This Week in Star Citizen
February 6th, 2017

Greetings Citizens

Greetings Citizens,

Can you believe it’s already February? January was a month of hard work preparing Star Citizen Alpha 2.6.1 and Spectrum for launch… and it was a month of epic contributions from our incredible community. If you have not been keeping up, I highly encourage you to head over and check out all of the amazing content that has been submitted to the Community Hub.

So what’s going on this week?

Monday brings us the second episode of Citizens of the Stars, our new weekly program exclusively about our favorite part of the Star Citizen Universe, YOU! Does Character Artist Jeremiah Lee take the trophy from Ben Lesnick in another segment of Quantum Questions? You’ll have to watch to find out.

On Tuesday, the Lore team regales us with another installment in one of their many continuing series. One of my favorite things that come from these lore posts is the community voice-over renditions that inevitably follow.

On Wednesday, join Lead Writer Dave Haddock as he explores the Orion system on another informative episode of Loremaker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

On Thursday, we’ll touch base with the Austin studio. If you’re looking for all the latest development news on Star Citizen, you don’t want to miss out on this all new episode of Around the Verse.

Join us on Friday where we’ll broadcast LIVE at for another episode of Star Citizen Happy Hour, this time alongside Lead Writer Dave Haddock!

And that’s all for this week!

Wait.. no.. there’s more!? drumroll The January Monthly Report will be released on Friday! These reports provide an in-depth look at the on-going development of Star Citizen, with teams from around the globe sharing updates on their progress in the previous month.

And with that, we’ll see you in the ‘Verse!

Community Spotlight: February 6th, 2017 – Craft Citizen

The amount of contributions we see submitted to the Community Hub on a daily basis continues to amaze us. Last week, we took a look at some incredible videos created by the community; this week the theme is “Craft Citizen,” highlighting some of the detailed work created by all of you! Below you will find a few that stood out to us as being especially epic. Don’t forget to check the Community Hub for more and upvote your favorites. You just might see them here in the near future.

Flight Suit Cosplay by Valkyre

We are always excited when we see cosplay submissions on the Community Hub. Ben Valkyre created an album of his first flight suit and armor for Star Citizen using “EVA foam mats and lots of glue.” His flight suit looks great, and we eagerly await what he will come up with next!

Check out the full gallery here.

Vanduul PC Build by M0reP0wer

I instantly fell in love with how sleek this Vanduul PC Case is. We’ve been watching his forum thread as he updated his build to completion, and it looks amazing! M0reP0wer UV printed the Vanduul Glaive on top and laser-etched the Esperia logo in the front. Great job!

View the full album here.

Operation Pitchfork Jacket by Shadowma

Do you hate the Vanduul? Probably not as much as Shadowma, because he has created custom flight jackets dedicated to the citizen initiative to create a Vanduul-free Orion. With the help of his wife, he will take on the Vanduul in style!

We hope to see more soon!

Check out the rest of the photos here.

Stanton System Hologram by Admiral Wischmop

Admiral Wischmop (with the help of wernereisk4lt and KingNerd)created a Hologram map of the Stanton System using a laser cutting machine on acrylic glass, and it looks so sweet! We are constantly blown away by the creativity of our backers, and this is no exception.

Excellent work Adm. Wischmop!
