Starfield is officially out now, and some players are encountering a problem in the game, specifically during the “Deep Cover” mission, where the UC Vigilance door to the docking station refuses to open, leaving them stranded on the ship. But you need to get through this door to progress in the quest, right? So, how to fix this issue? Keep reading to know the answer.
The issue with the quest “Deep Cover” in Starfield that’s causing confusion is that after talking to the captain on the UC Vigilance, the quest tracking sometimes reverts to a previous mission, leading players to approach a locked door with no clear objective marker. This can leave players stuck without guidance on how to proceed. But, as always, we have shared some effective workarounds to get rid of this bug. So, continue reading until the end for more details.
Starfield UC Vigilance Door Not Opening Bug: Is there any fix yet
Well, this is indeed a bug that has not been fixed or addressed yet. So, as of writing this article, there is no official fix for this issue. Still, there are players who have managed to get past this bug and complete the mission. So, in the absence of an official fix, these workarounds are your best bet to fix the issue.
Before moving on with any other potential fixes, the first thing you need to do is close the game and then restart it again. Start the quest and try getting past the door. If luck favors you, this simple workaround will do the trick for you.
Ignore the Door
The most effective workaround for this issue involves ignoring the locked door entirely. Instead, players should head to the UC Vigilance Operations Center using the nearby elevator. In this room, they should interact with Commander Kibwe Ikande, who is located at the back of the room with arms placed in front. Following this conversation, players should also speak with LT. Jillian Toft, who can be found on the right-hand side of the same room. Completing these conversations should reset the quest tracking for “Deep Cover” and allow players to continue with the quest as intended. This workaround avoids the confusion that the locked door causes and enables more fluid quest progression.
Reload Previous Save
If the issue persists and the above-mentioned workaround does not work, reloading a previous save may be necessary. This, however, might result in losing progress in the game. Nevertheless, after loading a previous save, head to the same area and see if the quest marker bugs out again.
Wait for Day 1 Patch
Since Starfield was just officially released for everyone after a 5-day early access period, it is possible that a Day 1 patch will be released that might fix all in-game issues. Developers often work diligently to address these issues in the Day 1 patch update. Therefore, waiting for a patch/update for the game to permanently get rid of this bug might be the best thing to do right now. But note that since there is official confirmation on the same, take this information with a pinch of salt.
