    Wing Commander Academy Timeline

    Hi, Just wondering if you had a chance to look at the storyboards.

    Starflight III Fig Campaign

    Thanks for posting this. I hadn't heard. I'm actually unfamiliar with Fig as well. I really want to see this happen. They have an impressive group of industry people giving interviews. 360kB for each 5.25" floppy. :)

    Wing Commander Academy Timeline

    This wasn't actually the first time that I've seen it. It's been a while though and this was probably the first time I saw them all in nearly one sitting and noticed the continuing plot threads more. And it was a great show. Were the Edens' familiar with the franchise beforehand? A lot of...

    Wing Commander Academy Timeline

    I just binge watched the series the other day using the "Timeline Order" for viewing and I was wondering how the episode order was determined. Placing "Expendable" before "Chain of Command" makes sense. But it seems that Archer's story arc (freezing up in combat) is resolved in "Walking...

    WC1 "The Path of Most Medals" + helpful links

    Very interesting. And you did confirm that Hunter does need to die to win the medal in Venice 1. I'm kind of surprised that most guides I've found have inaccurate/incomplete medal information. I'm still wondering how to get the Gold Star in Firekka 2. Personally, I always try to get the best...

    WC1: Venice 1

    And I think killing Khajja is important too. I stayed on the winning path so he shows up in Venice 1.

    WC1: Venice 1

    No. It's been a while since I've tried. Someone posted above that Hunter has to die during the mission. Or is it that you get extra points for the mission if your wingman is already dead?

    Wing Commander Academy in Arabic (October 4, 2017)

    Just out of curiosity, what other languages was the series dubbed in?

    Hypothetically Cruise Though No Man's Sky At A Cool 500 KPS (August 28, 2016)

    I was thinking Starflight. It already has a lot of the feel of it (part of the reason I got it). A huge number of planets to explore, mining resources, interacting with aliens, and while Starflight had more of a plot (does No Man's Sky have a plot?), you were mostly free to just explore at...

    Wing Commander ship design inspirations

    Someone already noted the similarities with the Sartha and Kamrani corvette and ships from Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers: https://www.wcnews.com/chatzone/threads/no-guts-no-glory-april-7-2005.16361/#post-249265 Both also had very similar looking tractor beam effects (i.e. an energy...

    Star Trek Beyond

    For me, Insurrection felt like the antithesis of Star Trek. I had a bunch of problems with it, but with the Ba'ku, they seem to be advocating that we forget about exploring the cosmos and unraveling the mysteries of the universe and instead go Amish and plow fields and churn our own butter.

    WC3 Updated on GOG?

    Some games have a changelog that can be viewed in your library, but I didn't see one for WC3. The current installer version is 2.1.0.7, which is the one that I have from Nov. 2014. It looks like it hasn't changed, at least not what you download from the library.

    Indiana Joe: Raider Of The Lost Archive (March 7, 2016)

    Digital preservation? So did he get his hands on a Kryoflux?

    Then this happened...

    Okay, this is very interesting. http://www.ign.com/articles/2016/02/26/wrath-of-khan-director-nicholas-meyer-joins-new-star-trek-show-as-writer-producer?abthid=56d0c0b18df63aaa1000000a

    Then this happened...

    That's encouraging. I've heard good things about Hannibal, but I never watched.
