I've Got that Sinking Feeling Update ID

Here's one final mystery: a single still from Wing Commander III included in Origin's web materials that doesn't fit with the others... or the game itself! This brilliant picture of the Tiger's Claw is a great "what's wrong with this picture" exercize: it has Arrows instead of Hellcats, a different placement for the beach rocks and is missing the characters' shadows. Notice anything else? The file itself doesn't match the web department's other FMV captures--it's called "LSBD1170" instead of "STILL#" and is dated July 6, 1994, nearly two months before any of the others. The original scene from the game is displayed on the right.

Wing Commander IV Storyboards - Scene 74 Update ID

Scene 74-Depressed Maniac and Blair in flight control in the scene that taught millions of teenagers the word 'libation'.

These storyboard images were recovered from a backup CD containing materials belonging to Origin's web development team. They were dated November 17, 1995 and were likely planned for a never-completed web feature.
