The Fight for Books Continues Update ID

We have some additional news to share about two projects: the Mike Winterbauer art book and the ebook releases of the Wing Commander series! (There is, perhaps, some irony in the fact that we are fighting for physical releases of an ebook AND ebook releases of a physical book!) Mr. Winterbauer was kind enough to reply to my offer of support for a second campaign with some great news for Wing Commander fans:

I am going to re-launch this campaign with a lower goal and some added offers. One of the things I am adding to the offers is a beautiful Wing Commander print. The Wing Commander community has been wonderful, next time we will have more than three days notice.

Meanwhile, Baen has confirmed that the ebook release of Wing Commander: End Run (Book 2) is still in the works. In response to a request for a release date, their representative Tweeted: "Not as yet, thank you for your patience. We are working on it, rest assured." Baen has released their June schedule, which does not include End Run... so cross your fingers for July!

The lack of End Run is especially frustrating because it has long been the rarest of the physical books and because it introduces the 'book characters' who star in Fleet Action, Action Stations and False Colors. Meanwhile, False Colors is set for an April 4th release as an ebook. Preorders are not available yet, but until release it can be purchased as part of the April Baen Bundle. We will update once listings go up for the Kindle, Nook, Kobo and iBook stores.

Wing Commander Movie Model Rundown

Atherin has been busy recreating nearly every ship in the Wing Commander film using SketchUp. There's really not much missing - we don't see the Kilrathi Concom, Diligent or some of the small background items, but just about all of the other major stuff is there. It's a pretty nice lineup!

Hobbes Betrayal Crosses Over Language Barriers

Most people are familiar with the infamous video cuts that were made to fit all of the video on the Wing Commander 3 discs. Helpful sequences such as the TCN news bursts and Hobbes explanation were omitted due to space constraints. Fortunately, these are now available here at the CIC, but for a long time, the main way players could watch the Hobbes scene was to track down a copy of WC3 on the Playstation or 3DO. (2018-05-23)
