It can happen to anyone, where all of a sudden you find yourself outside and on top of your freighter base. No friends around to rescue you and you really don’t want to die or reload a save. Do not worry, as long as you have the resources to build your way back inside, there is a solution.
The Fleet Command Room has a doorway on one end, but you’ll have to place it somewhere to be able to get inside. Materials needed are 120 Silver, 40 Gold, and 10 Tritium. It requires to be attached however, so find a good spot for this first and make sure to use the Build Camera. If need be, use Freighter Stairs to attach the Fleet Command Room higher up. You will still not be able to get back in just yet, until you remove the part that is attached to it (room, corridor, or stairs). Now you can get inside the Fleet Command Room, to then build back the part you removed prior. This will then be your way back inside the freighter
Outside and on top the Freighter, yay

If you are lucky and tell this trick to someone in dire need of freighter rescue, you may get rewarded just like I did
