About Us

Welcome to Relay.

We here at Relay eat, sleep, breathe, and dream Star Citizen. And we won’t pretend to be something we’re not. We are a Star Citizen fansite. But just as the Star Citizen development process is unique and ground-breaking, so must Relay be.

Right now, that means we transcribe and summarize all of CIG’s content, we analyze their development and their funding, we bring you up to the minute news, and we bring our opinions to you, the fans, through podcasts and streams.

It also means we provide a home for some of the best fiction in the Verse, and it means we highlight you, and people like you, around the community; the people making content that changes the conversation about the game.

We will continually evolve The Relay to provide new features and improve existing ones.

Above all, we will be a space for our unified community to come together and learn, explore, and discover Star Citizen

Our mission is to bring the ‘verse to life by creating, curating, aggregating, and publishing timely updates, quality analysis, and the best original thinking on Star Citizen, Cloud Imperium Games, and the community that has grown up around them.
