In case you weren’t aware, Starfield has multiple factions in the game that players can align themselves with. One of these factions is the Crimson Fleet Pirates, a group of ruthless explorers who take whatever they please. Joining them requires you to interact with them in one of two different ways, either by getting arrested, or joining the Vanguard. Each one will have you cross paths with the derelict group of scallywags in a different way, with the option of joining them later in some dialogue.
