I was able to take all of the items out of the storage container, but now it looks like I need to find some kind of fuel to power my trip to the surface of the planet.

How do I get out of this room?

Fuel is used to fly to different planets, it is not needed to power the teleport. – Kexlox Jan 26 '14 at 15:01
It still never ceases to amuse me how many new Starbound players can't figure out how to escape their spaceship. – Zibbobz Jan 28 '14 at 14:46
Dude. I had this exact same problem the first time I played. I think they've made it a little more obvious than it was back in the day. Before I'm pretty sure you had to stand on the pad (which isn't obviously a teleportation pad) and push a button without prompt. It's weird to have a combination "mouse hover + keyboard button press" be something you just guess to do. Of course that was back when teleporting would just respawn you back in your ship 4/5 times you tried to go down to the surface. – Preston Fitzgerald Dec 14 '14 at 3:52

You have two options:

  • walk on top of the blue round (square in 2D) teleporter to the left and then press E while hovering your mouse over it, or
  • click the down arrow (V) in the corner while standing anywhere in the ship.
