Community Corner

  1. player group threatens a commander via his work after he claims their system in BGS
    1. TLDR version a commander has been in a bgs war with a player group for about 1.5 months and has successfully reduced that faction’s influence. The Faction found out who the cmdr was in real life, and have contacted his work about “harassment and extortion” (he told them he’d leave their system if they gave him 1bn in game credits)
  2. Orange Phoenix does a Lego Thargoid
  3. Alec Turner and his Advent calendar video thread –
  4. Cmdr Scorbious really put update 9 through it paces with loads of commanders on foot in the same place :-
  5. Cmdr Beatjude shows off how she did Cmdr Joebug’s t6
  6. GraphicGB on the forums has put a video up, showing how to raid Megaships, now that the hatchbreakers are working again. This applies to both Horizons and Odyssey and it means one of the most tense missions, rescuing people from a crippled Megaship which is under thargoid attack, is available again.

Mostly Clueless

The Bio Trader

If you have curiosity about the thargoids , come to Pleiades Nebula. It’s safe! If you have never been hyperdicted, and wanna experience it! just come to the nebula , once hyperdicted, don’t do anything , just stand still , speed to zero , pull your composition scanner and you can even scan them! wait until he reaches you to about 500m , they aint gonna start killing you , it’s all bait and not true! just don’t take too many selfies else they will start to get red hot , its 100% safe


  1. Dockers is doing a Charity Christmas Special
    1. I know it’s only September and good taste dictates that Christmas should never be mentioned until long after Halloween, but in the world of entertainment Christmas has to be prepared well in advance. When you think about preparing for Christmas, you’re probably thinking about the dinner. Will it be turkey? Beef? How about an enormous cock?

      Yes, the Dockers are coming back this year with a Christmas special and they have set up a kickstarter on justgiving. Yes that’s right, a kickstarter on Just Giving. I don’t think they quite understand that all the money will be going to charity.

      If you haven’t heard of it before Dockers is a mockumentary podcast about the ordinary folk of the Galaxy from the lowly toilet attendants to famous wildlife documentary makers. It’s been going for a few years and usually does a live show at Lavecon, late at night, well after the watershed because it’s very, very naughty

      If they meet their target they will put on the Christmas show, (though to be honest they will put it on regardless.) They have some rewards in their charity kickstarter. If you ever fancied being the subject of a documentary  there are a few options to get your name in the show. Some of them are pretty unsavory.
1£5.00Listen to the Christmas special in the comfort of your own home for no additional cost!
2£10.00Listen to the Christmas special in the comfort of your own home for a small additional cost!
3£20.00Have your name read out by the Narrator at the end of the show with the credits.
4£30.00Listen to the Christmas special in the comfort of your own home for a substantial additional cost!
5£40.00A lifetime supply of Gnosis Avian Cheese**While stocks last (10 available). Only one block per lifetime, believe me that is enough. No refunds. First come first serve. After ten blocks are allocated reward will be downgraded to tier 3
6£50.00A sketch featuring you written and performed by members of the cast of dockers.* To be clear when we say members we don’t mean penises. The segment will be up to 5 minutes long.
7£200.00A character of our choice will perform a sex act on you during the show**This will be a dramatisation not an actual act you sicko
8£500.00A character of our choice will perform an enjoyable sex act on you during the show**This will be a dramatisation not an actual act you sicko. Enjoyment is not guaranteed.
9£1000.00We will have your ears surgically removed so that you never have to listen to the show again.*Need I tell you that this is satire and not a cure for body dysmorphia?
10£10,000.00The episode will be set in the Star Citizen Universe
11£11,000,000Are you a pharma-bro? We will record a 40 minute episode exclusively for you. Nobody else will be able to listen to it unless you let them.
