It's our first anniversary... and here's what's new.
From Hades and Chris comes a comprehensive game based index of Wing Commander's fighting spaceships. From A-Arrow to W-Wasp, they're all here... check it out.
From Hadrian we have a video of 3D Wing Commander 2 ships put to music -- it showcases some excellent modelling and rendering skills.
From Byydo comes a massive undertaking properly entitled Byydo's Happy Secret Thingie. I won't reveal its terrible secret outright, but can safely say that Wing Commander has finally taken its place among one of the staples of the Internet.
From Kolokov's diseased mind is born the sequel to the now deceased Kolokov's Wing Commander Site -- Kolokov's Starlancer and Freelancer Site. Expect Kolokov.Babes soon.
From ace, an exciting all new mailbag... keep sending letters, people.
And me? Well, I've decided to release the first part of the CIC's Wing Commander Timeline. This is the first of three segments, this one covering the pre-war era. I'm leaving to drive to UT tomorrow, and the second part (the war) will be posted when I return.
And there's also a cake...
