A number of people have recently asked about an easter egg hidden in Unknown Enemy. Wulf describes it like this.
If you click on the right window pane in the lounge/observation area of the Dauntless, the screen will change to the Tiger's Claw's rec room! The thing is, if I talk to Shotglass, a voice on the loudspeaker will say things in German each time I click him. Can someone translate for me? Thanks!
Quarto and Mekt-Hakkikt provided the answer.
Secret Ops for some reason contained three voiceover files for the German-language version of Prophecy, and that's what Shotglass says. The three phrases are (literally translated. The original english sentences may be a bit different):
You can talk about Unknown Enemy in their forum here.
- "Lt. Casey, please report to the ready room. Lt. Casey to the ready room."
- "All pilots to the mission briefing."

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
