As part of INN’s ongoing mission to attract and welcome new members to the growing Star Citizen community, we’d like to start a program that helps us make a difference. We’re pleased to introduce the Sponsor a Spaceman Program. The concept is simple, if you’ve got a few bucks laying around and you want to help INN make somebody’s Star Citizen dreams come true, this is the way to do it. Rather than just give away ships to randomly drawn individuals all year, this is one special program where the decision will be made based on need.
I’ve said it before, but it’s worth repeating: Star Citizen alpha backers are among the most dedicated, enthusiastic, and generous gamers in the world. We are dedicated stakeholders and genuine pioneers who are excited about our opportunity to participate in the ongoing funding and development of Chris Robert’s vision. Some of us are also fortunate enough to have more ships than we need.
Everything about this I support. o7! https://t.co/na3cABDRm3

The Sponsor a Spaceman Program is the only needs based ship giveaway we’re aware of in the ‘Verse and that makes it special. For each Sponsor a Spaceman ship INN gives away we will run an essay contest and select a winner based on demonstrated need, interest in the game, and community spirit. The winning essays will be published anonymized.
We’re still in the process of determining the selection criteria but we will have a selection board to increase the fairness while reducing the possibility of capricious decision making. If you’ve got thoughts on how to make it as fair as possible and accomplish our mission, we’d like to hear from you!
As a Sponsor, we’ll add your name and a link to whatever you want to our homepage using a special Spaceman Sponsor badge which you can also put on your own website.
If you’d like to participate in the Sponsor a Spaceman program, please visit our permanent page for the program.
