Claiming Space: The Race for Land

For over eighty years, the Planetary Development Bureau (PDB) has been working with local 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. This vital agency has become such a commonplace part of our lives that its importance is often overlooked today. Rather than tallying up all of the Bureau’s accomplishments in regulating this important aspect of the Empire’s growth, the best way to demonstrate the agency’s past legacy and current significance is to look back at the turbulent history of what land claims were like before the PDB’s founding.

As Humans first began to spread throughout the Sol system in the early 22nd century, disputes over land claims were common and would frequently escalate into physical altercations. Earth had become severely overcrowded and people were desperate to escape its confines. The disparate nations that governed the planet had begun to work together on solutions, but could not agree on a land use policy. Each was wary of the others trying to gain disproportionate control over the unclaimed territory, and fear over the amassing of political power left Humanity’s expansion largely unregulated. Not only were there multiple incidents of asteroid miners waging sabotage campaigns against their rivals’ outposts, but with the terraformation of Mars underway, speculators were eagerly trying to grab as much of the valuable land as they could. Historian Dr. Kailanni Boden dubbed the era the ‘Red Diaspora,’ “not only because the red planet was the focus of the settlement, but because of the violence commonly associated with the...
Greetings Citizens

Greetings Citizens,

Although a major holiday is later this week in the States, we are still full steam ahead as we continue to make progress towards releasing 3.0 to PTU. Check out the latest development to our Production Schedule.

With that, let’s see what’s going on this week:

In today’s Citizens of the Stars, photographer Jeff Shewmon (Olem Falla) focuses the Citizen Spotlight on stunning portraits he took at Versecon 2017, and then Will Maiden does more than just talk about cargo during Quantum Questions. Catch it here.

On Tuesday at 12PM PST this month’s Subscriber’s Town Hall will be a discussion of Cargo and Shopping mechanics coming online with Alpha 3.0. Join Senior Systems Designer Will Maiden, Lead Gameplay Engineer Chad McKinney and Associate Gameplay Engineer Spencer Johnson as they sit down with Jared Huckaby to answer Subscriber’s questions LIVE on Twitch.

Then later that day, the Lore Team will release their weekly Lore Post with a never before seen look into the Star Citizen Universe. You can find all previously released posts here.

On Wednesday, Bugsmashers is back with Spencer Johnson exterminating a bug in 3.0. Make sure to watch previous episodes of Bugsmashers here

Thursday, due to the U.S. holiday, there will be no featurette but Chris and Sandi will have a special message to everyone and Eric Keiron Davis will give us the latest numbers from “Burndown.”

And Friday...
Welcome to Citizens of the Stars, our new weekly program exclusively about you, the Star Citizen Community. Whether through bug reports on the issue council, feedback on the forums, or the creation of content inspired by the game, Star Citizen is only possible because of the community. Citizens of the Stars not only highlights these contributions, but also puts a dev in the hotseat for a round of Quantum Questions, which addresses some fun facts about the dev and game.

Photographer Jeff Shewmon (Olem Falla) focuses the Citizen Spotlight on stunning portraits he took at Versecon 2017, and then Will Maiden does more than just talk about cargo during Quantum Questions.

Remember, many of the questions used are taken from our Star Citizen Subscribers in this thread here. Don’t forget to add yours for inclusion in future episodes, vote for the ones you want to see answered, and remember to keep them short and concise if you want your best chance of having them answered in under two minutes.

Torral Aggregate Testimony

UEE Congress (397)


2947-11-14 SET

Session AutoScript

Proofed and Admitted – Assistant Archivist Burg (#748392BDF)

2947-11-14_13:04 – Session Resumes

SENATOR TURSON HASKEL (U – Asura – Ferron Sys): This committee is back in session. For the rest of this hearing, I want to focus on Torral Aggregate. This Xi’an-owned company recently won a contract to produce weapons for the UEE Army, and they’re now looking to purchase a series of decommissioned military facilities in the Kiel System to house their manufacturing operation.

Joining us now is Marion Keplinger, senior legal counsel for Torral Aggregate and … Suenath see—

SUNATH OF THE TORRAL: .ē sen S.un’ath se T.or’al. t.ii Nya’t.ōng•’o se kyōhuitō se aoō’nu se T.or’al ue hue SaoHyūm.

SENATOR TURSON HASKEL (U – Asura – Ferron Sys): What’s that?

MARION KEPLINGER: Sunáth introduced herself as a member of the House Torral, and specified that she holds the title of Director of Human Operations.

SENATOR TURSON HASKEL (U – Asura – Ferron Sys): Ok, well, there’s limited time and a lot to cover, so I’m going to skip all further formalities. Real quick though, I noticed that insta-translation services were not provided for Ms. Suenath. I’d assume that’s because she’d prefer you to translate for her?

SUNATH OF THE TORRAL: sya kuai lai. e yao nai pohyan .u pue”.

MARION KEPLINGER: The Director understands us completely. Though I may need to take a few moments to clarify any cultural or political differences for her.

SENATOR TURSON HASKEL (U – Asura – Ferron Sys): And, seemingly, to speak for her too.

MARION KEPLINGER: Technically, I’m speaking on behalf of Torral...
