How to recruit Dani Garcia in Starfield

Dani Garcia can be recruited as a crew member from the Euphorika bar in the Ebbside neighborhood of Neon on the planet Volii Alpha in the Volii System. In order to hire her, you first need to agree to her request to pursue her research while a member of the crew. 

Once accepted, you can hire her for a flat fee of 12000 credits. Alternatively, you also have the opportunity to Persuade her to reduce her fee. Either consume a drink that boosts your Persuasion skill beforehand or quicksave before your attempt to make sure you get a successful persuasion. Once you’ve sorted a price, pay her the money and she will join your crew.
