The Star Eagle Ship in Starfield is one of the ships you can get without spending any Credits, and without going through the somewhat time consuming act of building your own by visiting a Ship Technician. You will, however, need to put some time into doing specific quests to get your hands on it.

In Starfield the Freestar Rangers are kind of the space sherriffs of Freestar Collective space. There aren't that many of them but, for the most part, they are respected individuals. So, naturally, a Freestar Ranger needs a ship that can help them carry out their duties - the Star Eagle.

If you want it, we're here to show you how to get the Star Eagle Ship in Starfield.
