fd3cf Star Citizen StarMarine8 This Week in Star Citizen

Hey Citizens!

What an exciting weekend it has been! Have you gotten a chance to fly the Drake Buccaneer yet? Well, last Friday we released Star Citizen Alpha 2.6.2 to the LIVE server and have spent much of the weekend reading all of the great feedback on all that 2.6.2 has to offer.

Let’s see what is going on this week:

Today’s Citizens of the Stars episode has Ben Lesnick introducing Erris, one of the founders of the popular fansite, Relay. Then, Jared Huckaby puts Vehicle Art Director Nathan Dearsley in the hotseat for this week’s Quantum Questions. What’s this about a ‘Defender concept ship’ in Quantum Questions? Watch to find out.

On Wednesday, our bi-weekly show The Loremaker’s Guide to the Galaxy is back! CIG Archivist Cherie Heiberg travels to the Yulin System in the Banu Protectorate. Discover how tensions between two Banu guilds affect the most popular Sataball arena in this week’s show.

Thursday’s episode of Around the ‘Verse visits our Austin Studio with an update from Jake Ross, and Turbulent’s Benoit Beausejour. Going forward, Turbulent will be joining the Austin, Texas studio updates, so look forward to more Spectrum news in the future.

To end the week, we are hosting Happy Hour Interview, where we kidnap a CIG developer and subject them to questions from backers on our official Twitch channel. Last month’s guests were Sean Tracy and Steve Bender. Joining us this week is a surprise (because we don’t know, yet).
