Last week I was at E3 and got to meet many of you also in attendance. Getting to talk with backers face-to-face is probably one of the best perks of my job.
If you’ve haven’t heard, we finally announced our plans for CitizenCon 2017! Join us on October 27th, 2017 at the Capitol Theater in Frankfurt as we celebrate another year with our community and take a look at what the team has been working really hard on the upcoming game content. More information about the event and when tickets go on sale can be found here.
Earlier today, we released a new episode of Citizens of the Stars, our weekly show dedicated to highlighting the amazing creations by our passionate backers. Our special guest is Utho Riley, the community composer creating original works inspired by the Star Citizen universe. Then LA QA Manager Vincent Sinatra is in the hot seat to challenge Brian Chambers, the reigning Quantum Champion.
On Tuesday, the Lore Team takes us down a rich and interesting look at a piece of history in Star Citizen. These posts are integral to building out our worlds and breathe life and history into the Star Citizen universe.
Then on Wednesday, Lead Writer Dave Haddock quantum jumps to the Tyrol System ins our bi-weekly show, “Loremaker’s Guide to the Galaxy!”
On Thursday, Around the Verse returns with an update from Brian Chambers and the Foundry 42 Frankfurt Studio! Take a look into the more technical side of building a universe, where our Frankfurt studio is largely responsible for building the tools to build Star Citizen.
And what better way to wrap up the week with a new ship?! We are incredibly excited to unveil the Concept Sale for the Xi’An Nox! It joins the Dragonfly as a sleek and nimble bike built for high speeds. Having one (or several) in your fleet will definitely give your style points!
Lastly, Subscribers can submit questions related to the tech that goes into creating the detailed characters you will discover in the Star Citizen universe. The Town Hall will be held on June 27th at Noon PDT/7 PM UTC and Sean Tracy, Gaige Hallman, and Omar Aweidah will be on hand to answer your questions!
See you in the ‘Verse!

Community Spotlight: June 19TH, 2017 – Cosplay Citizen
This week’s theme is “Cosplay Citizen.” With the recent announcement of CitizenCon 2017, I decided to take a look back at all the photos players have shared and found some really great cosplay. Don’t forget to submit your content to our Community Hub for a chance at seeing it here!
Advocacy Officer by Sylvok
Sylvok dressed up as a Advocacy Officer Agent for CitizenCon 2015 and turned out really well! Complete with jacket and standard-issue sidearm, Sylvok looks ready for the challenges that all officers in the UEE Advocacy has to deal with!

Pirate by Kinshadow
Kinshadow visisted us last year during CitizenCon and dressed up as his usual pirate self. We especially like the attention to detail on the helmet in which he created a separate “How-to” post for others wishing to make their own helmet (link in the original post below).

Big Benny’s Machine by Dastro
Dastro’s Big Benny’s Machine cosplay was a big hit at our Gamescom Demo last year. I mean, look at Chris’s face! There was lots of photo opportunites and I’d be lying if I said the team wasn’t looking forward to what he will bring this year.
