PlaySF magazine has put together a wacky article on Wing Commander and Christopher Blair. From the perspective of an inter-dimensional time traveler, the author jumps back in time to the year AD 2700 within the Wing Commander universe. Once there, he encounters James Taggart and the TCS Midway. The traveler learns first hand of the "century of turmoil" from the Pilgrims to the Kilrathi to the Nephilim before departing back to his own time. The GOG Privateer advertisement on the following page is a nice touch! A subheading also teases that this is "encounter one." It's a weird premise, for sure, but you can check it out for yourself here. Copies of the full magazine are available online for about $2.50 to $3.
Far from slicing through the tension as her antics often do, my pet cat nearly got the both of us killed yowling into my small craft's mouthpiece. It took many assurances before my captors accepted that I did not belong to the apparently feline 'Kilrathi' race, though the benignity of my intentions remained in doubt.
