This Week in Star Citizen
June 7, 2021

Happy Monday, everyone!

With our Free Fly and Invictus Launch Week 2951 wrapped up, we want to extend a huge thank you to all pilots who made the ‘verse a welcoming place for new citizens that gave Star Citizen a go for the first time during the event. As mentioned on Spectrum, everyone who attended the Invictus Launch Week will receive the exclusive leather jacket that commemorates the event and is the perfect way to relive Invictus Launch Week all year-round. We’ll start the distribution on June 10!

As June is Pride Month, we warmly invite each of you to celebrate Pride all month long by showing us your colors! Take part in our Show Us Your Colors Celebration for a chance to secure one out of TEN Drake Cutlass Reds for free!

Please also join us in congratulating the winners of the microTech Metroloop Race 2951 and all the participants that showed their courage and skill. Watch the top attempts on Spectrum!

Last week, our teams around the globe also shared what they were up to in May in the latest Star Citizen PU Monthly Report. Great progress was made on important features for Alpha 3.14 and beyond, from the Orison landing zone to the Pyro and Nyx systems.

Last, and most certainly not least, we’ll be kicking off our Alien Week celebrations on June 11, celebrating the historic First Contact on June 12, 2438, the day that Humanity and the Banu race first met.

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

On Tuesday, the Narrative Team continue “A Gift for Baba.” Read up on Part 1 and 2 before you dive into the follow-up of the 25th-century children’s tale that inspired the names of Crusader’s moons, Cellin, Daymar, and Yela.

On Wednesday, we post the monthly Squadron 42 report (that was recently sent out via newsletter) as a Comm-Link.

Thursday brings a new episode of Inside Star Citizen, our weekly behind-the-scenes series providing you with the latest updates on the development of the ‘verse. Our Alien Cultures Primer will be the perfect introduction to the homeworlds and cultures of the Banu, Xi’an, Tevarin and Vanduul.

On Friday, you’ll see an update to the Subscriber Vault and the weekly RSI Newsletter delivered to your inbox. Finally, we have a new episode of Star Citizen Live, which will broadcast on our Star Citizen Twitch channel at 11am Pacific/6pm UTC. This week will be a gamedev episode where we’ll be designing a new, fictional alien race within the Star Citizen universe, the perfect preparation for one of our two upcoming Alien Week contests!

Have a great week, everyone and happy #PrideMonth2951! 🏳️‍🌈

80’s Music Video In Star Citizen by Fulguro Geek

A rather sad love story turned into a fantastic music video by Fulguro Geek using great editing and FOIP. There might be lightyears between the two characters featured in the video, but we’re definitely feeling this and can’t stop dancing!

Watch the full video on YouTube.
