This Week in Star Citizen
November 23, 2020

Happy Monday, everyone!

Today already marks Day 4 of the 2950 Intergalactic Aerospace Exposition! The doors of the Tobin Convention Center in New Babbage, microTech, opened last Friday and have since welcomed thousands of pilots from around the ‘verse. If you haven’t visited the expo yet, you should check it out now to get a look at the hottest vehicles from the top manufacturers in the ‘verse AND fly over 100 ships for free. The Free Fly will continue until the end of IAE (you can check out the schedule here), so now’s the time to take that ship you’ve been eyeing up out for a spin!

There surely is something for everyone, with Jax McCleary bringing you new video updates throughout the expo and we’re hosting a screenshot contest that offers you the chance to win a fantastic ship every day.

With so much going on in the ‘verse, don’t miss the Alpha 3.11 Postmortem we published last week, where the senior developers themselves detail what was delivered in our latest patch and share their thoughts on how it went.

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

On Tuesday, the Narrative Team will publish “Clean Shot: IAE 2950”, a piece in which Craig Burton chats with an IAE official about the expo on microTech and the event’s future.

On Wednesday, we’ll welcome a new episode of Inside Star Citizen on our YouTube channel. Wait, isn’t ISC usually released on Thursdays? You’re absolutely right, but due to Thanksgiving being celebrated on the 26th, we’ll bring out this episode a day earlier to let the team activate feast mode. You can look forward to a corny episode featuring the Mercury Star Runner and a Sprint Report!

And finally, on Friday, you’ll see an update to the Subscriber Vault and the RSI Newsletter will wait for you in your inbox. There’s no Roadmap Update or Star Citizen Live this week, as everyone will be touring the halls of the IAE (while chewing on those last pieces of Thanksgiving turkey). Subscribers can also look forward to the November issue of Jump Point.

One more thing: We are happy to announce that the Best in Show days starting on November 29th also marks the start of the grand finale of the IAE with ALL flyable ships being rentable from the ship terminals in game until the end of the expo on December 2nd!

With this, have a great week, and we’ll see you at the expo hall!

MSR and Area18 Phtoshoot session by Caliber1000

More Star Runner goodness this week! Caliber1000 went for a stroll around the buildings of Area18 and captured the city’s lights with stunning effect.
Remember, Crusader Industries is taking over the Tobin Expo Center on microTech today, so be sure to visit them and test-fly this beauty of a ship yourself!
