Questlines & Factions
There are 5 Main Factions in Starfield, each one has a collection of quests associated to them. The main game is within the Constellation‘s storyline which is highly recommended to be the first major faction’s quests you complete purely from the vast amount of rewards and companions you get from it. After the Constellation, the order for the other 4 really doesn’t matter much.
You can join each of these factions.

Minor Factions – Few / No Quests
There are plenty of minor factions which you cannot join, these are usually enemies and contract-offering factions. They don’t have a home planet, city or anything.
They just offer contracts to locate people for a credit reward
This is a generic term describing any bad people in the game, this is the majority of enemies you fight. There is no allegiances and everyone is in it for themselves.
Very similar to Spacers, however, they are slightly more organised as a faction.
