Players buying Solar War during the Alpha phase will now receive a special bonus: The ability to put themselves into every copy of the game as a recruitable officer. (And yes, of course those awesome people who already bought the game also get this bonus)

To get started, hit the "Connect" menu item on the Desura page for the game and follow the instructions. Once you are done, you can start picking the stats for your in-game persona.

Once you have finished making your officer character, it will be included in the game starting from the next released update (possibly excepting minor bugfix updates ending with a letter).

Connecting your Desura copy of the game to the Solar War site also gives you instant access to the latest standalone installers for the Windows and Linux versions of the game.
