It's time for the almost regularly scheduled Holding The Line chapter, and as usual Raptor is here to tell us all about it:
Hey all, Raptor here.You can read chapter 108 here.
HTL continues with the second part of Scraps of Honour 9. You'll recall thatin the last chapter, the Scrappers were refining their dogfighting skills inthe simulators, and finding out the hard way that tactics used againsthumans wouldn't work against the Nephilim. Meanwhile, a flight of Intrudersfrom the Necromancer Squadron had stumbled on a black ops fighter testingbase that no-one in the taskforce had known about. This chapter picks upfrom there. Please send any and comments to the writer, Nick "Chaeronea"Deane, at firstname.lastname@example.org, not me.

Daedalus Station Gets Major Facelift
The Maslas Brothers have kicked off their big 2018 push with a huge revamp to Daedalus Station, the home base of Wing Commander Flat Universe. There are some nice improvements to welcome in new players, plus a lot of back end rework to make future updates easier to make. Other subsections include an archive of the Destiny's Way magazine and a ship database that syncs with the actual stats of the fighters in the game. (2018-02-15)

Check Out Kilrathi Saga's Swag
Longtime Wingnut Joshua Dworkin has put together a pretty neat unboxing video. Since this trend came along relatively recently, it's cool to see these done for classic Wing Commanders, and I don't think we've posted a Kilrathi Saga version before. Completionists will be happy to see that he's kept his unrelated reference cards and advertisements, and we get good glimpses at the awesome discs, beefy manual and super cool 2673/1997/2003/2014/2025 calendar.

Stealth Carrier Sneaks Into The News
DefianceIndustries has put together a very sleek stealth carrier that belongs to the Black Lance. He's dubbed it the Typhon, and it's strongly inspired by the Evansville class transport depicted in Wing Commander 4. The ship has been modeled in really exotic detail with nifty hexagonal hull patterns and interior items on the flight deck. (2018-02-12)
