Maj. Striker has completed a new 3d animation for Wing Commander fans to check out his latest models in action.
Initially I was going to try to tell a story but all things have their limitations so this wound up being a brief clip of a couple of scimitars tangling with two Dralthi in good ole fashion space combat. I feel its a little better than my last animation and I certainly learned a lot doing this one. I love the WC community and although it's not much, this is my way of trying to give back to the community...by creating a few clips for those who can't get enough WC goodness. :)
It clocks in at three and a half minutes and 35 megs. It includes voices from the games to narrate. I really hope people eventually do turn something like this into a full story or movie someday. You can grab the clip here.
News of Derek Smart's intent to acquire the Freespace license prompted us to put up an emergency poll last week. According to the results not everyone is familiar with the Freespace series, but many of our visitors are carefully optimistic.
Our new poll asks what your favorite non-Wing Commander space-sim series is. Poll suggestions are always welcome and can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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!
