Wing Commander End Run

End Run contains two stories: the short story "Wing Commander: Milk Run" by Christopher Stasheff and the titular novel by William R. Forstchen.


For generations the Terrans have battled the alien Kilrathi to a standstill. But now the slightly superior human technology is slowly, but at an accelerating pace, giving way before the vast resources the cat-like beings can bring to bear.

For the Kilrathi, the stakes are high: their continued existence as an expanding imperial power.

For us the stakes are continued existence, period. Our only hope is a long shot, a surprise strike at the heart of Kilrathi power, a suicidal End Run...
