There's a new poll up today that asks which Kilrathi name is your favorite among a select few. Virtually all Wingnuts should be familiar with some of these warriors, although there are a couple lesser known (but cool sounding!) characters mixed in as well. Can you place every Kil? Is there someone you think has an even better name? Hit the Discuss link to let us know!
The last poll asked about the most disruptive traitor in the Wing Commander series. Admiral Tolwyn took a commanding lead with Jazz Colson and Ralgha nar Hhallas in a close fight for second. In fourth place was Foreign Minister Rhonda Jamison, who cooperated with the Kilrathi during the False Peace Armistice in exchange for her captive son. Also, here's an honorable mention to Governor Menesch who received just 1% of the vote, but was responsible for selling thousands upon thousands of Talons on the black market in Gemini!
Do the poll options above look more like gibberish than fearsome kats? In addition to the novels and card game, Star*Soldier mentions many of the Empire's greats. The amazing game manual for Wing Commander Arena is a trove of information on the current state of the WC universe. From the perspective of the frontier in the year 2701, it tells the story of the Nephilim War and much more. The book is a free download and absolutely everyone should have it.
