Starman noticed that this weekend's BBC ONE schedule has a special treat for Wing Commander fans in Europe. The WC Movie will be showing on Sunday morning at 12:15 am, shortly after midnight. It runs about 95 minutes in length until 1:50 am. The movie didn't get a proper theatrical release in Britain, and only got a DVD ins stores recently, so major broadcasts like this are neat.

The Wing Commander Saga mod team has posted a 'behind the scenes' Christmas update for fans eager to see the game in action. Here's what they say:
One of our goals in creating Wing Commander Saga is to help players feel like a tiny part of a much larger fleet. Combat will take place on both a small- and large-scale basis. Capital ship battles and torpedo strikes will make prominent appearances throughout the game. We've included two small video clips to give a feeling of what they will be like.
The movies are a bit dark, but they do look like fun. The first cicles a WC3-style cruiser during a battle and the second shows an in-cockpit torpedo run on a Kilrathi light destroyer.
