LeHah found a neat early pairing of two favorite Wing Commander actors. Years before they played Captain Eisen and Hawk in Wing Commander 4, Jason Bernard and Chris Mulkey starred together in an episode of the 1980s television show "Beauty and the Beast." This is a pretty cool find - they look so young!
Often, we get people on here who mention they've spotted some of their favorite Wing Commander stars on TV shows, movies and commercials. But how often can we say that we've seen two of them share the same scene outside of our favorite gaming series?
Some of us older folks might remember the late-80s fantasy series Beauty And The Beast starring Ron Perlman and Linda Hamilton. Season One featured an episode where a deaf/mute girl witnessed some dirty cops killing one of their own. Two of these cops? None other than Jason Bernard (Eisen) and Chris Mulkey (Hawk)!
Today we have an updated variant of the Piranha HUD -- they've added the original Arrow struts and moved the eject button.
These updates are thanks to John "Captain Johnny" Guentzel, who provided several CD image archives of material used by the Wing Commander Prophecy development team!
