The living ships in No Man’s Sky are organic, living ships that you can pilot in space. They’re as disgusting as they are awesome, and in this guide, we’re going to tell you everything you need to know to get a Void Egg, where the living ships come from.
To get your hands on a Void Egg, you’ll need to travel to space and summon the Anomaly. Once this is done, visit the Quicksilver merchant. You can buy a Void Egg there for 3200 Quicksilver. If you don’t have enough Quicksilver, then it’s time to knock out some daily and weekly missions at the Nexus.
What does an empty egg do?
The Void Egg is the key to starting the new mission to get your ship alive. With the Void Egg in your inventory, you must make your way to the vastness of space and then start chain jumping. It will take a random number of chain jumps to trigger your Void Egg, so you can focus on the jumps until it happens or just let it happen naturally if you want to focus on other things. When the Void Egg finally activates, you will receive a message on your communicator. This is the start of the Starbirth storyline, so be sure to keep some detailed notes from this point on.
Record the message you may receive, as there are thirteen possible messages you may receive. You will receive new messages at what appear to be random intervals. The first twelve messages are references to some glyph locations that you will need later, while the last will indicate which galaxy you need to advance the quest.
After that comes a long chain of events that we’re still working on, but we’ll have some relevant guides for you as soon as we get into this new quest.
