credits, and they can check back with him to see if there’s anything else available.

When walking around Jemison, you’ll typically trigger another ‘Talk to Sergeant Yumi’ Activities storyline, as other characters suggest you see him. Sometimes, he will tell you to return at another time so you can wait until the next soldier gives you the order.

Those who’ve reached the end of the questline will be told by Yumi himself, indicating that you no longer need to visit him. Based on my experience, it doesn’t take too long to finish as long as you’ve completed the Eyewitness mission.
