Virgin Radio will soon drop the beat in the entire solar system when the new fleet of mobile broadcasting ships will be launched. Now you can listen to your favorite radio even when doing your daily raids on some poor colonists from a backwater world or when mining in those asteroid belts at the edge of civilized space.

The three Ender battlecruiser prototypes were commissioned by the Cyberian Software mega-corporation and built on the shipyards at Colony 47. Their main purpose is to protect at all costs the convoys hauling the latest installment of the popular virtual reality game GTA 5-SPACE to the stores across the solar system. The battlecruisers are equipped with a myriad of weapons, torpedo launchers and other offensive systems, all in hopes that they will succede in their mission to end the recent waves of looting by the legions of hardcore gamers who will stop at nothing to get their filthy hands on a copy of the game. It's a crazy world.

The Next Great Starship is a 3D challenge / modding competition series from RSI where groups of up to three Citizens team up and combine their talents to design, model, and rig a spaceship.
Registration opens October 31st and ends on December 31st 2013.
ABOUT THE CONTEST:
Creating ultra-detailed spaceships is the heart of Star Citizen’s development.
From concept to final texturing, a ship can take teams of expert designers months to create the level of graphical fidelity and detail that have become hallmarks of the Star Citizen universe. Now Chris Roberts and his team of visual designers are looking to the community for the next great team of ship designs.
16 Finalist teams exit one by one until there is one Grand Prize winner honored with the addition of their spaceship into Chris Roberts’ new space epic, Star Citizen. Not to mention a $30,000 cash prize, a swag of other goodies and the first winning ships off the production press for each team members’ Hangar!
Whether or not you participate, subscribe to RSI’s YouTube channel to watch the drama unfold and see who can build Star Citizen’s Next Great Starship.
The weekly webcast show will kick off with sixteen finalist teams at 11am PST on January 31st 2014, which is when the specs will be released to each team for the main challenge; The Next Great Spaceship!
These sixteen teams of finalists will have to conceptualize, design, model, animate and rig their model while submitting their progress for weekly review by a panel of science fiction’s leading concept artists, designers and celebrities, along with the man himself, Chris Roberts.
Each successful challenge, takes you one step closer to the grand prize. Failure means you go ‘home’. In the end, the last two teams will be flown to Los Angeles to compete live in front of the judges and the community on June 8 2014, for the grand prize: $30,000, their ship incorporated into the Star Citizen universe, cool swag, and the title of... The Next Great Starship.

This is a very cool sci fi flick I came across today and I just felt I should share it with you guys, so if you have a few minutes to spare I recommend you have a look ;)
