He starts talking about Starship at 0:58:50 until about 1:04:00

He expects a permanent base on the moon using the Starship lander. He likens it to have an Antarctic base.

He explains how it will be caught by launch tower and placed right back onto launch platform, refueled and ready to go within hours.

Starship too will land right beside launch tower. Starship is intended to be used several times a day. He talks about 1,000 flights a year. More starships will be built than boosters.
