    How do I unlock the tech station, or force it to unlock?

    Which are you referring to as the tech station? What is it you are trying to make?
    Could be it is something that was changed along the way in development.

    If you're talking about the Tech Lab in the Outpost, I think it unlocks by doing obstacle course quests for the Apex scientist in the room. The quests unlock the tech abilities, and also unlock the lab so you can purchase the upgraded techs. At least, I think I remember having access to it before even doing the Erchius Mining Facility. However, it has been a while, so I'm not completely sure.

    Have you done the quests for him yet?

    The Tech Table is only avaiable after bringing *Winston* materials like copper,iron,gold,titanium after that he will give you an obstacle course and when you end any of them you will gain instant access to both tables in Tech Room as well as the tech you were using to beat the obstacle course

    Are there any console commands to forcibly give myself abilities or forcibly give myself the missions?

    Thats the thing, I'm totally locked out. There is no big ! above their head.

    and with nothing in your quest book?
    Maybe you already picked it up, but the tracking of the quest notification shifted to an other quest?

    As Thorin said, you should check the quest log to see if you did grab it sometime. The quest you're looking for is Let's Get Technical.

    It was not picked up. I am completely locked out.

    In that case, I'm all out of ideas...

    It has not been grabbed. The quest is not in my quest book.

    Darn, then I have not a lot of options either.
    You can try it with the 10 copper ingots in hand/bag, after you made one in the furnace, maybe that's the hidden trigger for it.
    Or try it with a different character and the ultimate option would be to start over including a new universe.

    I recently started playing starbound again and it didn't had this quest unlocked too in the beginning. I already came there before I had even made a copper ingot, later when I made my first armor and came back. He had the exlcamation marker above his head.

    But then again, you already beat the Erchius facility, so I would think you already made some ingots.

    The quest is not in my log look, the quest is not activated.
    The quest is also not being offered.

    I think playing in other instances that aren't your own glitch the quests

    Oh, I just assumed you were playing solo the whole time.

    I have heard of unlocks getting glitched out when playing with friends. I think it's because, when playing with others, things you unlock get unlocked in the "universe" of whoever is hosting. However, I'm not exactly sure what this applies to. The worst I had to do was repeat a couple of minor quest since I originally completed them when I was playing in a friend's game via Steam. Certainly nothing as major as trying to unlock tech lab access, though.

    Did you initially complete the tech questline while in another player's game or server?
