The Startender is a bartender-space sentry in the Starlight Interstellar Theater. It guards one of the star cores needed to fire up the mainframe in the zone. Ironically, it serves questionable function as a bartender as it has no hands, as commented on in the employee terminal in the projector room. It is hostile when encountered unless the defensive mode of Star Control has been disabled by acquiring at least 20 star cores.
Interactions with the player characterEdit
The Startender can be kept alive by either using the robotics perk to hack it and shut it down in order to obtain the Star Cores in the theater, or by avoiding the theater until Star Control is completed. Either way, it has nothing interesting to say and, despite being a bartender, does not act as a merchant.
