Hey all, Raptor here.
HTL continues with the third and final chapter to Scraps Of Honour 11, "Till Death Do Us Party". As you saw in the last chapter, Colonel Onslow had put down the near riot at the Valentine's Day party with typical Border Worlds tact and subtlety, or rather the lack thereof. In addition to wrecking the surroundings, the brawl's left what was meant to be a friendly bonding exercise between the Confed and Border Worlds pilots in shambles. However, there are still a few people who are determined to salvage what they can from the party, their last chance to relax before the Nephilim arrive. This chapter picks up from there, and is written by Nick "Chaeronea" Deane. Please send any and all comments to him at firstname.lastname@example.org, not to me. The story is at:
Doesn't anybody ever do up their flightsuits?
Wing Commander Prophecy gives you unequaled visual excitement with these new features: a new space combat engine, a new terrifying alien menace, and new spectacular graphics and soundtrack. With return appearances by Blair, Maniac, and Rachel, Wing Commander Prophecy opens a new trilogy in the Wing Commander universe packing more punch than any other space combat game out there. Wing Commander Prophecy is the ultimate in sci-fi combat simulations. Blast into the future today!Note that this was one of the old Prophecy preview paragraphs, and decisions on future Wing Commander games for the GBA are not yet final. First person to report on the listing of the game at GameStop wins a cookie!

Someone told Casey to pose like someone in a fashion show. They didn't expect him to pose like a woman.

Casey returns from a mission and checks his flight stats.
My compliments also go to the crew of Unknown Enemy for beautifully editing new Heads-Up Displays for the craft you fly throughout the game. The HUD for Border Worlds craft is, of course, impressive and in keeping with the supposed simplicity and age of their equipment, but another truly remarkable item is the HUD for the various Kilrathi ships flown throughout the game (pictured to the left).
As I said in my post on the HTL forum, we had to stop publishing HTL chapters on the CIC because the Archives hadn't been updated for a while. I *really* didn't want to end HTL's association with the CIC though, not after working with them to publish HTL chapters for over an year. After a little amateur web page building with the latest version of MS Word though (thank you, Mr Gates!), I've figured out a way to put together basic webpages for the chapters without taking too much time away from writing and co-ordinating. The pages are nothing fancy, but they get the job done. The upshot is that you'll be able to enjoy your regular dose of Border Worlds propaganda....er, HTL stories, at the CIC once again.You can read chapter 144 here.
HTL continues with the second part of Scraps of Honour 11, "Till Death Do Us Party". In the last chapter, the Confederation and Border Worlds reserve forces had thrown a "getting to know ya" Valentine's Day party for their pilots and crews. Everyone is looking forward to a great time, all the more so because this will be their last chance to cut loose before the Nephilim jump in. This chapter is written by Nick "Chaeronea" Deane, so please send any and all comments to him at email@example.com, not to me.
Here's a picture of Casey with his best friend: the bottle.
Casey forgot to zip up!
Polishing the insignias?
Wipe that smirk off your Lieutenant!
When Wing Commander III came out everyone complained about how there were no promotions. Well, this is why! Because they knew they'd screw them up! (Movies are filmed in the order that actors are available, not in the order that they appear in the theater... so having Casey be a second lieutenant in some parts and a first lieutenant in others lead to the inevitable rank pin errors).

Patch for existing users who can't use the fiction viewer:
Origin probably didn't remember when creating Wing Commander Prophecy, but Iceman had another child. Lance's half-sister Julia was rescued from a Kilrathi slave ship during the course of Secret Missions 2.
Lieutenant Casey poses next to the man who taught him everything he knows about acting: a step-ladder.
