The maverick ship manufacturer has done it again.

“Humanity’s frontier isn’t just some place one world over. It’s a dream. It’s an idea waiting to be had. It’s what motivates us to push harder and farther. It’s the spirit built into the very heart of the Pioneer.” – Silas Koerner

Ever since the unveiling of the quantum drive, Humanity has been on an upward trajectory of innovation and exploration. Advances in technology have allowed more and more people to sail the stars, to discover previously unknown solar systems, to harvest resources from celestial bodies.

Now Consolidated Outland offers another advance in Humanity’s technological evolution. Introducing the first mobile construction yard, the Pioneer opens up exciting opportunities for planetary settlement by allowing you to create your own modular structures.

So you can bring civilization to the wild.

View the Pioneer


Featuring the same cutting edge production technology found in Consolidated Outland’s own shipyards, the Pioneer houses a fully-functioning production line within its hull capable of constructing an outpost to your specifications. The innovation doesn’t stop there though. Once you arrive planetside and deploy your structures, the Pioneer can continue to build additional modules to turn your outpost into a settlement.

Whether you’re seeking to colonize a new world on the fringe of known space, or you’re looking to stake a claim and make your mark here in the Empire, the Pioneer has been designed to help you make even the harshest terrain feel like home.

about the concept sale

The Pioneer is being offered for the first time as a limited concept sale. This means that the ship design meets our specifications, but it is not yet ready to display in your Hangar or to fight in Star Citizen. The sale includes Lifetime Insurance on the ship hull and a pair of decorative items for your Hangar. A future patch will add a Pioneer poster and then once the in-game model is finished you will also be given an in-game Pioneer mini ship model! In the future, the ship price will increase and the offer will not include Lifetime Insurance or these extras.

If you are interested in adding one to your fleet, a limited number of War Bond Pioneer hulls (plus outpost construction materials and UEE Claim licenses) are available for purchase during this sale. The total number of Pioneers available is being limited to adhere with the current design for player-run outposts. Pioneers will be available in the pledge store until Monday, November 6, 2017 (or while supplies last.) You can also view a detailed schematic of the Pioneer in the Holo Viewer in the Tech Overview of the ship page, and be sure to enjoy the special CitizenCon brochure featuring the Pioneer.

As with every Concept Sale, we will also be doing a Q&A post. We are also streaming a live presentation with the Pioneer’s designers during CitizenCon 2947, which will be available for review after the event. If you have additional questions, there will be a forum thread on Spectrum to take your questions. Make sure to vote for the questions you most want to see answered and we will be posting the dev’s responses next week. Look for the Comm-Link Schedule next week to find out when that post will go up.

Remember: we are offering this pledge ship to help fund Star Citizen’s development. The funding generated by sales such as these are what allow us to include deeper features in the Star Citizen world. Concept ships will be available for in-game credits in the final universe, and they are not required to start the game.

Additionally, please note that the Pioneer will be entering the ship pipeline now and may be released after other concept ships have been completed. All decorative ‘flair’ items will also be available to acquire in the finished game world. The goal is to make additional ships available that give players a different experience rather than any particular advantage.

pledge options


Consolidated Outland is pleased to announce that the UEE Planetary Development Bureau has released a number of Claim Licenses for commercial or private construction. Whether you’re looking to settle on a distant moon or a terraformed planet, these claims allow you to officially own a piece of the UEE and enjoy its protection. Each Pioneer will include a single Claim, changing the question of whether you should build to where you should build.

For over eighty years, the Planetary Development Bureau has been working with planetary authorities to not only oversee the zoning of building plots, but to mediate and supervise the sale of land claims for commercial and private use.

Certain restrictions apply.
