Since 3301

An occasional poster series by Alec Turner.

Not long after the Fuel Rats were first hatched back in 3301 I began creating an occasional series of poster images around the theme of an advertising slogan with the tagline "... since 3301" (much like many of the great marketing campaigns of the 20th century).

unusual and exceptional

Many of the early posters featured screenshots captured at the moment of performing a rescue along with some appropriate message pertaining to the circumstances of the rescue and/or quotes from the rescuee.

What follows here is a collection of all the posters I've managed to find thus far in vaguely chronological order. I hope you like them.

providing refuelling services

providing fuel to the fuelish

being awesome (and modest)

returning occupied escape pods to safety

Can't quite remember but I think there may have been an accidental ramming incident involved in this next one!

making a lasting impression

scaring the crap out of pilots

turning misery into adventure

better than death by asphyxiation

giving it to you because we know you want it

lovers not fighters

laughing in the face of T-Tauri stars

extreme loyalty

giving a damn

group hugs

flying to hutton orbital

non judgemental

Another year another christmas!

delivering fuel, satsumas and christmas cheer (but mostly fuel)

snorting fuel at source and mainlining it into the veins of the galaxy

keeping cool when the heat is on


if it fuels we can fill it

bringing the rescue to you

saving the live ones (and honouring the dead)

Christmas ... again!

delivering the gift of fuel, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year

there to save you when we can, there to pay our respects when we can't
