Announcer: Don’t crawl into that the cryopod just yet. Not when there’s Something Every Tuesday, with your host Esen Landari!

[ Applause ]

Thank you! I’m absolutely thrilled to be here with all of you. Make sure to give it up for SET’s very own talented announcer, Christine.

[ Applause ]

Christine, just to check, were you implying that people out there are debating between putting themselves in to a state of frozen stasis and watching our show?

Announcer: Yup.

Great.

[ Laughter ]

I, for one, am very excited to see what they choose. Hopefully, they stick around because we have a fantastic show coming up. One of my personal favorite comedians, Langer Lewis, will be coming by fresh from his latest tour.

Plus, cleaning expert Daryl Hissup will explain how to transform your hab from funky to fresh. Something that I’m personally dying to know. No matter how hard I try to stay organized, stuff just always starts to pile up everywhere. My place has gotten so bad that I actually had to switch from hiring cleaning crews to contracting search and rescue teams.

[ Chuckle ]

Now, normally I break down all the biggest stories of the week for you, but I’m gonna be honest, there’s only one thing that I’ve been following: this year’s IAE.

[ Cheers ]

For you planet-bound folks out there, I’m talking about the Intergalactic Aerospace Expo, where a few days from now all of the ‘verses biggest and best manufacturers will be coming together to show off their latest and greatest. It does not get better than this for a gearhead like me. Well, maybe if Consolidated Outland announced they were designing a gravlev called the Esen.

[ Laughter ]

Silas, feel free to comm my people.

Besides all the new ships and tech upgrades, the real excitement is that the IAE Board of Directors recently announced that there is not going to be just...

Hello everyone,

On Saturday we reached a major funding milestone, and we want to thank our amazing community who made this possible. In a letter from the chairman, Chris Roberts shares his thoughts on the fantastic journey so far and the exciting future that lies ahead.

No matter if 2018 or 2948: this week people come together to celebrate Thanksgiving. Whether they’re hunkering down with friends or quantum traveling to be with family, Thanksgiving is all about being thankful and celebrating the holiday together with loved ones. It doesn’t matter if it’s a simple Big Benny’s noodle box, a fully dressed space turkey, or enjoying a nice Pips or Radegast with the crew. We asked you to share this wonderful experience and show the ‘verse what you’re thankful for. Participate in not one, but two contests in honor of Thanksgiving and with a bit of luck, become the proud owner of a brand-new Banu Defender, Khartu-Al, or Nox.

And while you’re taking those beautiful screenshots, don’t forget that the countdown to the 2948 Anniversary Special has begun. This Friday kicks off our most epic Free-Fly event to date, and with it our annual November ship promotion. All the flyable ships and every operable vehicle will be at your fingertips! This is your chance to try out the vessel you’ve had an eye on. It’s never been easier, and we’re sure you’ll find a helpful hand within our community should you need it. Find out more about the promotion and take to skies with our...

Letter from the Chairman

Dear Citizens,

Two Hundred Million Dollars.

Wow.

The amount is the highest total for any project in the history of crowdfunding and is beyond anything I could have imagined in my wildest dreams.

While the number is impressive, that is not what sets Star Citizen and Squadron 42 apart.

The true celebration is one of how a community came together to enable a shared dream to come to life. How gamers from all over the world came together to finance one of the biggest and most ambitious projects ever embarked on. There is no publisher. No big conglomerate. This is all grassroots, funded by gamers for gamers.

[​IMG]
To highlight just how global the support is, the person that took us past this milestone, Algared, hails from New South Wales in Australia and has been a backer since 2014. We have backers from 171 countries, from some of the smallest like San Marino or the Maldives to the largest like India and China. We cover the globe, pole to pole from Antarctica to Svalbard and Jan Mayen. Considering there are only 193 countries in the world, that’s an amazing number and shows how universal the appeal of Star Citizen is.

And it’s more than just the funding, it’s been six years of ground breaking open development, where all of you have been actively involved in what we are building.

You have watched us grow from a handful of people to a global staff of over 500, across 5 studios, 4 time zones and 3 countries. Some of the best talent in the industry is working on Star Citizen and Squadron 42, most of who are gamers that are inspired by your passion to push the boundaries of what is possible.

We give you multiple updates every week and have been since the inception of...

Anniversary Promotion & Free Fly Details
Take to the skies!

Citizens,

To celebrate the release of Hurston, Star Citizen’s first explorable planet, and commemorate our anniversary, we’re launching a Free Fly event of unprecedented magnitude.

From Nov 23 through Dec 1 you’ll have the chance to try out every flyable ship and operable vehicle in the game for free. Here’s how it works:

During the promotion, anyone can join Star Citizen’s Persistent Universe for free. You’ll be able to experience Star Citizen first-hand, but to get out there and start exploring, you’re gonna need a ship.

Starting on November 23rd, every day, a different ship manufacturer in the game will make its entire flyable fleet available for a 24-hour test flight period.

There may also be some surprises in store for those of you who make the trek out to Hurston and see what Lorville’s all about, as well as some fun interactive activities here on the website, so stay tuned.

Check out the schedule below to plan your free test flights. Have fun and fly safe!
