Ooingu Komandaa

If you've ever wondered how to write "open fire" in Japanese, today's special movie is just for you. We have a nice DVD rip of the Japanese trailer for the Wing Commander movie. It differs from the US trailer in a number of ways, including different music and Japanese subtitles. They also corrected the date to 2654. Encoded in Divx 5 format it weighs in at 11 megs. You can download the trailer here. Also, the title of this update seems to be a translation of how the Japanese write the title "Wing Commander." How odd.

TCS Phoenix Still Holding the Line in Gemini
2015-05-24 -- The crew of the TCS Phoenix is still cruising the star systems of Gemini Sector rooting out pirates and fending off the Kilrathi. For fans itching for old school '90s style forums-based role playing, Wing Commander From the Ashes is their best bet.

Ultima Art Project Moves Forward, But WC Element Still Possible
2015-05-23 -- If you're not a Patreon follower of Denis Loubet, you may have missed the results from the recent vote for his next Origin-themed artwork.

"Let's just say she could hypothetically cruise at a cool 500 kilometers per second..."
2015-05-20 -- While cleaning his hard drive, Lc4Hunter stumbled upon old Excalibur model he'd created long ago.

Hari Sector Scans Reveal Gigantic Menace

WC Vega Sets Up Classic Dogfight
2015-05-17 -- Two iconic wings of fighters have been added to the WC Vega flight roster. Two foam-and-cardboard Scimitars were completed first, but they've been the most challenging design to build so far. A pair of Dralthis came together a bit more easily, and their presence allows Mike Peters and his students to set up some slick space combat action in their upcoming fan film project.

Bearcats Bagged By Border Worlders
2015-05-16 -- Klavs returns from Speradon with a fan favorite -- the iconic Bearcat heavy fighter. Its slick but powerful design has always had a huge appeal, although the ship itself only made a brief appearance in the series. Klavs has also provided a short animation showing a pair of Bearcats en route somewhere, possibly a manufacturing plant of some kind.
