Wing Commander Auctions Update ID

Mark Vearrier, a veteran artist who worked on Wing Commander III, IV, Prophecy and Secret Ops, is auctioning off Origin memorabelia! His first lot includes the ever popular Kilrathi Saga and a number of posters. He promises to put up some other exciting items in the near future... including some very cool sounding props! Here's some details of what's available now:
Wing Commander: The Kilrathi Saga: Copies of Kilrathi Saga are always valuable... but this one even more so -- it's signed by Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts! Back in 1990, Origin released a signed edition of the original Wing Commander which included the first addon and a hat... and Mr. Roberts' signature doesn't look to have changed much in ten years! This KS would make the ultimate bookend to anyone's Wing Commander game collection. (5 Days Left, Current Bid $121)

Wing Commander Universe Poster: This is a Wing Commander Universe poster, like those included in Wing Commander Prophecy... or is it?! This is, in fact, a rolled version given to Origin employees - so it's nice and smooth, like a movie poster. Buy it and then carry it around so you'll always have something to be signed in case you run into Captain Johnny. (5 Days Left, Current Bid $.99)

Wing Commander Prophecy Poster: These posters were given out only to Origin employees and as promotional items at trade shows. This is only the second time I've ever seen one available for sale in the US - so jump on it! (5 Days Left, Current Bid $.99)

In addition, you can find posters promoting the likes of Bioforge, Ultima, Wings of Glory and others here! Good luck to all.

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)

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)
