Company History

From Corel to Chronos and almost everywhere in between, Casaba Outlet has become ubiquitous across the UEE. The concept behind the store is far from new. It sells designer-style fashion at affordable prices, yet Casaba succeeded where many had failed thanks mainly to the business savvy and entrepreneurial drive embodied by the company’s founding partners, siblings Jean and Joel Polanco.

Freelancer Free Spirits

Jean Polanco claims to have been born in a jump point. At least that’s the excuse she gave to justify her restless spirit. Still, her claim can’t be disproven. Jean’s birth certificate states she was born in an unspecified part of space in 2811, as her parents traveled from Ferron to Idris in search of work. For the next five years, Jean’s childhood
home was her family’s Freelancer, as her parents crisscrossed the universe as independent cargo haulers.

Joel was born in 2816 while the family was in the Goss System. Their mother, Tierney, insisted on Joel’s birth happening there, as she believed the cosmic properties of the system’s binary star would bless him in life. Joel was described as a shy yet curious child, who constantly questioned why the family was always on the move. So Tierney told him they were searching for a magical city called Casaba: a place of peace and tranquility that was filled with wonders for all.

The family continued to live out of their Freelancer, barely subsisting on odd jobs just long enough to get them to the next system. The extensive traveling excited Jean, who became fascinated with the subtle cultural differences between planets. While the rest of the family visited historical sites or natural wonders, Jean spent her days in dingy alleys, exploring bazaars and garment districts.

One day, Joel...

Galactic Guide: Oberon System
Galactic Guide: Oberon System


FOOLS RUSH IN

From its very first days, Oberon has always been a system that beckoned those seeking wealth and fortune, only to time and again leave them destitute. As the Tarsus quantum drive mod became more readily available at the turn of the 23rd century, new exploration companies were formed, eager to reap the benefits from discovering a system. The “Golden Age of Expansion” was officially underway with hundreds of ships scouring known space, hoping to push the boundaries of Humanity even farther. While the media liked to create the romantic image of the explorer’s life, for every success story like NavJumper Antoine Lebec, there were dozens more who lost everything, including their lives, hunting for new jump points. The ship that discovered the first jump point to Oberon was one such tragedy despite their success in locating a new system.

The crew of the Lindy had been exploring the outreaches of Nul since 2348 and their reserve of funds had nearly run dry, when in 2356 their scanners picked up a faint anomaly that would reveal itself to be a jump point. They successfully traversed through interspace and found on the other side a new system anchored by a neutron star. Small and dense, it turned out to have twice the mass of most G-type main sequence stars despite having a solar radius that is just a fraction of the size. Formerly a binary star system, approximately 1.4 billion years ago the main star went supernova, gravitationally collapsing and stripping the outer layers of its companion. What was left orbiting in the wake of that chaotic event was the core of the former partner white dwarf star, now known as Oberon I, and six other planets that had formed out of the debris of whatever planets had originally been in the system before.

What is Two-Step Authentication?

[​IMG]

With the introduction of Two-Step Authentication Security for Star Citizen, you can now protect your account with an additional level of security.

As a standard security measure, your accounts are protected by a username and password. However, against a determined security breach attempt, this might not always be enough to keep your account safe. This is where two-step authentication comes in.

When you have two-step authentication enabled, you will sign in with your username and password, then you will be required to enter a uniquely generated code, which is sent to your email address or through our new authenticator app (available on Android and iPhone). So even if your username/password is compromised, a unique access code will also be required to enter your account.

On top being able to get your randomly generated access codes from the Star Citizen Authenticator, users are also able to use, Google Authenticator, Authy, Microsoft Authenticator and any other TOTP/HOTP-based applications.

Crisis Fatigue

Start Transmission

Howdy, haulers! Thanks for settling in for another installment of Clean Shot. My name’s Craig Burton and today’s show is almost over capacity — a Hull-D sized load of information coming your way! Ready to do this, Kari Ann?

That’s what I like to see, a big thumbs up! Our illustrious associate producer Kari Ann is calling the shots today while Skinny’s off getting some much needed R&R. Honestly, Skinny didn’t even want to take a vacation. New components make him weak in the knees, so I told him someone needed to run a new top-of-the-line power plant from Lightning Power Ltd. through the wringer and give me a review. Don’t let Skinny know, but after years of working with him, I think I finally discovered a way to get him to take some vacation — convince him it’s work.

Enough about Skinny. Let’s get this show going with a special TroubleZone.

We’ll start in Indra. This Xi’An system sees more than its fair share of Human haulers looking to trade with the Xi’An and Banu there. Well, over the past few months, an organized operation has been targeting Humans traveling through the system. Since the offenses occurred in Xi’An space, it’s hard to confirm the specific details, but from what I’ve heard, it sounds like a pretty straightforward grab job.

Pilots are lured to a location by a distress beacon and then swarmed by ships telling them to dump their cargo or come under attack. Those who listen and give up their goods without much of a fuss are free to go, their ships a bit lighter but their lives still intact.

There are no exact numbers on how often this has happened, but a UEE envoy to Indra has begun negotiating with the Xi’An council there to bring Human ships under the protection of authorized, independent Xi’An forces operating in the system. But take that for what it...

July Subscriber Flair!

Greetings Subscribers!

This month’s Subscriber Flair is the Ophelia Vine! The Space Plant Collection features exotic plants found throughout the galaxy, from strange and unusual specimen to alien specifies or commonly found greeneries. This glowing vine is the fourth item in our Space Plant series. Similar to how the plant’s fictional namesake drowned in the ancient Earth play Hamlet, the bioluminescent Ophelia vine is submerged regularly by the tide that rises over the brackish sands it grows upon. The plants bright radiance is owing to the high quantity of luciferin it naturally absorbs from the heavy bacteria content found in its homemoon’s oceans.

If you’re an active subscriber, the flair will be attributed to your account today. If you subscribe over the weekend, the plant will be attributed to your account on Tuesday July 19th! The space plant will appear in the game when Alpha 2.5 goes live. More information about subscriptions can be found here!
