Yeah -- it was the first product line put out by X-Toys and the company didn't last too long after that (they went on to do Wild Wild West figures, then a series of Saturday Night Live toys.) Licensing Wing Commander wasn't the worst gamble; they would have been hoping Phantom Menace would make the genre red hot and buoy similar properties.
My Kilrathi were lonely and asked for some Terrans to play with. I couldn't help but feel the plight of their honorable request. Since then, there have been labors to introduce them to 6 humans, not all friendly.
