    The rebel borg became the “cooperative” per the game Star Trek Online, but had no name in TNG.

    Wonderful show everyone.

    Good job on covering the new of the verse, as for the cyclone, im just waiting for a more military ground transport, like ground vehicle from Aliens.

    As someone who hasn’t yet backed Star Citizen, I really appreciate and look forward to your coverage of SC Dev News every week.

    I’m not concerned with the Tencent purchase of the Frontier shares. Time will surely tell, but it seems like a simple way to enter the Chinese market and grab some extra cash at the same time. Also Senior Community Manager Ed Lewis said shortly after the announcement that:
    “David still owns the majority of the company. The direction and operation of the business remains EXACTLY the same.”

    Keep being awesome.

    Hey guys long time listener first-time caller Memphis about Elite dangerous and kind of short of Star Citizen. As far as Frontier selling shares to a Chinese company I think you’re overlooking it very obvious situation. And that’s going to be their ability to go in and change the game according to the Chinese censorship laws without losing their player base in that Country. I would almost bet money that you will never see a Chinese player on the western servers. As far as Star Citizen goes it’s a known fact I’ve been a backer for a very long long time but I’m starting to wonder if Star Citizen is the new DayZ and will be stuck in Forever development. It’s well-known that Chris Roberts is a perfectionist but sometimes I wonder if he’s over-reaching and is more addicted to being a rockstar then getting a completed game out because once the games out he no longer has a celebrity that he’s getting right now. So I guess what I’m saying is I wonder if Chris Roberts ego is getting in the way of the game?

      Hopefully that’s what Erin Roberts will prevent.
