- Simply put, this has blown a lot of other crowd-sourced projects out of the water, raking in over $100,000,000 by the end of 2015, leaving the initial fundraising goal of $500,000 so far behind you need a telescope to see it.
- The ship commercials (trailers for the game that showcase one of its myriad of ships) have a few of their own.
- The Origin Jumpworks 300 series commercial gives us some fine Technology Porn and reminisces of a luxury car commercial, all the while asking a simple question: "What is speed?"
- The RSI Aurora's commercial isn't quite as flashy, but the amount of detail put into the Freeze Frame Bonuses has to be appreciated.
- The commercial for the Anvil Aerospace Hornet showcases the fighter's badassness by outmaneuvering a hostile Aurora and then taking a 300-series to the curb with its Gatling laser cannons. It's hard to believe that the Hornet's pilot went through all that trouble just for some ice cream for his wife, eh?
- The MISC Freelancer's commercial is conspicuously based on ads for American pickup trucks, complete with what sounds like the same blue-collar Midwestern voiceover artist, while giving us a ship that looks and feels like the Serenity.
- It's no slouch in the combat department, either: when cornered by two pirates in Cutlasses, the Freelancer pilot decks one of the pirates with his side cannons while taking out the other one with a missile salvo. Bad. Ass.
- Though no first-hand source has confirmed as such, many a fan and apparently Engadget believe it's Lance Henriksen doing the voice-over for this commercial.
- 2945: The Journey Begins. What better way to showcase the RSI Constellation than by using a Shout-Out to 2001?
- "I keep trying to push the limit, but I can't find the limit!!" Introducing the Origin Jumpworks M50 Interceptor. Never has Top Gear IN SPACE! seemed so cool.
- The Drake Cutlass commercial provides us with a space-age tango of death (and that is literal-the Cutlass' pilot is listening to tango during the whole dogfight). And the final scene of the commercial gives the tango a bit of a rock mix while the pilot goes get a victory drink.
- This video features a Rousing Speech given by Admiral Bishop about how the UEE has to go on the offensive against the Vanduul's forces and gain victory or else Humankind will not survive. And yes, that is Gary Oldman you're hearing - and the video also serves as an introduction to the cast of Squadron 42, which includes John Rhys-Davies, Mark Hamill, Gary Oldman, and Gillian Anderson, among others.
