It was early 2001 when we were eagerly awaiting the final installment in Peter Telep's Wing Commander movie-based novel trilogy - Pilgrim Truth. Because of numerous delays, an outline of the novel was released providing a chapter-by-chapter synopsis of what would happen in the new novel. At the time, we stored the file on a lousy free web site because of bandwidth issues. Sadly, the novel was cancelled by its would-be publisher despite being completed, however the synopsis hasn't been forgotten. We now have it back on our own server in its original MS Word format. You can download the file here.
On a related note, some of the rights regarding the WC movie will be changing in 2004, which may allow the release of Pilgrim Truth and various things. We'll be renewing our efforts to get the book published should the circumstances allow it.
Just kidding. Next up in our series of polls is the Wing Commander III era. This time the biggest gun in the universe takes on Tin Can Sally. In our last poll the TCS Concordia (62%) crushed the TCS Tarawa (16%). We'll see who wins this round. We archive our old polls here.
It's been a month or two since the last new GBA SP color, so we thought Nintendo might be slowing down. To no one's surprise, they have announced another color though. This time the Starlight Gold color. It appears this one will be a Japan Toys R Us exclusive though.
Currently Fry's Electronics has the best deal on Prophecy Advance here.
Hobbes Betrayal Crosses Over Language Barriers
Most people are familiar with the infamous video cuts that were made to fit all of the video on the Wing Commander 3 discs. Helpful sequences such as the TCN news bursts and Hobbes explanation were omitted due to space constraints. Fortunately, these are now available here at the CIC, but for a long time, the main way players could watch the Hobbes scene was to track down a copy of WC3 on the Playstation or 3DO. (2018-05-23)

Check Out Spanish Wing Commander Armada
Christian Klein has found another rare and exotic Spanish Wing Commander translation by DROSoft. His last couple finds were for WC1 and the Secret Missions, but this jumps all the way forward to Armada. It would be a treat to see how they changed the Voices of War manual and how the English and Spanish versions would mesh over multiplayer. (2018-05-22)

Trusty Tarsus Takes Shape
Now that the Talon's out in the wild, DefianceIndustries' focus shifts to the Gemini Sector's other workhorse, the Tarsus. It's kind of a shame you don't actually run into them out and about, because the design is just so darn charming. Perhaps some of the allure is simply because it's your own unique home away from home out in space for so much of the game. (2018-05-21)
