  1. Would you have preferred it to exclusively sign up for Either the Federation or the Empire? By the time our next episode is released, the event will be over, so what did you think and what did you think they could do to improve on?


  1. Were were asked if there is going to be a fourth season of Escape Velocity. Chris has confirmed that it is in development but there’s nothing to say just yet.


  1. Next month Operation Ida is holding it’s 2nd Annual HAULiday Haul which commemorates the 2 year of the initial attacks by Thargoids in 3303 & the 2nd Thargoid/Human War as well as our origin as a group. We’ll be fundraising for the cancer Research Institute and holding events during the 4 weeks of the Hauliday Haul including a one day station repair, convoys, races etc. last years Haul was a lot of fun and we were able to get the word out regarding what we do to the community, engage people in various activities and even raised over $1100 as well.
