Wing Commander Blu-ray Ships! Update ID

We've got good news for Wingnuts who had their hearts set on an August 6 Wing Commander viewing party! Shipping notifications have been sent out to those who ordered the Blu-ray from Target. This bodes well for chances that other retailers will begin to ship/sell stock in the next few days, and it suggests that the "August 13" street date floating around is either an error or otherwise miscommunicated. Certain retailers "pre-ship" their discs so that they arrive on a game or movie's street date. The order below was placed with standard shipping, so the actual delivery window is up in the air at the moment. However, we do expect Amazon to ship their copies within a day or two with arrivals scheduled for Tuesday (or even Monday for a few lucky fans!). There may still be time to get your order in for release date delivery! Due to the wide variety of major retailers listing the disc online, we also expect it to make in an appearance in stores. We'll be out in force on Tuesday to hopefully snap shots of a new WC product on shelves - feel free to send yours in as well!

Black Lance Transport Certified For Covert Cargo

After leading the charge with a pair of exotic Black Lance designs earlier this year, DefianceIndustries has circled back around and completed the Evansville class transport that we see in Wing Commander 4. It has a fairly sleek profile for a transport as well as oversized engines, which form a pretty effective combo. There's no better way to sneak clandestine cargo to out-of-the-way places!

Happy St. Patrick's Day From The Green Salthi

Confederation hull plating is well known for its green texture, and terran soldiers even occasionally sport a green tinted outfit, but it's a far less common color on the Kilrathi (aside from the kats that actually have green skin). We know the common brown color of Kilrathi ships comes from the hue of their local durasteel, but there's one major exception to this: the green Salthi - or Jalthi, rather. The Secret Missions for the Super Nintendo had to squeeze to fit everything on the cartridge, and one noteworthy cut was the elimination of the six-shooter Jalthi model. (2018-03-17)

Explore Wing Commander History as Prelude to Star Citizen

Magnets & Miracles Gaming has put together a historical overview video series going through some of Chris Roberts' older games and how they formed the genesis of what we see being planned for Star Citizen. It's similar to what the Cloud Imperium crew put together in their series of RSI Museum videos. Part 1 focuses on basic back story, Wing Commander and Wing Commander II. (2018-03-16)

Un Juego de Chris Roberts

Christian Klein, the Pixel Engineer, has dug up another awesome European localization. It's a second Spanish DROsoft box that includes a combination of both Secret Missions in the same package! The reverse side of each has been translated and combined into one, but the included paper inserts appear to still be in English. (2018-03-15)

Goodbye, Stephen Hawking

The extraordinary theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has passed away and tributes are pouring in from across the internet. As a genius thinker and pioneer in space, he made his mark on the whole genre of science-fiction, including Wing Commander. On the universe map, star systems are often named after developers, authors and even fans. (2018-03-14)
