How to recruit all companions in Starfield
First of all, a distinction must be made regarding the type of companions. There are those that you can recruit during the main missions, those that can only be recruited if you complete specific side missions, and those that can simply be hired. Note well that to hire a companion you will need a fair amount of credits available, but you can lower the credits needed by making use of the persuasion system.
Below, we will explain in detail how to recruit all the companions related to the game's missions, whether they are main or secondary.
How to recruit Sarah Morgan
In order to ask Sarah Morgan to join your crew, you must first complete the main quest The Old Neighborhood. Once you have acquired the second artifact of the game in Cedonia, in the Solar System, Sarah will decide that your cause is hers to her liking and she will decide to take part in your adventure. Once you add the artifact to the collection in New Atlantis, therefore, you will have the possibility to ask her to be part of your crew.
How to recruit Vasco
Vasco is the first companion you will travel with once you leave Vectera and will accompany you until you arrive in New Atlantis. Once you have completed the One Small Step mission and arrived at The Lodge, return to the Constellation Headquarters in New Atlantis to speak with Vasco and accept his request to become part of your team.

In order to recruit this character, all you have to do is choose the Hero Worshiped trait when you are creating your character. If you have this trait equipped, the Adoring Fan can be found during your first visit to New Atlantis in the One Small Step mission. In case you didn't meet him on this occasion, you will after finishing The Old Neighborhood quest.
How to recruit Rafael Aguerro
You will first meet this character during the Entangled mission. Telling you exactly what you will have to do in this mission would be spoilery so we will just say that at the end of the mission you will be presented with a choice: if you choose Rafael, this will allow you to recruit him to your team.
