We've got a disappointing update on the Wing Commander music that was scheduled to be performed in October by the Austin Symphony Orchestra. Event management decided it was not similar enough in theme to the Superheroes selections on the program, and so the WC portion has been removed. The good news is that the arrangement may be included in a future concert. Veteran composer George Oldziey is actively pursuing an alternative showing, and we're very appreciative of how dedicated he is to this endeavor! We'll have more information as soon as it's available - stay tuned, Wingnuts!
I am of course deeply disappointed of the decision, as I finished the orchestration in plenty of time, and had the score and parts prepared specifically for the October concert. I apologize to all WC fans around the country who were planning on attending the show.

FekLeyrTarg has released his mini Wing Commander fan film. It takes the form of a recruiting commercial that could be used during the Kilrathi War. There's a nice mix of assets here from a Privateer-style building to Sabre fighters to the hefty Rigakh class cruiser. (2018-06-19)
WCSO Model Upgrade Pack Adds Comm Relay Station
DefianceIndustries has completed the first large scale base for the Secret Ops Model Upgrade Pack. This is a cool design, and the tiny little flight deck is a nice touch. In addition to making it much more detailed and gorgeous to look at, he's also significantly amped up the destroyability. (2018-06-18)
Happy Father's Day
Many countries celebrate Father's Day today, and we know a lot of Wing Commander fans have recently become dads out there. My little one just turned 16 months old, and I'm happy to that see she grabs a controller and starts pushing buttons whenever she gets a chance.The CIC is more of a news site than a blog, but it's also a community hub more than anything, and it feels right to share this personal story with the community.

The Attack Begins... Soon
There's tons of great Wing Commander fan projects out there, but it's not every day that we get a teaser for a new one. FekLeyrTarg has had a hand in quite a few different endeavors over the years, and his latest will be a new short fan film. Projects like these have been proposed a number of times over the years, but we haven't seen very many come to fruition. (2018-06-16)
