    "该幸运十八" Lucky 18 Charter Membership

    Icarus Interstellar "该幸运十八" Lucky 18 Charter Membership. Kicking off our Kickstarter campaign for 2017 with a reopening of Charter Membership drive, the "该幸运十八" Lucky 18 Charter membership rewards package is super sweet.
    First, Charter Members are the first 1000 Icarus Interstellar Lifetime Members. Charter Member (MBR) numbers 0001 through 0152 from our Lifetime Membership kick-off in 2015 are now identified as Icarus Interstellar's Founding Charter Members. Considering our mission–to BUILD A STARSHIP–MBR numbers are for life.
    Next, the "该幸运十八" Lucky 18 Icarus Interstellar membership group picks up at Charter MBR number 0153–where we closed off in 2015–and the "该幸运十八" Lucky 18 designation closes with MBR number 0170.
    Lastly, the designation. In Chinese culture, 18 is powerful number implying good luck because the word sounds so similar to a Chinese (Mandarin) phrase meaning “get rich for sure”. This is terrific designation for reopening Icarus Interstellar’s Charter Memberships and “该幸运十八" is literally Chinese for “Lucky 18”. Perfect for members with dreams of interstellar missions.

    In 2017, we are excited to open up Charter Membership enrollment again and offer the "该幸运十八" Lucky 18 designation as non-members next opportunity to claim an early-adopter Charter MBR number still in the First 500.

    The "该幸运十八" Lucky 18 Charter membership rewards package includes:

    - Icarus Interstellar Icarii membership card featuring "该幸运十八" Lucky 18 designation;

    - Personalized stainless steel Icarus Interstellar Icarii Dog Tags embossed with name, year of enrollment, and enrollment number;

    - Special-edition Icarus Interstellar metal alloy key chain & dongle embossed with personal enrollment number and the icarusinterstellar.org/found URL;

    - Letter of Recognition of "该幸运十八" Lucky 18 Charter member status signed by Icarus Interstellar president Dr Andreas Tziolas;

    - One (1) year free access to new Icarus Interstellar subscriber app and all associated subscriber benefits;

    - Permanent acknowledgement as part of the "该幸运十八" Lucky 18 on the Icarus Interstellar website at icarusinterstellar.org/charter.

    Lastly, no membership enrollment numbers are held. ENROLLMENT NUMBERS ARE ISSUED FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE. Icarus Interstellar MBR (member) enrollment numbers are allotted individually one-time only and afterwards are non-recyclable.

    Friends & Family Charter Membership

    Icarus Interstellar Friends & Family Charter Membership. The source of strength of Icarus Interstellar are our friends and families. With that in mind, Icarus Interstellar has set out to recognize you who are invaluable people in our lives with the Friends & Family Charter Membership set.

    Friends & Family are the next available Charter Memberships.

    Beginning with Membership enrollment number (MBR) 0171 and continuing to MBR 0200, the Friends & Family will break us into the 200’s of Charter Membership enrollment numbers and are part of our cornerstone First 250 group of Icarii Charter Members. And there are only 1000 lifetime Charter Memberships ever.

    The truth is friends and family are people who we could not imagine visiting another solar system without, the individuals we would be excited to have aboard the starship with us. Friends & Family are people who add life to the party, keep us in line, and remind us what is so great about living that we’d look for more of it in a whole other solar system. In other words, regardless whether you love Alpha Centauri B or not (but seriously who doesn’t?), if you are one of these folks you are one of Our Folks and true Icarii.

    Friends & Family are you, Friends & Family are me, Friends & Family are us. And Friends & Family are even our actual friends and family! Like the saying goes, get in where you fit in.

    The Friends & Family Charter membership rewards package includes:

    - Icarus Interstellar Icarii membership card featuring Friends & Family designation;

    - Personalized stainless steel Icarus Interstellar Icarii Dog Tags embossed with name, year of enrollment, and enrollment number;
