Escape Velocity is a full-cast audio science-fiction serial, written and produced by Christopher Jarvis and The Radio Theatre Workshop, based on the video game Elite: Dangerous.

When I produced series one and two of Elite: Escape Velocity I was overwhelmed by your reception to the series. Not just as a faithful fan adaptation of a game world you all loved as much as I did, but to the characters, stories, performers and music that made it such a success. With your help, series three was an incredible success and I'd like to invite you to take part in the creation of series four - where the story we started together comes to a dramatic conclusion.

That's where you come in. However much you can pledge provides funds to get the series made. Whether you want to contribute $1 and be a part of things, or pledge $8 per episode and join in with private post-show discussions, I appreciate each and every donation that helps get this show on the air. It's not going to be exclusive - Escape Velocity will still be released as a free podcast. But every supporter at $4 and above will have access to a download of a high bitrate version of the show. (The podcast is released as 128kbps mp3, while the private downloads are 320kbps).

So have a listen to previous episodes, watch the video, chat with me here or on my Facebook page and I hope you'll decide to support us on this incredible adventure. Thanks for being here!

Want to live in Commander Thane's world? Are you a player of Elite: Dangerous? Patrons at this level and above can join the Escape Velocity private group in Elite: Dangerous. Fly Thane's skies! And keep an eye out for him - there'll be a photo competition to spot Thane in action. If you're lucky, you'll get to role-play with the Commander himself. If you catch him on a good day, maybe he'll wing up and help you with your own action.

Private viewing & USB Reward (6 Episodes)

It's my aim for Escape Velocity to premiere at the same time each broadcast. I want each episode to be an event. With that in mind, Patrons at this pledge tier will be invited to a private chat room for the duration of the first broadcast and for a Q&A with me afterwards. I'm even planning to get cast members and other guests in, too, depending on availability. Includes all tiers above.
Additionally, Patrons who support at this level for 6 episodes automatically qualify for a 2gb USB stick containing that season (or nearest season if Patrons have joined midway).The USB sticks are printed front and back with Escape Velocity art.
Photographic evidence + Audio extras
$10 or more per Episode 22 patrons
Get behind the recording with candid photos of the recording process at our studio. For each episode you support at this level you will be delivered a digital file containing photos, video, outtakes and snippets of behind-the scenes direction and interviews. Includes all tiers above.
Script archivist
$13 or more per Episode 20 patrons
With the release of each episode (after broadcast) you will be sent a digital copy (PDF) of the recording script, plus scanned images of the director's own script, full of hand-corrections and stains. Includes all tiers above.
Goals

I have plans for awesome Patron-exclusive Escape Velocity content. Hitting this target per episode would allow me to dedicate the time needed to produce mini-episodes and short form audiobooks, expanding the world of Escape Velocity and the characters. Want to hear about Thane's time as a slave? How did Sarque infiltrate the Colmack Reeve corporation? What happened the day May broke out of the "school". This is the goal for that!
