Manifesto

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide the highest quality experience to our members and affiliates with a structured, team oriented, fun environment. This is accomplished by weekly operations focused on training or specific activity within Star Citizen. The Four Aces Outfit is committed to maintaining excellence, professionalism and integrity in all organizational aspects from operations, member relations, diplomacy and business conduct. Our core objective is the development of a tight knit community inspires new leaders and members to participate for years to come.

Within Star Citizen, our organization values fall within the realm of chaotic neutral. We value our freedom and independence and have no wish to impede on other individuals pursuit of happiness within the ‘Verse so long as it does not impede upon our ventures or objectives.

Goal

The first objective will be to raise the 4ACE Expeditionary Fleet with our Kraken, Idris and multiple Hammerheads forming the core. This Expeditionary Fleet will fly to the edges of UEE controlled space and establish a base of operations with the assistance of the fleet Pioneer. This 4ACE base located on the frontier of space and UEE control will act as a “last stop” and defensive buffer from the murky unknown for allies and friendly players. Additionally, it will be our safe harbor taking advantage of limited UEE support while maintaining close striking distance against the Vanduul. Upon completion, organization divisions will begin conducting operations within their scope of expertise.

These divisions are:

Leadership Division Focus:

  • Operation Development
  • Training and Strategy
  • Alliance Support
  • Diplomacy

Mercantile Division Focus:

  • Trade and Sales
  • Cargo Transport
  • Mining and Transport
  • Legal Business Dealings

Battle Division Focus:

  • Territory and Base Defense
  • Escort and Ground Security
  • War Support (Alliances, Mercenary)
  • Bounty Hunting

Acquisitions Division Focus:

  • Privateering for UEE
  • Technology Salvage and Sales
  • Goods Smuggling
  • Illegal Business Dealings

Discovery Division Focus:

  • Route Reconaissance and Cartography
  • Extraterrestrial Diplomacy
  • Mineral Discovery
  • Science, Research and Development

Individuals may select a primary and secondary division to expand their palate should they choose. An example of how these Divisions function together for the overall success of the organization is as follows: Discovery Division members recon a large Vanduul fleet based abroad and provide the coordinates for a good staging area. Leadership Division forms a tentative plan and releases an OPORD. Battle and Acquisition Divisions move to the staging area, Battle moves forward and defeats Vanduul enemies. After securing the area, Acquisitions moves forward and salvages the Vanduul’s advanced technology. Battle and Acquisitions Divisions move back to home base. Mercantile Division takes the salvaged technology, minerals and components and ships to buyers closer to inner space with Battle Division escort.
