This Week in Star Citizen
March 20th, 2017

Greetings Citizens

The hardest part of this each week is figuring out how to start these. How was your weekend? Mine was good. Thanks for asking. Let’s get to what’s coming this week, shall we?

Today’s Citizens of the Stars features Head Honcho of our Austin Studio John Erskine in the Quantum Questions hotseat, and a highlight on Mr. Hasgaha and his continuing work leading the pack in Star Citizen screenshots.

Wednesday brings us a Banu-themed Loremaker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Is this the time we finally find out where the Banu homeworld is?! The answer is no. Sorry, I don’t know where I was going there. I’m not the hype guy.

Thursday of course is Around the Verse day, where you’ll always find the latest in Star Citizen development news. This week’s show cycles back around to another LA Studio Update, and I hear there’s more things in there than you can shake a cutlass at. Did I do that right? I hope I wasn’t too subtle.

Then to close out the week, Happy Hour cycles back to our next Gamedev-themed episode. This week, instead of creating a creature live on broadcast, Technical Designer Calix Reneau will try his hand at creating a first-pass game mechanic from scratch for inclusion in the game. What will that mechanic be? There’s a hint in last week’s ATV

Coming up next week, keep an eye out for our next Subscriber’s Town Hall on Tuesday with members of the team at Turbulent where they’ll discuss everything from Spectrum to the launcher and more.

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

You can find out more about them here.

Knaarks’ Geschwafel

I’ll let Knaarks tell you about this one:

In Knaarks’ Geschwafel ist der Name Programm, denn ich versuche, so gut es mir eben möglich ist, Star Citizen zu erklären und auch ein paar News auszugraben und als Podcast zu veröffentlichen. Klingt komisch, ist aber so.

You can learn more about his podcast here.

Tales of Citizens

Tales of Citizens is a discussion podcast where they dissect important issues and try their best to shed light on controversial questions, while providing what insight they can through thought provoking discussion.

They record Monthly on Sundays @ 7pm EST on and Show notes can be found at
