Our last Inside Scoop was either an April Fools joke or wishful thinking. Personally, I was secretly hoping some of it was coming true… *sigh* …But let’s set flights of fancy aside. It’s nearing the end of May and we have a new Inside Scoop for our dedicated fans. This release contains a lot of hard facts, some hints on future developments, and intriguing insights into where our subscription money goes.
(As with our other Scoops, this article was pieced together from an email discussion. Some wording was edited to help clarify and highlight main points. Money was a weighty topic and we dumped a huge load of questions on Joshua. We were afraid we might have scared him off, but he found the time to give us some excellent and exciting answers. Super thankful!)
Our last Scoop article shared all the details about Leagues and Championships. Now the Cognitum War is underway, we can turn our attention back to the future. We at Planets Magazine are pleased to bring you an announcement: Nu’s got new features and ships coming your way. Moreover, Planet.nu’s usually inscrutable leader, Joshua, is here to tell us all about it.
NOTE: We’re told the art is preliminary, and it may not come in by release time, so TS has given us a filler picture or two. Contrary to appearances, no alcohol was used writing this article. -G

Last month we hinted at a followup to our exclusive first interview with Joshua. Today, we can finally announce that the rumor is true: We’ve got solid answers on some of the most pressing questions of the day.

The Cylons have taken over the Planets Magazine. Thanks to their revolutionary Resurrection Ship technology, the venerable magazine has been brought back from the dead, and now… No, seriously: We may be back, but we’re not Cylons. (Although…would we really know? -G) (Speak for yourself. -T)
As our first project here at the revived Planets Magazine, we wanted to touch base with Joshua and get a look at some of the coming events we have to look forward to at Planets Nu. He’s agreed to let us see a little bit of what he’s got in mind for the coming months.

Hi! I’m Gnerphk and this is Talespin. (Pretend you can see him wave. He’s waving now.) We’ve tracked down the enigmatic Joshua to ask him a few questions about Planets Nu: how we’re doing, where we’re heading, and what we’re likely to see in the future.
This is a Planets Magazine Action News Update, coming to you live from the Pisces War with a special report!
Hello, I’m Jim Chancellite. The top story tonight is the continuing chaos in Fascist State Headquarters, as more party members are being summoned for what has been announced as an “Emergency Quorum” following the unexplained absence of Supreme Commander Plumilol.

At the PlanetsCon 2015 in Leiden, Netherlands the first Turn of the Year Awards were held. Many turns in four categories were handed in from all over the world, nominated by the PlanetsMagazine Crew and presented to the PlanetsCon participants who then discussed and voted democratically for each winner. A big ‘Thank you!’ goes out to all Continue reading →
Planets.Nu has a great and very active community. We all like to chat and discuss about our favorite game for hours. It’s fun to do it online and meet Commanders from all over Planet Earth, it is even more fun to do it face to face. I have done it in the past, small gatherings with 3-4 other Commanders who live nearby or having a beer with a Commander who find some time during a business trip to your city.
