Overdesigned is one of the best side quests in Starfield, as it lets you get your hands on one of the best early-game ships, the Kepler R. It's possible to mess up and get the Kepler S. So, let's go over how to unlock and complete the Starfield Overdesigned quest and how to get the Kepler R.
Starfield Overdesigned Walkthrough
Talk to Walter Stroud
Head to Stroud Eklund Shipyard
Grav Jump to the Stroud Eklung Shipyard located in the orbit of the Dalvik planet in the Narion Star System. Hail and dock the Staryard, and make your way inside.
Talk to Jules
Once you're inside the Staryard, make your way to the Starship design team's meeting room. Talk to Jules, who is in charge of the project, and take the reigns from her.
Decide a Budget
Your first task will be to decide on a budget for the Starship design. You can choose a smaller budget or a larger one. If you want the Kepler R, pick the larger budget. This will require a fairly difficult Persuasion check or 100000 Credits out of your own pockets. You can make multiple save files to keep attempting the Persuasion check till you succeed.
Talk to Team Members
Speak to all the team members, including Jules, about their ideas for the Starship design. If you want the Kepler R, encourage all the team members.
Speak with Jules About Market Research
Jules will now assign you the task of performing live research for data they can use for the Starship. This means you'll have to perform some space-related tasks for them.
Complete a Passenger/Bounty Mission Board Quest
Your next task is to perform either a Bounty Mission or a Passenger Mission from the local mission board.
It's optional to do both quests, and you can still get the Kepler R if you only do one of them. We suggest you grab a ship with a larger crew capacity for the Passenger mission.
Bring the Team Together
Lastly, you can ask the team to compromise on their demands or have a strange mediation session where everyone recites your mantras. Picking the mediation session is the way to the Kepler R.

Kepler R vs Kepler S
The Kepler R is the larger variant between the two ships, and besides its bulkiness, it is superior to the Kepler S in every way. However, there's a caveat. You can only pilot the Kepler R if you have the piloting skill at Rank 4 because it's a C-class ship.
On the other hand, the Kepler S is a smaller B-class ship that you can pilot more easily. The Kepler R will serve you better in the long term due to its superior stats and price.
That concludes our guide for the Starfield Side Quest Overdesigned and everything you need to know about how to get the Kepler R and Kepler S.
