This Week in Star Citizen
March 6th, 2017

Greetings Citizens

We say it every week, but it continues to stand true: It’s been an eventful and exciting week!

Last week, Cloud Imperium Games staff attended GDC 2017 where we represented Star Citizen at the Amazon Lumberyard booth. It was a fantastic experience where we met backers, students, industry professionals, and hundreds of first time pilots. I’d like to take a moment to thank all of the volunteers who worked tirelessly to help operate the booth. We could not have done it without you!

So, what’s going on this week?

Monday brings another episode of Citizens of the Stars, a show that revolves around the incredible Star Citizen community. Will Development Director Brian Chambers become the new Quantum Champion? You’ll have to watch to find out!

Every Tuesday, another lore post is released, expanding the lore and narrative that makes up the Star Citizen universe and this week is no exception! If you’re interested in immersing yourself in our vast universe, these posts are for you. You can also browse previously released posts here.

If the lore post is not enough, you won’t want to miss this Wednesday’s detailed episode of Loremaker’s Guide to the Galaxy, where Senior Writer Will Weissbaum explores the Kiel system. And if you find yourself still craving more, make sure to head over to the Ark Starmap to explore all corners of the Star Citizen universe.

Thursday brings a new episode of Around the Verse, fresh and hot off the press. These episodes grant us a great opportunity to peek behind closed doors, deep-dive the complexity that is game development, and get to know the people working tirelessly on the project behind the scenes.

On Friday, Community Manager Jared Huckaby and myself will be heading to Boston for PAX East. Look out for us on the show floor all weekend long… we’ll have some goodies to hand out while supplies last! We are also looking forward to spending Saturday evening with all of you attending the community organized Bar Citizen event. You can find all the details about that event here.

With the Community Team away at PAX East, we are exploring some alternatives for our weekly livestream. We’ll have an update on that later in the week. As the saying goes, the show must go on!

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

Albator has captured an image that can be described in one word: Focus. With an Aurora in their sights, this pilot is ready to go!

Awesome picture Albator!

Narayan has managed to position himself perfectly to capture the eclipse of Yela. We can’t imagine the effort capturing this beautiful moment took. Fantastic job!

This image by Dr_Krueger captures the scale of the Constellation Andromeda perfectly. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I had to load up 2.6.1 and take my Connie out for a flight after coming across this beauty.

Do I really need to say anything about this screenshot?

This. Is. Epic.
