We’re all wondering which MISC ship is used for the leading image in the $57-$58 Million “Letter from the Chairman”…

Seems pretty clear to me that it is in fact a Starfarer Corridor, don’t you think? Here’s hoping we get to see more of the Starfarer soon.

We Star Citizens know how to break things!

And… Star Citizen fans seem to have gone and broken things again for CIG.

Somewhere between 1:30p and 1:40p CST, robertsspaceindustries.com resolved to what you see above. This could mean emergency maintenance for one reason or another, a DDOS, OR …it could mean we’ve done it again. The Star Citizen fans probably had something to do with this, especially given the DFM anxiety levels from a large number of the member base. Earlier today XMPP general chat had reached over 800 members in the room with many of them talking rigorously about the DFM. Check back for updates.

UPDATE (1:46p CST): The site is now back up but no word on what caused the outage.
