  1. Open the Main Menu and navigate to the ‘Character’ section.
  2. Click on the ‘Ship’ tab that can be found at the bottom left of the page.
  3. From the ‘Ship’ tab, you’ll be able to access the Crew menu by either pressing C on your keyboard or the Y button on Xbox.

Once you’re on the menu, you’ll be able to see details about all your crew members, including their skills and where they’re currently assigned. If you think a specific person would be more useful somewhere else, simply click on their name, and all of the available locations will appear. To reassign them, simply select the location you want.

You can either send your crew members somewhere else on your ship or to an outpost that you’ve built as long as there is enough space. If there isn’t enough room, you’ll need to unassign some of the members already stationed there first.
