This Week in Star Citizen
November 16, 2020

Happy Monday, everyone!

So, it turns out the (virtual) Star Citizen Cosplay Contest presented us with certain difficulties. Fortunately, the problem we had was determining just three winners from the many fantastic entries! Please join me in congratulating the four top three costumes and marvel at the honorable mentions.

Also last week, many of you joined us in testing the new location of this year’s Intergalactic Aerospace Expo on the PTU servers. The paint might still be wet in the all-new convention center but, thanks to your support, all will be ready when the IAE 2950 finally opens its gates this Friday!

Now, let’s see what’s going on this week:

On Tuesday, the Narrative Team treats us to Drifters Part Three, the follow-up to a Serialized Fiction episode that you can catch up on here.

On Wednesday, you can look forward to the Intergalactic Aerospace Expo (IAE) Free Fly Schedule Comm-Link, which will provide you with everything you need to make this year’s IAE the biggest aerospace event in the galaxy.

On Thursday, Inside Star Citizen takes a look at IAE’s latest home on microTech and details one of the event’s exclusive announcements…

This Friday won’t bring the week to a close as it kicks off our biggest in-game event of the year with the Intergalactic Aerospace Expo (IAE) 2950! You’ll also see a Roadmap Update and Roundup, an update to the Subscriber Vault, and the weekly RSI Newsletter delivered to your inbox. Last but not least, this Friday, we welcome a new episode of Star Citizen Live to our Star Citizen Twitch channel at 9am Pacific. This week, we’ll host a Q&A with members of Star Citizen’s talented AI Team.

On Saturday, Aegis Dynamics takes over the stage at IAE 2950.

Then on Sunday, we welcome Anvil Aerospace to the IAE show floor.

With this, have a great week, and I’ll see you at the Tobin Expo Center!

Weekly Wisdom: Whitley’s Guide

Whether you’re perusing one of the extravagant ship showrooms in Prime or bargaining in the back room of a secondhand dealer in Hadrian, there’s one thing that is almost universal no matter where you’re shopping in the Empire — Whitley’s Guide.

Considered by many to be the ultimate source of impartial and accurate vehicle, weapon, and component information, it's often the first stop many make when trying to decide if a particular item is right for them. With the guide’s ratings near ubiquitous today, it can be surprising to remember that it was less than a hundred years ago that Sal Whitley first started publishing his guide.

Become a gearhead and learn all about the most-trusted guidance of the galaxy for all things ship in the Whitley's Guide Portfolio.

Community MVP: November 16, 2020

We're constantly amazed at the contributions made by the Star Citizen community. Whether it's fan art, a cinematic, YouTube guide, or even a 3D print of your favorite ship, we love it all! Every week, we select one piece of content submitted to the Community Hub and highlight it here. The highlighted content creator will be awarded an MVP badge on Spectrum and be immortalized in our MVP section of the Hub.

Don't forget to submit your content to our Community Hub for the chance to see it here!

Mercury Star Runner | Cinematic Shots by ninjedy

Ninjedy knows what everyone wants to see and thus earns this week’s MVP title.
Skillfully staged, you can experience Crusader Industries’ first ship even before it’s ready for extensive testing at the IAE 2950.

Check out the full video on the Community Hub.
