Starfield Akila City Guide: Vendors, Locations, and Quests
Akila City History and Lore
Akila City was the first city founded by Solomon Coe in the Cheyenne system. Settled in 2167, Akila City ended up as the capital of the Freestar Collective. It began as a small town with a single wall to protect it from the Ashta, a ferocious alien creature. Eventually, it expanded two more times, resulting in the different walls that encompass the city’s districts today. Even though the farms are outside of the wall, no one is allowed to leave at night, and only machines work the fields.
In 2221, the Freestar Rangers, headquartered in Akila City, are established to protect the citizens of the Freestar Collective. Presently, there are only a dozen Rangers, with the numbers dipping in the recent past. Under the urging of Walter Stroud, a recruitment campaign may be launched to bolster the Rangers efforts.
