Starfield Classes [Character Classes & starter Abilities]

All Starfield classes will be covered on this page. Character classes could play an important aspect, even though it seems all classes or backgrounds in Starfield will be able to master all abilities or skills. It seems some have a nack for a certain set of skills from the get-go.
Starfield backgrounds are the foundation of your character, no matter your starfield faction.
