The Startender is a space sentry in Nuka-World in 2287.


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.

This character has no special interactions.



Startender can kept in functional condition 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. The robot does not act as a merchant.


The Startender appears only in the Fallout 4 add-on Nuka-World.
