    Ha! See that guys, I made Ginger smile. The bar you speak of is in Kensington, my brother used to live there and frequent that pub. You're a high maintenance gal, hanging out in Kensington ;) I'm going to put this beer down and go to bed now, before I realise that drunkenly flirting with Ginger Lynn Allen is in fact all a wonderful dream. Thanks for making our day at the CIC. Cheers!

    This is a sketch of the original "sexier" concept art for the Rachel character from when they were designing Wing Commander III: http://static.wcnews.com/newestshots/full/Rachel.PNG

    Your pictures reminded me of that, for obvious reasons!

    Also: I know this is a ridiculous thing to notice, and believe me it took me several hours to look down, but your toenails look really nice!

    Well, I guess that kind of anwers the obvious "who would win in a fight between Rachel and Flint" question...

    So my real question: Given that your character Rachel is a grease-monkey... a gifted fighter mechanic. Are you mechanically inclined in real life? Do engines and cars get your motor running so to speak?

    Thanks for keeping in touch, means a lot to us wing commander fans, crossing my fingers here that a new wing commander game happens in the future. I would not imagine a wing commander game without your presence in it. You are an important character in the saga. I dunno if future games would feature real life fmv footage for character (would be cool in my opinion) but if anything I hope you one day reprise your role and continue the awesomeness of wing commander for everyone to enjoy!

    Interesting you say that, we have Ms. Allen in the forum saying she'd be interested in such a role, and Chris Roberts on the IRC saying that if he had anything to do with the next WC game he'd love to bring in some of the original FMV actors and have them 'motion captured' for Avatar style CGI FMV.

    I do hope we see/hear some of the old faces if and when Wing Commander returns.

    Thank you so much for the kind words. I never get tired of hearing things like that. I worked very hard on this game, and just love that so many others truly enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed making it. It was an absolute blast. Wish I could do it again!

    Well I think you've probably seen the pictures by now. I want to thank you for asking me to do that by the way. I had to dig through a few closets to find these things, but the memories they brought back were so wonderful. And the jumpsuit still fit! I actually had a great time putting it on and taking the pictures. I have another one as well and when I have time I'll try and take some more pictures of some of the things I have. Thank you again for prodding me to dig through the back of my closet. You're the best!

    Heh, this is very cool - Mindy Hester who played Aurora Finley in Prophecy has posted at the CIC too. We all appreciate your continued contribution. Are you still in touch with any of your former Wing Commander acting colleagues?

    Well, how awesome is this for all of us WC fans!

    Well thanks for joining us here Ginger, its great to see a celebrity from WC being involved with the community.

    My first question would be, what has brought you out now to speak with the WC community at this time? And why the WC CIC?

    If I come up with any others I'll type them up, thanks again for coming online here to speak to us.

    Nah, it's the way of Web fora--enough trolls exist online that any sane person's reaction to an extraordinary claim is to request evidence.

    Also, glad to see that Ginger is still in the same shape as always even after so long. Who says that beauty has to fade with time? ^_~

    Aww, don't feel bad, I get it too. It's just hard to prove a negative. I guess the pictures did the trick though! Still short on time but promise I'll be back to respond to some of the questions here. You guys are great.

    It stands for United Service Organizations; sort of a volunteer organization that entertains the troops while they're away from home. If you've seen a war movie where they bring celebrities and dancing girls and such to put on a show for soldiers, that's the USO (there's probably some British equivalent?)

    Wing Commander has its own equivalent, though! We hear about the TCSO in Wing Commander I (and there's an ad for a TCSO show on the back of Claw Marks!)
