In Memoriam Bug & Fixes

The In Memoriam Bug is a glitch that affects the character of Sarah Morgan, who is a potential companion and romance option for players. This bug prevents players from recruiting or romancing Sarah Morgan and may cause various issues within the gameplay.

  • The bug can lead to issues such as dialogue errors during interactions with Sarah Morgan.
  • It may prevent players from progressing in the In Memoriam quest, making it impossible to complete the associated storyline.
  • In some cases, the bug has been associated with game crashes or freezes.

Players encountering the In Memoriam Bug in Starfield have sought various workarounds to address this glitch. While these fixes are not guaranteed to work for every player, they have been reported as potential solutions to resolve the issue. It’s advisable to back up saves before attempting major changes. Keep an eye out for official patches from Bethesda, which may address and resolve this bug in the future.

From my experience, here are some workarounds:

Restart And Load

  • Quit Starfield and restart your game.
  • Load the saved game where the In Memoriam quest is glitched.
  • Sometimes, a simple restart and loading the correct save can resolve the issue.

Complete Another Mission

  • Try completing another mission or quest before returning to the In Memoriam quest.
  • Progressing through a different quest might reset variables and flags, allowing you to proceed with In Memoriam.

Switch Ships

  • Visit a Ship Services Technician near a spaceport.
  • Choose “I’d like to view and modify my ships.
  • Select a different ship as your “home ship” and see if the issue persists.

Add/Remove Sarah from the Ship’s Crew

  • Access your ship’s menu from the character menu.
  • Open the crew tab and interact with Sarah’s profile to add or remove her from the crew.
  • Adjust her crew status to see if it resolves the bug.

Try Waiting

  • If the above methods fail, try fast traveling to a different location and interacting with Sarah.
  • Alternatively, sleep or wait for a few hours or until the day of the ceremony and check if it triggers the quest progress.

However, there’s a bug in Starfield that can make this quest frustrating. Players have found some ways to fix it, like restarting the saved game or completing other missions first. While these fixes might not work for everyone, the Starfield community is dedicated to finding solutions.
