Will Weissbaum ventures into Banu space to explore Gliese. This resource-rich system is home to a massive flotilla and a fair amount of mystery around why the Banu refuse to set foot on its most promising planet.

Remember that you can always explore the Star Citizen Universe yourself in our web-based Ark Star Map.

TO: DIR. THOMAS CARMODY
CC: AD JOSH SHAW, DEP. AD EMMA THORNE
FROM: SC STEFANO CALLIER
SUBJECT: XI’AN MEETING


Director Carmody,

To follow up on our earlier discussion, I just left the meeting with the Xi’an envoys and to say they’re not happy would be a gross understatement. They presented documentation collating evidence of ongoing, weekly attacks targeting Xi’an shipments traveling through Nyx. I’ve attached their document for your records. My staff is currently cross referencing their list against ours to ensure there are no discrepancies.

Thankfully, the Xi’an envoys have agreed not to file an official diplomatic complaint for now, but they made it abundantly clear that they wouldn’t hesitate to do so if we didn’t stop what’s going on. I reiterated that Nyx isn’t under our jurisdiction but to them, it makes no difference if the system is ‘recognized’ by the UEE or not. They consider Nyx to be Human-controlled space which, according to their interpretation of HuXa, means that it’s our responsibility to guarantee the safe passage of Xi’an cargo ships.

I assured them that we’ve been implementing policies from Tohil that could help stop these attacks, like increased patrols near the jump into Nyx and updated Advocacy signage at refueling stops to advise Xi’an haulers to be wary of attacks. We’re doing everything we can short of entering the system to take care of the problems ourselves.

Please advise if you believe there are any further actions my team and I can do to keep this issue from turning into a real diplomatic issue.

Sincerely,

Stefano Callier
Section Chief
Advocacy — Tohil System

Greetings Citizens



Greetings Citizens,

Members from the Support and Community teams have convened at Turbulent’s office in Montreal for our Player Relations summit. We’ll be discussing the details of our website revamp, the ship matrix, Spectrum, and more!

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

Today we released a brand new episode of Citizens of the Stars. In this episode, Citizen Spotlight explores how GrayHeadedGamer’s interest in cargo hauling got him started as a content creator. Then Sean Tracy talks FOIP and more during his round of Quantum Questions.

On Tuesday, the Lore Team publishes another detailed weekly Lore Post of an in-fiction story about the life of citizens in the ‘Verse.

Wednesday brings us another edition of Loremakers where we explore the mysteries of a planetary system in the Star Citizen universe.

On Thursday, Around the Verse returns with the latest from the Star Citizen Development team. Also, Eric Keiron Davis gives us an update on our Burndown list as we approach the 3.0 Evocati release.

To wrap up the week, join Jared Huckaby and Ben Lesnick for Happy Hour: Museum where Ben takes us on a trip down memory lane to explore a game from Chris Roberts’ past.

That’s all for this week, we’ll see you in the ‘Verse!

Around the Verse + Burndown...
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.

This week, the Citizen Spotlight explores how GrayHeadedGamer’s interest in cargo hauling got him started as a content creator. Then Sean Tracy talks FOIP and more during his round of 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.

CitizenCon 2947: Exploring New Worlds


Greetings Citizens!

C&D Events is proud to announce the theme for the 2947 CitizenCon: Exploring New Worlds. With help from our sponsors like Consolidated Outlands, Aegis Dynamics, the UEE Diplomatic Corps, Compass Magazine, and Electronic Access, this year’s event will discuss exploring beyond the known frontier and showcase emergent technology, security protocols and even helpful social skills when venturing into the great unknown. Arguably the biggest event of its kind, CitizenCon brings together speakers, exhibitors and vendors to celebrate the people of the UEE.

Doors to the event will open at 12 PM UTC so there’s plenty of time for you to experience and explore everything that’s planned. The main auditorium will host presentations while numerous booths will focus on exploration and other topics that you won’t want to miss. Expect to hear more about these details closer to the event.

The whole event will be streamed from the Capitol Theater via Twitch and a full itinerary of the day’s speakers will be available soon.

You can find the previous announcement regarding CitizenCon 2947, complete with location information and FAQ here.
