This Week in Star Citizen
November 30, 2020

Happy Monday, everyone!

What a week! The past few days have been all about the 2950 Intergalactic Aerospace Expo, and the Tobin Convention Center saw thousands of visitors marvel at the many ships and vehicles up close every single day.

However, the show is far away from over as the community’s champions conquered the floor. The Drake Cutlass Black, Aegis Eclipse, Anvil Valkyrie, and the ultimate winner of this year’s Ship Showdown, the Anvil Carrack are on display, all dressed for the occasion in their brand new Best in Show liveries. Check out the IAE 2950 FAQ to find out how to secure these exclusive paints for yourself!

Also, don’t forget to check out more than 100 ships during our ongoing Free Fly, and take your chances on winning your very own Anvil Valkyrie by participating in our IAE 2950 Screenshot Contest Finale.

Already cozied in the all-new Nomad from Consolidated Outland during your quantum travel to microTech? Then pass the travel-time and enjoy Star Citizen: The Reunion – Part I, featuring the latest vessel from Crusader Industries, the Mercury Star Runner.

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

On Tuesday, the Narrative Team will introduce Hedeby Gunworks in a Lore Post and explains how this gun manufacturer brings antique weapons and classic smithing techniques back to the year 2950.

Wednesday will be the last day of IAE 2950, and thus your last chance to get your hands on this year’s special IAE offers. Similar to previous years, due to the Expo we won’t have a monthly report for November, but we’ll include all of the goodness the developers have been up to into the December monthly report.

On Thursday, Inside Star Citizen takes a closer look at the Perseus and the upcoming Tractor Beam attachment.

Star Citizen Live will come back to us on Twitch this Friday, at 8am Pacific / 16:00 UTC. Joining us this week will be Vehicle Director John Crewe and Vehicle Art Director Ben Curtis, for a special Post-IAE-All-Ships Q&A. Last but not least, you’ll catch our weekly Roadmap update and Roundup, an update to the Subscriber Vault, and the weekly RSI Newsletter delivered to your inbox.

That’s it for this week’s update. I’m heading to the IAE and maybe I’ll see you there! Until then!

Weekly Wisdom: IAE 2950 Free Fly Freedom

The IAE 2950 might end on December 2, but the best days for space flight enthusiasts are the current ones. To celebrate this year's IAE with a grand finale, you now have the freedom to rent over 100 ships in the Tobin Convention Center, New Babbage on microTech, for free.

Head to the subfloor right below the four Best in Show Ships and check out the Traveler Rentals Terminals and get your hands on some fancy ships before IAE finally closes its doors.

GRIM_SJ released the Kraken and showed us the power and versatility of Drake’s mighty fleet.

So if you still ask yourself why a Space Trucker should pay some fellow friends for their security service, check out what pirates might send after you!
