This Week in Star Citizen
March 13th, 2017

Greetings Citizens

What a great weekend.

Community Manager Tyler Witkin and I went up to PAX East this weekend to meet up with backers, broadcasters (and even geek out over some other cool games) and had a blast. It’s always a highlight of my job to meet you guys in person, discuss the things you’re passionate about, and see you mix with other backers you otherwise might never have met. I think the next big event between now and then is the ever looming Gamescom, but that’s still so far away and maybe I can sneak myself into a few Bar Citizen events between now and then…

This week, we have some fun treats in store, including another special edition of 10 for the Chairman with special guest, Tony Zurovec. Chris and Tony address 10 questions submitted from and voted on by our development subscribers. The topic for this special edition is Professions in Alpha 3.0, with an emphasis on Cargo and Mining mechanics. You won’t wanna miss it.

Before that happens, Cherie Heiberg takes the hot seat in this week’s Quantum Questions, including dropping a major hint about our next concept ship coming down the pipeline, and Thursday’s ATV brings us the monthly studio update from the UK studio, which is always certain to impress.

Finally, on Friday, Tyler and I return for another Happy Hour broadcast. We’ve spent the last month experimenting with a rotating format for the show, most recently this last Friday with a return to the live interview format with Sean Tracy, Steve Bender and Jake Ross. We’ll continue this rotation in the future with additional installments of Gamedev, Museum, Interview, and more.

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

Community Spotlight: March 13th, 2017 – Storytellers

This week’s theme returns to “Storytellers,” those fan-fiction creations that see to further flesh out the potential Star Citizen universe. From prose to webcomics to video-series, storytelling is at the very heart of the Star Citizen experience, and what we have for you this week is just a small sampling from the way-back machine of fan fictions created in Star Citizen’s past.

So take a look, and don’t forget to check the Community Hub for all the latest contributions and upvote your favorites. You just might see them here in the near future.

Submono starts us off with Here Be Dragons which tells the story of a wayward pilot and his visual anomaly. In-between two jump points a pilot and his Freelancer are suddenly surrounded by glowing beings that appear to be sardine shaped. The pilot then turns off the Freelancer’s systems and seemingly floats with these new creatures. A story created from the desire for Star Citizen to be a wondrous place, Here Be Dragons is a fantastic short story.

You can check out the original thread here.

The Blackjack Gang

Next up we have this entry from Sutuul called The Blackjack Gang. Sutuil tells the story of a brother and sister that have joined a gang with cards of the deck carved on their helmets. While the story is short, it’s a fun adventure set in Star Citizen’s universe.

You can find the original story here.

Tem Barone

Tem Barone created a number of Choose Your Own Adventure stories back when where at the end of each entry, readers were given three different options of how the story will continue. It was a fun chance for the Star Citizen community back then to direct the outcome of his series.

You can check one of those stories out here.

The Adventures of Rooster and Zan

The Adventures of Rooster and Zan told the story of two lifelong friends traveling the ‘verse in a Cutlass. Initially started as a few guys trying to make a profit, the story eventually spanned multiple chapters.

You can find the original stories here.
