Star Citizen Alpha 3.0 Loaner Rules
Backers who own ships not available in the PU (Persistent Universe) will receive respective loaner ships until those ship become "Flight Ready."
Loaner ships are not replacement ships. They are not intended to provide a 1:1 "best case substitute" for a ship that isn't flight ready yet.
As new ships become available the loaners can be substituted by CIG.
Loaners are not permanent additions to players accounts. They are temporary until ships become flight ready.

Why do I have a Starfarer Gemini in my hangar?
If you bought a Reclaimer, Orion, Banu Merchantman, Hull C, D or E or an Endeavor you will have a Starfarer as a temporary loaner. The loaner can change in the future until your ship if flight ready.
Why do I have an URSA Rover in my hangar?
If you bought a Cyclone, Lynx Rover or Nova you will have been given an URSA Rover as a temporary loaner until the vehicle you purchased becomes playable.
I bought a Cyclone Variant (such as the TR) and have an Ursa Rover? Why don't I have the base Cyclone?
This will probably get updated sometime in the near future.
