There are seven starting Races to choose from in Starbound. Each race is unique in appearance and offers their own lore.

On their own the races are largely equal, but each race has their own default recipes and racial armors that will grant special abilities to each race at some point.

NPC RacesEdit

NPCs can come in every race naturally in the game. You can find different towns, castles, U.S.C.M bases, and labs all with different race inhabitants.

Examples of where you can find particular races:

USCM Penal Colony: Humans

Tree Village: Florans

Castles: Glitches

Avian Tombs: Avians

Research Facilities: Apex

Mushroom village: Agaran

Additional Non-playable Races:Edit
