This Universe Or Rafael Starfield: Which Is Best?

In Starfield, choices are far from superficial – every action counts, shaping not only the storyline but also the rewards and allies you accumulate.

One of the most perplexing decisions comes in the Entangled quest. In this high-stakes mission, you find yourself at a crossroads: should you save an entire universe, or should you save Rafael, a sole survivor in an alternate world?

Below, we break down the implications of each choice and the rewards that follow.

This Universe Or Rafael: Starfield Entangled Mission Choice

The choice kicks off with a conversation with a doctor, but don’t be fooled; this is just a conversational dialogue.

The real decision-making happens later in a room filled with switches that essentially dictate the fate of a world or a person.

The room has two distinct environments: one that represents Rafael’s world filled with creatures and another symbolizing the universe inhabited by the doctor and various personnel.

Your choice boils down to which set of switches you decide to turn off and subsequently shut down.

Option 1: Save the Universe

By choosing to save the universe (the doctor’s world):

  • Rewards: You get 17,800 credits and a Legendary Experimental Space Suit.
  • Aftermath: All personnel survive, and they promise to honor Rafael’s memory.

Option 2: Save Rafael

By deciding to save Rafael’s world:

  • Rewards: You receive ingredients, materials, and 13,800 credits
  • Aftermath: The entire facility and its personnel are wiped out, and you’ll have to battle your way off the planet. Rafael will join your crew if you drop him off at New Atlantis.

At the time of writing, choosing to save Rafael hasn’t had repercussions later in the storyline. However, the possibility remains that this could affect future events, perhaps making it a factor in a New Game Plus.

Overall, both choices in the Entangled quest come with a set of pros and cons – be it in the form of credits, materials, or even moral satisfaction.

If you prioritize in-game rewards like suits and credits, saving the universe seems to be the more lucrative option.

However, if the idea of a new crew member entices you, saving Rafael could be more beneficial.

The choice is ultimately yours to make. Either way, this quest exemplifies the richness of the moral and ethical dilemmas in Starfield.
