    Right now, I'm in the middle of playing Wing Commander 3 for the first time ever, thanks to my wife, who hooked me up on my birthday. I "found the keys left in the ignition" of the Excalibur, and though it is a good ship, I find myself returning again and again to the Arrow. The Arrow, I...

    Rachel creeps me out!

    Is anyone else creeped out by the whole Rachel-Casey thing in Prophecy? The chick is like twice his age and doesn't even look all that good anymore. Finley is older than Casey, but at least she still looks pretty good, and what about stiletto? The prophecy gold guide mentions something...

    6,000 Marines???

    The Midway can carry up to 6000 marines during wartime? How many Hercs are we talking to land all of these guys? Would the Midway have enough shuttles to land them all at once? Or would they be making multiple trips? How many boots does a Herc carry anyways?

    Nephilim Plasma Weapon as Orbital Bombardment

    If the plasma weapon on the Kraken was pointed at a planet like Earth, what kind of destruction are we looking at? I would think the presence of oxygen would amplify the explosive power of the plasma burst, but I was just a grunt, so I wouldn't really know. Anybody wanna take a crack at this...

    WC1 is an Awesome Game

    I just got ahold of Wing Commander 1&2 plus all the secret missions add-ons. Before I was unable to play these games, but these ones worked so I got lucky I guess. I'm only 3 missions into WC1 (alas I have to work), but I totally dig the feel of the game. You really get the impression that...
