It's been quite a while since we last checked in with Wing Commander and Pilgrim Stars author Peter Telep... and he's been busy! Telep has authored two three-book military fiction series in the last three years... which you may have missed, since he's been writing under the pen names P.W. Storm and Pete Callahan.
The first series is "Force 5 Recon", which follows the adventures of a modern USMC Force Recon. The books are: Deployment: Pakistan, Deployment: North Korea and Deployment: Phillipines. The second is "Armored Corps", which follows an American tank battalion through a possible war between North and South Korea. They are: Armored Corps, Engage and Destroy and Attack By Fire.
... but wait, there's more! Telep has two more similar series' in the works. The next is called "The Mercenaries," and the first novel, Blood Diamonds, will be available in December! You can learn about these books and more at his attractive new website here.
Bob McDob has found an interesting anime music video which puts the Wing Commander movie's audio over animated footage from the Macross TV series. Here's what the creator, SulliMike23, has to say:
I simply decided to use the Trailer for the Wing Commander movie for this one. For the cast, it goes as follows.
I've always wondered if you could set the audio to the 1999 movie to the animated characters from the original game -- this seems to indicate that it might turn out well. You can download "Macross Commander" here (16.9 mb) in WMV format.
Lt. Christopher Blair-Rick Hunter (Robotech)
Lt. Todd "Maniac" Marshall-Isamu Dyson (Macross Plus)
Lt. Commander "Angel" Devereax-Lisa Hayes (Robotech)
Commodore James "Paladin" Taggart-Captain Glovel (Robotech)
I've gotten the video and the enemies shown in all three series will represent the Kilrathi. There will be some parts where the lip sync will be off cue, but it'll be worth it.
