In this week’s flight deck we bring you all the headlines from simulated space including the latest news from: Infinity Battlescape, Elite Dangerous, Star Citizen. Next, we’ll get the news from the deep black with Spencer McDunn on Galactic Public Radio. Then Commander KineticImpulser locks on for a discussion of missiles and torpedoes in Nuggets for Nuggets. After that we continue our audio adventure, Guard Frequency Origins, as our pilots continue their acts of grand theft stapler. Finally, we open up the feedback loop and let you join in on the fun.

Lace up your booties, campers, it’s time to head out to the Flight Deck!

    Great work all.

    Keep those ship artists thinking.

    Now when you next walk through a door or gate, have a think of how many types there are before they start feeling the same. Even a Banu door will surely still be recognised as a door?

    Analogy over killed, now go kick down those RP doors!

    Excellent episode team.

    Just how many 1’s can one person roll, im thinking you guys should start keeping track. Worst roller gets 1 karma at the end of every mission.

    Parallel development, for the ship designs. Most of the ships in space sims have already had similar ships made artwise, many times over, throughout the years.

    The probes for exploration would have to pay quite a lot of money to make it worth the time. It’s already not worth the effort to get detailed surface scans of each planet. I make far more credits per hour just popping the advanced discovery scanner and moving on.
