Where to rename ships in Starfield

Starfield players can rename their ships by speaking to any Ship Technician. These vendors can be found all across the galaxy, and most major settlements and bases like New Atlantis or The Key will have at least one you can visit.

Once you find a technician, talk to them and select the option to ‘view and modify your ships’ to open the ship builder. From here you’ll have to navigate a number of menus.
