Catch Up On Strike Commander's History Update ID

The DOS Game Club is a really cool place dedicated to gaming highlights of the '80s and '90s. Their community selects a game each month, and then they jointly play it together and discuss in their regular podcast. A recently selection was Origin's Strike Commander, and our own Bandit (LOAF) was able to participate in their episode on it. They had a super fun time! Download or stream the show here. And how much do you love DGC's website? Everything is done up in ASCII text with DOS GUI menus - fantastic!
In episode 5 of the DOS Game Club Podcast, Martijn (“Tijn”) and Florian (“rnlf”) discussed Origin System’s Strike Commander with the excellent Ben Lesnick.

Ben has been a Wing Commander fan for a long time and somewhat of an “Origin historian”, who has gotten to know many of the people involved with the development of the Wing Commander games, as well as Strike Commander and other games by Chris Roberts and Origin Systems. He helps to run the Wing Commander CIC fan site over at wcnews.com and is currently working with Chris Roberts on Star Citizen.

Spanish Special Operations are Extra Special

After seeing the Spanish WC2 that Christian Klein recently acquired, the next natural question was whether DROSoft had also localized the Special Operations.
