This is the annual multi-phase competition meant to figure out just who has the best ship in the universe. Phase 1 will begin with the team challenging the community to champion their vessel however they best see fit,

“You can do this however you see fit – bake a cake, snap a screenshot, paint a portrait, write a song, or anything else you can think of! We’ve got a lot of fun additions this year that we think you’ll like, ranging from sweet new prizes to a Free Fly in the latter half of the competition. Stay tuned, because more information is coming your way later this week!”
