Today Star Citizen developer Cloud Imperium Games opened a new hall at the Intergalactic Aerospace Expo 2950 dedicated to Drake Interplanetary.

To celebrate, they released a new trailer with  Jeremy Clarkson parody Jax McCleary focusing on the often slightly shady manufacturer of rugged but reliable ships that tend to be favored by pirates and outlaws.

You can check it out below.

In other Star Citizen news, the crowdfunding cavalcade during the expo is continuing, with the total currently at $324,779,591, having passed $324 million today.

The number of registered accounts is also close to 2.9 million (currently at 2,891,190).

As usual, you should keep in mind that it’s known that not all of them are paying players. The number includes free accounts created for a variety of reasons, including Free Fly events like the one going on right now.

If you want to learn more, we recently got a sizable update on the progress of the single-player campaign Squadron 42 and a really lovely cinematic trailer. On top of that, we just heard that a new studio has been opened to create new systems and content for Star Citizen.

For the sake of full disclosure, the author of this article has been a Star Citizen backer since the original Kickstarter campaign several years ago, so you should keep that in mind while reading.
