This Week in Star Citizen
February 27th, 2017

Greetings Citizens

Greetings citizens,

We’re gonna be short and to the point this week, cause we have a lot coming at ya this week.

Today saw the latest edition of Citizens of the Stars with special guests Bryan Brewer and Star Citizen Terallian. Bryan Brewer was the originator of the original “helmet flip” animation, and I for one wish he’d have said when we’d get it back! As always, Citizens of the Stars is a fun look at the work our Community does each and every week, and Subscribers should check it out for the latest Subscriber perks updates each week.

Tuesday brings us our February Subscriber’s Town Hall with John Crewe and Andrew Nicholson from the Flight Team. Questions are being taken from the thread in the new Spectrum Subscriber’s Den, so don’t miss your chance to add to the choices, and upvote the ones you most want to see addressed.

Wednesday is another edition of Mark Abent’s continuing quest to smash all bugs in existence, as well as the first of two Hurricane Q&A posts. Look for that thread in the Spectrum Announcements forum, and again, don’t forget to upvote the questions you most want to see addressed. Rock the vote, yo.

Thursday is always your day for the latest game updates on Around the Verse, where we cover a variety of topics related to the overall development of Star Citizen and Squadron 42.

For Friday, we’re excited that last week’s Happy Hour: Gamedev was well-received, and are extremely hopeful we’ll get to do another one at the end of March, but that doesn’t mean we’re done trying new things… or in this week’s case, a very old thing. For those of you who have been around these parts for awhile, you may remember the 19 Million Dollar Stretch Goal for the RSI Museum, well, we’re gonna use the occasional Happy Hour to fulfill that promise to examine those early games that feed into Star Citizen’s DNA, and we’re starting this Friday with “Pre-Christory,” a look at the games of Chris Roberts that preceded the release of his first big hit, Wing Commander.

So join Chris Roberts historian Ben Lesnick this Friday as we journey down Memory Lane with a look at the games that paved the way to Wing Commander.

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

Community Spotlight: February 27th, 2017 – YouTube Citizen

As you all know, there is no shortage of Star Citizen themed content consistently flowing through our Community Hub, Forums, and now Spectrum. YouTube videos/series are no exception! Over the years we have seen countless informative guides, tutorials, and trailers created by our talented Star Citizen community. Today we’d like to highlight a few of them that we found especially awesome.
