If Starfield takes one thing from Elite Dangerous, I hope it’s bus driving

My enormous space bus is easing its way into a slowly spinning space station when I get a mission-critical message from one of my passengers. As I always do when something unexpected happens in Elite Dangerous, I panic. I throw my bus into reverse to disable the autodock computer just meters from the entry to the station, and then try to veer away from the station’s entrance. It doesn’t work and it’s not pretty. My big, long space bus bumps and clunks around inside the narrow entrance for an embarrassing amount of time, and I even clip another ship as I’m turning it around to exit.

A minute and several expletives later, I hover safely outside the station and open the urgent message from my passenger. He’s offering me a payment bonus if I get him to his destination quickly.
