Help Support Escape Velocity

Hey everybody. When I produced series one and two of Elite: Escape Velocity I was overwhelmed by your reception to the series. Not just as a faithful fan adaptation of a game world you all loved as much as I did, but to the characters, stories, performers and music that made it such a success. Nearly every week I get messages asking for Escape Velocity to come back. And I really want to be able to make it for you and continue the story we all started together.
