    Wing Commander Jazz CD Coming Along, Looking For Cover Art (May 10, 2018)

    Threw together a couple of quick mockups.

    WC4 Mod For Homeworld 2 In The Works (June 5, 2006)

    Never played Homeworld, so I'm more or less building this idea off of other RTS like Star Trek: Armada. Apologies if there's no comparable setup in Homeworld (or if anything like this was covered in the last 92 pages). Perhaps Confed could have a unit who is basically a Pilgrim scientist. Said...

    A Localization Interrogation (November 15, 2017)

    My CDs were silver-ish, with (if I can remember right) the Vampire in purple, the Piranha in orange, and the Shrike in green. Also, the Prophecy box opened to a shot of the Midway flying towards the "camera", with several fighters flying over her in escort. At the bottom were pics and brief...

    Wing Commander Prophecy: Secret Ops Model Update Pack

    Star vote from me as well. Had a couple of other ideas as to how the star might look, so I tried to make a quick little mockup. I think I'm more partial to the left one (same color as stripe, gap to fit the circle and the point of the star)

    Custom Wing Commander Arcade Controller

    Can I just go ahead and nominate this for Fan Project of the Year now?

    Wing Commander ship design inspirations

    That would be the planet killer from the Star Trek TOS episode "The Doomsday Machine"

    Another source of WC novels/guides

    Not sure if this one is known to the masses, but I just came across the site, and was quite surprised at their selection. Thinking it was a long shot, I did a search for Wing Commander, and promptly found a rather decent selection of novels and some of the strategy guides. The...

    Nephilim Remodels

    In my defense, having been up for 32 hours, I'd somehow gotten it in my head that Dralthi was pronounced Dralth-Eye, not Dralth-Eee. I think I was going off of Rakti Blood Drinker's taunt in WC2 (where he pronounces his name as Rak-Tee). Could we go with "It's not flown by Drakhai / And not...

    Nephilim Remodels

    "When it's like a Dralthi But not shaped like a pie That's a Moray." ...I feel like I should apologize for that.

    Check Out The Krantor... Or Maybe Raptorant? (March 2, 2016)

    I guess Murphy's Law says we'll be running out of jokes right when we need them most.

    Check Out The Krantor... Or Maybe Raptorant? (March 2, 2016)

    These puns are definitely shifting the Paradigm.

    [SPOILERS] Star Wars movie thread... [Don't read this thread if you haven't seen the movie yet]

    Reaching back into the old EU for a moment... When Luke sets up the new Jedi Academy on Yavin 4, the spirit of a fallen Jedi-turned-Sith named Exar Kun who has been on Yavin for millenia works to corrupt Luke's students. He is said to manifest as a "dark man", and causes quite a bit of havoc...

    New 3D Thread

    With the seven engine ports, my first thought was the Rigakh class cruiser. Maybe she's a competitive design that lost out to the Rigakh, or ended up used in secondary systems instead of on the front lines. Or, if you do want to go smaller, she's the Rigakh's destroyer cousin. For comparison...

    Hellcat cockpit in the WC2 style

    I actually kind of like the idea of the weaker weaponry. Gives off a vibe, when combined with the higher speeds, of this being a scout/recon bird, with just enough firepower to discourage pursuit. The main defense would be getting the hell out of town. Fan-fiction time: The Arrow we see in...

    Well, that looks downright awesome.

    Service entry dates for Confed fighters

    I think you're right, as I believe there were a pair of Ferrets involved in the TCS Iason being destroyed. I hadn't realized a lot of the info originated (at least, canonically), in Star*Solider - figured it must have been in some of the novels, since I've never managed to pick them up. Much...

    Service entry dates for Confed fighters

    The designations do tend to follow a progression through the games, but there are some oddballs. The F-designations go from the F-36 Hornet on up through the F-110 Wasp, and yet the Arrow is the F-27. We see only one P-type (the P-64 Ferret), so that means that Ferrets are some of the newest...

    Lovely Bearcat, Klavs. I actually just played WC4 for the first time just a couple of months ago, and made sure that I followed the path to steal the Bearcats. Had to see what all the fuss was about. Also, I spent some time looking through the other videos you have up on Vimeo - amazing work...

    Original Wing Commander Artist Here.

    Having just spotted that Fralthi in the background of the death animation, I can honestly say that I never realized that the space background was actually based around what was happening in-mission - I always thought it was just a generic background, since it would just be seen for a half a...
