Joe Garrity of the Origin Museum recently made an exciting discovery among the hundreds of CDs recovered from Mythic--a 1995 backup disc belonging to an Origin webmaster. The disk contains small treasures for Ultima, Crusader and Wing Commander fans... but one of the most interesting is a collection of several hundred scanned Wing Commander IV storyboards, apparently planned at one time to be included with the WC4 website!
Unfortunately the resolution is very low, as they were intended for the web in 1995-6... but you can still follow the action, read the stage directions and take note of how characters and ships were drawn! The first is Scene 13, which show's Blair's entrance to the bar on Nephele and his initial conversation with the barkeep. Note the Luke Skywalker robes and the cool eye patch! These files are dated December 14, 1995--all others are dated November 27 (so all were made before the game shipped).
