Welcome to Citizen’s Journal, Save/Continue’s weekly burst of all things Star Citizen.
From a concise summary of news, through personal opinions and ideas, to gameplay reports of Arena Commander,
anything related to Chris Roberts’ ambitious project can be found here, updated every Sunday (oops?)! Two things you should know about me : One, I’m an absolute sucker for anything even remotely Science-fiction, and Star Citizen is pretty much a dream come true for me. Two, I’m a backer of Star Citizen (you can find me here.).
With all the military one-seaters having been available for test flight last week, I took out the Anvil Aerospace Gladiator and the Aegis Dynamics Gladius for a spin against some Vanduul. The other ships available were the hornet variants. Check out the videos below:

May Monthly Report
Here’s the monthly detailed overview of what the various CIG studios were up to. Check it out!
In this week’s 10 for the X, we sit down with writers William Weissbaum and Adam Wieser. They answer 10 community questions about lore and certain game mechanics.
Having the political climate of the galaxy be open to player influence would be an amazing addition to the game, and very well fitting with the current vision of Star Citizen. While the writers mention there being elections in which players can vote, how about allowing players to run for important governmental positions. If certain players gain a high-ranking position in the government, they could influence the economy and diplomacy of the PU, changing taxes or starting wars, which would open up new mission opportunities for the others. How about adding the opportunity to start a rebellion to overthrow a player who becomes ruler? A non-scripted civil war sounds awesome,and while all of this would be wonderful, let’s face it, the internet is the internet, and a few less than civilized fellows would certainly try and ruin such events. Oh well, one can dream.
In this week’s Meet the Devs, we sit down with Ricky Jutley, Project Manager at Foundry 42.
Returning from last week’s 10 for the X, Rick gives premium career advice.
Mark returns in episode 3 of Bugsmashers.
He weaves his magic so that upon interacting with an airlock, you actually get into your ship.
In episode 47 of Around the Verse, we see what the Starfarer might have been.
We also get some more info on Star Marine, and the sneak peek shows off… body scans?
This week’s news update comes in the form of a KAIZEN transmission, the go-to economics programme. The transmission discusses a lawsuit filed against a major corporation regarding the death of an employee. Check it out here.
