The sketch artist who drew up scenes for the Wing Commander Movie has posted two of his cool storyboards. Andrew Wildman has a Wordpress Site with daily musings and some of his professional work. The sequences here appear to picture shots on the Diligent and of the Tiger's Claw's flight deck decompressing. Note that these flow from top to bottom and then left to right.

Space Sim Central has begun collecting information on Miner Wars, a new space sim targeted for release on Windows and XBox Live Arcade. It's built around both single and multiplayer gameplay and includes fully destructible environments. As the title might suggest, pilots operate and upgrade space ships in a vast asteroid field. Some of the rocks are as large as small moons, and players have the ability to mine, bore tunnels and explore. Find more information and gameplay movies at the Miner Wars website.
Miner Wars is a 6DOF underground and space shooter played in a fully destructible environment and is a combination of single player story game and MMO.
As a player, you operate an advanced mining ship in an open world asteroid belt area. You dig kilometers of tunnels, harvest the ore, travel the solar system, fight your enemies and discover mysterious alien secrets.
Gameplay is led by an epic story and is a combination of a single/multi-player game, cooperative, or you against everyone.
The story will introduce you to many types of missions: rescue, exploration, revenge, base defense, theft, transportation, stealth, search and destroy, pure harvesting, racing or just flying around and destroying everything you see.
High quality rendering and special effects, realistic physics, unique 'destructible engine', and game area with no borders make this game a real life experience.
