Shiryu has put together an electronic techno track inspired by the Wing Commander movie. Pilgrim clocks in at about 8 megs. If you like that one, there's a faster and more upbeat remix called Pilgrim Redux that he sent along for us too.
It's just one of my many hobbies, music making. I just saw (and loved) the movie for the first time last year, and that's when I used the samples and made the songs, just like that. Freelancer and Babylon 5 were like that too. If I hear something noteworthy of putting on a music, or I think a music should be in a particular part of a game, I do my best to put what was in my head to reality.
PeteyG noticed that TheForce.net just conducted a full interview with Mark Hamill. It touches on a lot of his recent comic book related work and the parody film he's just written, directed and starred in. Hamill is always excited and fun to listen to, and that even comes through in interview transcripts. It begins here.
MH: Well, I mean, originally I was hoping that I could just direct this and not have to be in it, but they really wanted me to be for obvious reasons. I'm pragmatic about that. If it helps the project for me to be in it of course I will, but if it is a situation where they don't want me in it, but want me to direct, that would be very appealing. Then you could just concentrate on the one thing.
Just kidding. Today actually marks fifteen years of continuous daily WC news updates. The last day we missed was May 25, 2003, short of the occasional technical issue that may have slightly delayed the daily news a bit. (2018-05-26)

Wing Commander Movie Model Rundown
Atherin has been busy recreating nearly every ship in the Wing Commander film using SketchUp. There's really not much missing - we don't see the Kilrathi Concom, Diligent or some of the small background items, but just about all of the other major stuff is there. It's a pretty nice lineup!
