Dallas (star system)
Behind the Screens
The system is named afer Origin Systems employee Dallas Snell. Snell has been referenced in Wing Commander II ("Dallas" and General Snell) and in Wing Commander Prophecy (Jack Slayton/Jason Fargo, callsign Dallas). The unusual jump line references a joke in Vol. III, No. 44 of Point of Origin (August 13, 1993); Snell was late in delivering a highly anticipated rework of Origin's organizational chart, prompting the newsletter to run a graphic showing only his own name pointing back to itself.
