Today in the year 2629, the Iason suffered its famous and fateful encounter with the Kilrathi destroyer K'rath'kan. First Contact results in the complete destruction of the Iason and loss of her crew. Though this event brought the new alien menace into the Confederation's collective consciousness, interaction between the species had been occurring for some time on the fringes of known space. Of particular note is the work of anthropologist Dr. C.L. Kohl, who was captured and executed by Kilrathi priestesses in 2621 while secretly observing the Sivar-Eshrad ceremony on Ghorah Khar.
Obee reports that his latest album, Anker, is now available and can be downloaded here. Note that this is a German album that doesn't have anything to do with Wing Commander, much like the official soundtrack to Wing Commander Prophecy!
The Terran Confederation expands exploration and colonization efforts and penetrates Vega Sector. On 2629.105 the exploration ship Iason encounters a spacecraft of unknown origin. Commander Jedora Andropolos transmits an international wideband, non-verbal greeting designed by the Committee for
Interaction with Alien Intelligences. Andropolos keeps Iason’s guns off-line for the TCN-recommended
20 minutes and awaits a response from the alien vessel. Finally, without warning, the unidentified ship opens fire with full lasers, utterly destroying Iason and all hands.

While establishing footholds in the recently explored Krat’na Sector, the destroyer K’rath’kan detects an intruder. Leader Brath’kar nar Caxki reports that the unidentified ship is attempting to neutralize his shields with wide-band radiation. When the enemy fails to leave the area of trespass after three-eighths of an hour, the destroyer opens its guns to eliminate the threatening vessel.
So here is the album now: "Anker" (which is German for anchor) is now downloadable as a digital release. Like the single, the 10-track album is up for "pay what you want" on http://evanfreyer.bandcamp.com .
Obee (or whatever ;))
