Happy Birthday CIC! (August 10, 2020)

It's another wonderful milestone in CIC history. Today marks 22 years since the CIC opened its doors at wcnews.com. We're thrilled to still be here reporting the latest in Wing Commander news every day. In the background, we're always researching the rich history of WC, helping out fan projects where we can and looking forward to the next big thing in the community. The best part is that we can do it all while having fun with you! As we recently mentioned, we'll be combining our annual CIC Birthday celebration with the 30th anniversary of Wing Commander on September 26. That event will be a blast, but you don't have to wait to join the fray. Stop by the CIC chat room #Wingnut on Discord any time!







Here's a fun throwback all the way to our 13th birthday in 2011. That year we got the opportunity to combine the birthday party with an archeological trip to the University of Texas Video Game Archive. After a long day of researching Wing Commander artifacts, we were able to celebrate the anniversary together. We might have to be virtual this year, but we still can't wait for our next get together!

IIRC, I first started posting on the forums shortly before the 13th birthday; started by offering to fill a seat for TacOps and stuck around to find materials for this sci-fi RPG system I'd already built and wanted to see how hard it'd be to convert to another setting. Got a lot of good material from that birthday; still have a lot of it in my archives...
