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. With your help, series three was an incredible success and I'd like to invite you to take part in the creation of series four - where the story we started together comes to a dramatic conclusion.
