Instead, general stores are the most likely place to obtain Ship Parts. By far the easiest location, one you’ll pass frequently, is Jemison Mercantile in New Atlantis.

Since you’re always coming back to the Lodge during the main story, it’s good to make a habit of stopping there. In fact, as soon as you land, make a left after passing the security checkpoint and you’ll see Jemison Mercantile straight ahead. You can’t miss it!

If you’re, say, out in the furthest reaches of space, with no general store in sight, you can also find Ship Parts from looting starships you destroyed. After you’ve decimated an enemy ship, ride up real close to their dropped cargo and loot it. You have a good chance of coming across Ship Parts.

Of course, if you’d prefer to help starship pilots rather than murder them, you can also receive Ship Parts as a reward for answering their distress signals. After the dust settles, open your scanner, highlight the ship, and choose ‘Hail.’ When they offer an award, ask for extra repair parts.

That’s every way you can get Ship Parts in Starfield, folks. You can buy it, loot it from destroyed ships, and receive them as quest rewards. Just be sure to have the space for it in your ship inventory given their hefty mass.
