AD found a very odd translation of the Wing Commander Academy television series being advertised on YouTube. "Star Dima" appears to have converted the show into Arabic - Wing Commander logo and all. Cadet Blair has been renamed 'Mazen', Maniac is 'Ravi' and Archer is called 'Khawla'. We wouldn't normally link to what looks like some kind of sketchy pirate site, but this is too bizarre not to share. If your antivirus program is up to date, check out the Google Translated version here. If you haven't picked up an official copy of the show on DVD yet, we highly recommend it! Amazon currently carries the set for just $11.99, which is a phenomenal deal. There seems to be a 1-2 week backorder at the moment, so your order now would help confirm there's still demand out there!
EDIT: It does appear that the Arabic dubbed version of Wing Commander Academy did air on television. Also, AD has since dug up the intro to the Arabic version! Not to be missed, this version also features all new music and... lyrics? This is some crazy stuff! Check it out below

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! (2018-03-18)
