This is a fairly quiet issue of Point of Origin. It includes an extensive bio of Mike Harrison, who wrote the Wing Commander I & II Ultimate Strategy Guide... but the most interesting note may not have anything to do with WC. A picture of a VR helmet includes a caption which says that such technology might be used with Ultima X, a future Strike Commander or 'Bounty Hunter'. What's Bounty Hunter?
- Of Books and Board Games has some reaction from the recent ORIGINS convention: "(One quick preview: when asked what comes to mind when they think of ORIGIN, by far the three most common responses were 'Ultima,' 'Wing Commander' and 'quality games.')"
- Misc. has a brief announcement of what will be Origin's last independent project: "The two new CD SKU's, the Wing 2 Deluxe Edition and Wing/Underworld will also be hitting store shelves at the same time [next month]."
- Dear Point Man has some sales numbers for Special Operations 2: "How about sales figures for some of our products (a la SO2, U7 and Underworld)? Here you go, These figures reflect Underworld, U7, their clue books and Special Ops 2 (19,000). The number is units sold to the retail channel through July 31."
