Tomorrow evening SciFi.com will be holding its Battlestar Commander Trivia Contest. At 9:00 and 9:30 pm Eastern there will be combined competitions involving Battlestar Galactica and Wing Commander. The grand prize is some big Battlestar book, but hopefully there will be some WC things too. For more information, check their Mindprove page here.
In a CNET article, Mark Asher has posted some recent sales figures for Starlancer. Although his source, PC Data, is renowned for its inaccuracy (they only cover 50-75% of North American retailers), the numbers are still a disaster. Starlancer has sold some 30,000 units according to them, so at best that's a total of 60,000 for the US. Tachyon and Freespace 2 have sold equally bad, if not worse. It seems that people stopped buying space sims after Wing Commander Prophecy, which had sold some 750,000 copies this time last year. Thanks to ATFW.
