    donning the flamesuit, or my review of this series

    Hello everyone out there. Spoilers ahead. Perhaps it's time I reveal how I found out about Wing Commander in the first place. When I was in middle school, I found a WC book in the school library. It was the movie novel. Needless to say, I watched the movie soon after, and loved it...

    I just realised...

    Idea! This could be a fanfiction horror story: two confed pilots get captured, and one is forced to cook the other for his new master. O_o Anways, until you made this post, I had no idea the Kilrathi ate their captives. Now I know why if you are captured in Standoff, the screen...

    Interesting realization about Super Wing Commander

    :eek: When I was watching the Super Wing Commander intro on Youtube, a realization occured to me. Paladin looks and sounds like a Caucasian version of "Demoman" from Team Fortress 2! I found this funny, that's all.

    I'm starting a new fan project

    Thanks yeah, the game will be a shooter but it won't be quite like raiden. You won't be able to put up a "wall of bullets" so to speak with your fighter. The ships will retain their game abilities, and the entire game will have a strategy to it. If you want to help me with sprites, the ones...

    Morningstar guns break.

    I've recently noticed that if you cycle through the guns of the morningstar using g, the leftmost gun's particle bullets start shooting a little bit above the others. simply hit g a few times and fire to see the effect.

    Duke Nuke 'em reference in ep. 5?

    I was playing a mission in episode 5 today when I heard a pilot from Sierra squadron say: "I'm gonna rip off your head and crap down your neck!" Is this an intentional reference to the game "Duke Nuke 'em?"

    Wing Commander Movie Ships (August 11, 2009)

    Wait a minute... In the ship's section of the CIC, you can see the different games underneath each side's name. I can see, for example, WC1 through WC4 links for the confed and Kilrathi ships. Shouldn't there be a "movie" link under these for purposes of these images?

    What is considered contraband in this game?

    All I know is that transporting captured pilots and this illegal drug called "Brilliance", causes confed pilots to announce you have contraband and start shooting. since I want to be a "law abiding citizen" in my game, I want to know what else is considered contraband so that I don't have to...

    WCP ejection pod in real life!

    If they do make this pod: I sure hope they make more planes with this ejection pod, because it doesn't hurt your spine severely when you eject. Most pilots must retire nowadays after a few ejections because of the damage to their spine.

    Prank in ships database?

    I was in the ships database under the privateer section, and found this wing commander trading card under several entries: Is this a prank by one of the members of the CIC? Or is it just to indicate that there is no information yet for...

    Idea for a Wing Commander flash cartoon (WC1 era)

    I understand Most people here started out with WC3 or 4, so they wouldn't get the joke. I first used dosbox to run the first Wing Commander game, that's why the joke is funny to me.

    Civi voices in Ep 5

    Well.... If a poor little trainee girl gets blown up and is not as hardened by the war as Angel was, she's gonna scream when she dies. Still, the High-As-A-Kite hippie tarsus captain's death is funnier: "Hey man, what's that blinking red light mean man? Aw crap!"

    Dissecting the Kilrathi Language

    What about the fighter names? What could the names of the ships possibly mean in the Kilrathi language? I have a theory for some of the WC1 ships: thi - could possible refer to some kind of animal, for this purpose we will use tiger. Sal - young Dral - lesser Jal - greater so therefore...

    Idea for a Wing Commander flash cartoon (WC1 era)

    In case you don't get the joke... This is a joke on the death sequence in wing commander 1. Blair would throw his arms over his face, and then his fighter would spin out and explode.
