(Citizen Star News/Crusty Collins) - 2014-06-25 - They are 700+ members strong, they probably have the biggest combined cargo tonnage in the 'verse and they are build on a 'we get the job done' claim.

We are talking about the haulers of The Convoy™, one of the bigger organizations in Star Citizen, which has already gained quite some renown.


They became known collectively as ‘The Convoy™’, owing to the spectacle that is a one hundred strong fleet of Starfarers strung bow to stern & skid to skid as far as a Drake Radar suite can see.

(Citizen Star News) - 2014-05-01 - The First Order aims at making the 'Verse a better place for all, not just its members. This would make it fairly fairly unique, or at least unusual, among organizations. The Order is sworn to follow a doctrine of peace and prosperity for all-kind. Within its doctrine, they say they survive so that they may protect those weaker among us that need guidance.

Its founding organizational documents allude to a great history harkening back through ancient times and struggles of empires long fallen. What impact they can have on today's United Empire of Earth remains to be seen.

The Citizen Star recently got a chance to talk to founders MarsMike and Harrison McCoy to find out more about this up and coming organization.

Citizen Star News (CSN): What inspired you to found the First Order?

MarsMike - It was a combination of factors.  One of the factors was the amazingly compelling level of quality I saw being put into the game at an early stage.  I was a avid supporter of Freelancer and could only imagine what it could have been if it would have stayed Digital Anvil till release.  I think that the beauty of Star Citizen is that it has everything that Chris Roberts stands for and all the passion from people who have worked along side him for decades.  You know when you see and dream team and something special is about to happen.  I wanted to be part of that history as a Gamer, Storyteller, Scholar.

Citizen Star News - 2014-03-11 - Browncoats, the seemingly near omnipresent group of libertarian bent firefly fans that exist in many guises in all corners of space these days, are indeed here in the Star Citizen 'Verse. As of this writing, they number 431 players strong, aiming to misbehave or be big damn heroes as the mood strikes them. That places them as the ninth largest organization in Star Citizen at this time.

So here’s how it is: Find a ship, find a crew, find a job, keep on flying. We may not be carrying the most legal of cargo, but it’s honest work and we don’t hurt other folk doing it. Just look for us on the raggedy edge.


CSN: What made you found Citizen Star News?

(Citizen Star News) - 2014-02-09 - Profiling ourselves! Very meta.

The in game organization Citizen Star/NEWS has been founded to create an in game presence for this site's staff. The Citizen Star is a news reporting and media syndication conglomerate. We intend to conduct interviews, follow up on in-game events, creating articles that will be authored in an in-character perspective (tagged In-Verse). The plan is that there will be an additional website dedicated solely to in verse articles. We invite people to join that want to play journalists, media producers and related characters. Org discussion thread is here.
