Congratulations Award Winners! Update ID

Hundreds of votes have been cast, and we now have the results! Many many Wing Commander endeavors made their mark on 2012, but only a couple can win the contest. Thanks to all who helped select these few! Without further delay, here are the winners:


Pix's Origin Adventures has won in the category of Wing Commander Web Site of the Year! There's plenty of attention devoted to Wing Commander and Ultima at his site, but Pix is also careful to include Bioforge, Cybermage and many other Origin series in his research. In addition to gathering the most votes, we also hear that quite a few former Origin veterans use Pix's site as their go-to source of information or to relive old times.




The Wing Commander RPG Wiki is our Web Site Runner Up! In mid 2011, capi3101 created a plan that outlined exactly what his RPG project needed, and over the course of 18 months, he proceeded to build exactly that. Along the way, fans were kept informed by weekly updates, and several related side-projects were also released.



The Fan Project of the Year is WC Saga! Its selection comes as little surprise, as anticipation for the game's release had been building for many years. That event came in March, which brought significant attention to the Wing Commander series from around the web. After taking some time off, the team is now working on ports for other operating systems.



The Fan Project runner up is Klav's Models! In 2012, Klavs both released new designs and improved on older ones in order to provide fans an opportunity to own a physical piece of Wing Commander. Work continues to increase feasible sizes and decrease at-cost pricing. There's even tantalizing prospects for pre-painted designs!




And that's it for 2012! Our biggest thanks goes out to all the people who work hard every day to keep the Wing Commander community going with exciting fan projects and dedicated web sites. Here's to a great 2013!

Cha Cha To This Kilrathi Theme

Origin composer George Oldziey has released another awesome Wing Commander track from his live recording session held a few weeks ago. This one is the "Kilrathi Cha Cha" as remixed and performed by Gato 6, his talented Latin Jazz band. It's full of fun and personality - give it a listen below! (2018-02-25)

Maverick Gets Pantsed

LOAF is still scratching the surface of his 30 boxes of Academy archival materials, but when he does get a chance to dig in, he uncovers some real gems! Take for, example, Cadet Blair's sorely underrated bottom half. Everyone is all into torsos, but you can't have one without the other! (2018-02-24)

Mark Hamill Premiering New Documentary at SXSW

It's a good week for Mark Hamill fans! In addition to getting his Hollywood star, Mr. Hamill will be returning to the birthplace of Wing Commander next month to help debut a new documentary, The Director and the Jedi, about his work with Rian Johnson on the new Star Wars film. (2018-02-23)

Mark Hamill To Receive Hollywood Star

Thanks in part to his recent success resuming the role of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars, actor Mark Hamill will soon be getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The ceremony is set for March 8, 2018 at 11:30 am. I'd encourage Wing Commander fans nearby to go check it out, but the crowd will likely be substantial. (2018-02-22)

Banshee Kicks Off Flat Universe's Border Worlds Faction
