I Love New Yorktowns Update ID

The TCS Wellington from the WC Saga Prologue has received a graphical upgrade for the full release. It's come a long way over the last four years, and this should be the final design render for the classic light carrier. Hopefully most of the detail remains in the game engine. You can provide feedback at the Saga website.

For this update, we like to show our final variant of the Yorktown-class carrier. This venerable light carrier was first seen in Wing Commander 3, where the main character flew off the TCS Victory. People who have played our prologue would also remember the TCS Wellington, the carrier that played a big part in the main character’s training. The player can expect to see other Yorktown-class carriers throughout the campaign.

Wing Commander IV Storyboards - Scene 279 Update ID

Scene 279 is the famous sequence where Pliers 'discovers' the flashpak--note the design for the Lance, which is similar to the finished version but not quite as... boat-like.

These storyboard images were recovered from a backup CD containing materials belonging to Origin's web development team. They were dated November 17, 1995 and were likely planned for a never-completed web feature.

Spanish Special Operations are Extra Special
