Vincent 'Lancer' Formosa has made up some graphics for all you SecretOps fans that just scream cool... the artwork is designed for people who've made their own SO CD's, to be put in the CD cases! (And hey, if I had a CD burner I'd have made myself a SO CD a long time ago...). Anyway, here's what Lancer has to say:
"S1 is the back cover, s2 is the front cover. Both are saved at 2X the normal jewel case size so people can shrink them down if they prefer or make a cd writing programme squidge it down to size. S2 is sized on the basis of a cover peice being 12.2 cm W x 12 cm H in size S1 is sized on the basis of a back piece being 15.1cm W x 11.8cm H in size. Both of these files are doubled up from this size basis. Even the side peices for the jewel case are there for people to see what they got if it's on a rack."So check 'em out below, even if you can't burn a copy of SO they still look damned impressive...
Spanish Special Operations are Extra Special
After seeing the Spanish WC2 that Christian Klein recently acquired, the next natural question was whether DROSoft had also localized the Special Operations. The answer is yes, and it comes in an awesome double pack just like the Spanish Secret Missions! Both are in the same box with the game summaries translated side-by-side on the rear of the packaging.

Join The Terran Confederation Space Force!
FekLeyrTarg has released his mini Wing Commander fan film. It takes the form of a recruiting commercial that could be used during the Kilrathi War. There's a nice mix of assets here from a Privateer-style building to Sabre fighters to the hefty Rigakh class cruiser. (2018-06-19)
WCSO Model Upgrade Pack Adds Comm Relay Station
DefianceIndustries has completed the first large scale base for the Secret Ops Model Upgrade Pack. This is a cool design, and the tiny little flight deck is a nice touch. In addition to making it much more detailed and gorgeous to look at, he's also significantly amped up the destroyability. (2018-06-18)
Happy Father's Day
Many countries celebrate Father's Day today, and we know a lot of Wing Commander fans have recently become dads out there. My little one just turned 16 months old, and I'm happy to that see she grabs a controller and starts pushing buttons whenever she gets a chance.The CIC is more of a news site than a blog, but it's also a community hub more than anything, and it feels right to share this personal story with the community.

The Attack Begins... Soon
There's tons of great Wing Commander fan projects out there, but it's not every day that we get a teaser for a new one. FekLeyrTarg has had a hand in quite a few different endeavors over the years, and his latest will be a new short fan film. Projects like these have been proposed a number of times over the years, but we haven't seen very many come to fruition. (2018-06-16)
