Mythic Project begins today! Live updates throughout the week at http://www.youtube.com/WingCommanderCIC. Videos filmed from ChrisReid's cell phone will automatically appear on YouTube. Check this space regularly! The team will also be taking separate high definition videos of the event to archive/upload later.
Members of the CIC staff and other volunteers have made their way to Virginia to help archive what remains of Origin Systems' data library. We will be updating throughout the next week to let everyone know how the mission is going - expect big things!
Thanks to the invaluable assistance of the Wing Commander community, "Team Technosaur" is primed and ready with working equipment and methods for reading everything from 3.5" diskettes to SyQuest removable hard drives. Good work, everyone - we'll be working for you!
Upper Memory Block Walks Down Memory Lane
The Upper Memory Block podcast has kicked off a fun play-through of Wing Commander 2. Game streaming is a common pastime this days and there are lots of folks out there recording their Wing Commander sessions, so we don't highlight them 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! (2018-03-18)
