//INCOMING SCRAMBLE ALERT TO ALL PILOTS//
The BWC fleet needs you! Your mission is to join your fellow BWC pilots in battle for several game modules, consisting of Pirate Swarm, Star Marine, and Squadron Battle. This EPIC OPERATIONfor Star Citizen begins on Saturday, April 8th and goes through Friday, June 2nd.
The Operation consists of three segments:
Segment One - Pirate Swarm - April 8 to April 21
Form a wing with your fellow BWC captains and fight off wave after wave of pirates trying to steal your...asteroids? Facing down 18 rounds of pirates flooding you will require solid teamwork and cooperation with your fellow pilots, so prepare for a challenge!
Segment Two - Star Marine - April 29 to May 12
Prepare for some team on team FPS action with Star Marine! With maps having various areas of zero-gravity and zero-atmosphere, solid coordination will be needed to bring the classic FPS skills to this game mode. As always, teamwork will be needed to capture and defend points from the other team to get points!
Segment Three - Squadron Battle - May 20 to June 2
Another team on team game mode, but this time in your ships! Take to this arena-style action-filled dogfighting game mode with your squadron and prepare to slug it out with the other team in the cold, dark abyss of space. Each team will start with a certain amount of tickets, and will have to bring down the other team's tickets by damaging and destroying their ships! Lose all your tickets and the game will enter Final Kill, where you will have no respawns!
For a detailed schedule of all of the operations available during this time, see this SCHEDULE of weekly operations. Multiple operations will be offered across time zones each week allowing players plenty of opportunities to participate.
This Epic Operation comes hot on the heels of the new patch, 2.6.2, which primarily consists of the ability to switch game modes without the long loading times, and a number of bugfixes that should allow for the operation to run more smoothly. 2.6.2 will also bring the release of a new flight-ready ship, the DRAKE Buccaneer.

SC Into The Verse Ribbon - - This ribbon is awarded for attending at least six operations during the Star Citizen "Into The Verse" Epic Operation.
SC Into The Verse Medal 1 - - This medal is awarded for attending at least twelve operations during the Star Citizen "Into The Verse" Epic Operation.

It will be a great deal of action and adventure for everyone! All of the details of the operation can be found HERE.
What is Star Citizen?
From the mind of Chris Roberts, acclaimed creator of Wing Commander and Freelancer, Star Citizen is a 100% crowd funded game aiming to create a living, breathing science fiction universe with unparalleled immersion. More than a space combat sim, more than a first person shooter and more than an MMO: Star Citizen is the First Person Universe that will allow for unlimited gameplay.
