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!

Kilrathi Fleet Gets Large Scale LLOD Upgrades

A couple of monster models have made their way into the Last Line of Defense project. Using some newly discovered information, Deathsnake has scaled up his fearsome Rigakh cruiser. Fairly credible stats imply it's even larger than the Confederation class dreadnought! (2018-03-19)

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)
