Starbound features seven races. One of these races—the Floran—are asexual. Books and papers that you can find throughout the game explore the races in detail, including some of their perspectives on areas such as sexuality and gender. The characters you create within the game are given a binary gender, but can appear more masculine or feminine in their features and clothing choices, with other characters not caring about gender expression.

Although there are no romance options within the game, there are missions that allow you to interact with NPCs who have relationships. For instance, one quest allows you to help an NPC find their lost date, and this date can be the same gender as the NPC.
