    Kilrathi in 1986?

    I ran across this purely by accident, but I was looking through some of the concept artwork for the film Willow, and I noticed a few pictures that had a 'Kilrathi' feel to them:

    A surprising Wing Commander music similarity.

    I received my copy of the Wing Commander Orchestral Recording Project the other day, and I love it. However, listening to the arrangements, I was startled to notice some musical subtlety that had gone over my head with the original game MIDI files. That is, the strange similarity of the WC3...

    Our Enemies: Space Tigers

    I found a fairly recent entry on Future War Stories about the abundance and nature of hostile feline aliens in fiction. Needles to say, the Kilrathi get a lengthy mention.

    Help put some Wing Commander squadrons in Robotech!

    Palladium Books and Ninja Division are making a new table-top tactical RPG, and are offering fans the chance to design a squadron and fighter markings, and I think this would make an excellent opportunity for some Terran Confederation fighter squadrons to cameo in the U.N. SPACY! Use the...

    Origins of the Banshee II?

    I was looking over my collection of ship pictures again and I noticed something rather interesting: Look at the UBW Banshee II fighter. Now, if you remove the side pylons from the wings, and replace the lower pylon with a gatling neutron cannon, you almost have a CF-117 Rapier...

    Armed Conflict Between Nations: What is it good for?

    It’s stated in Action Stations that as of AD 2634 it had been a century (give or take a few years) since Confed was at war (with whom it is not stated, but could this be some sort of spat with the Free Republic of the Landreich? Possibly a war of independence?) In that time, Confed has grown lax...

    Confederation spacecraft designations.

    Alright, I have FINNALY ended my 5 year campaign of lurking around the flight deck and have decided to make my voice heard. Please be gentle.:eek: I’ve always been a sucker for details, so it should be no surprise that when if comes to wing Commander (hereafter lovingly referred to as WC) I...
