Preparations continue for the new audio adventure by Plywood Fiend. The story's dialogue has been refined, and a new narrator position has opened up. Interested Wingnuts can apply for this spot and a handful of other roles through January 21. There's been some good buzz about this project so far, and this is a relatively easy way to help get more involved in the Wing Commander community. Details on the other positions and additional background info is available at the CIC Forums here.
A recent script tweak means there's a new role of sorts to audition for if anyone's interested. Specifically a narrator for a few lines at the start of the episode.
If you know of anyone who you think might want to lend their voice to this project, would you mind directing them to this thread? I'd like to present it to as many interested persons as possible. The two female roles are in particular need of auditions. Even if I can't use someone for this episode, there'll almost certainly be a place for them in future ones. The script for episode 2 is already in the works. I'll almost certainly be posting a new casting call for that before episode 1 is released.
'The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown.' (NOTE: This is a biblical quotation. It'll make more sense with the rest of the passage.)
'We shall be bathed in our own blood and rotted flesh shall be our fare.' (Kilrathi voice optional)
Thanks to everyone who's auditioned so far; plenty of time left to do so for anyone who's interested.
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)

Check Out Spanish Wing Commander Armada
Christian Klein has found another rare and exotic Spanish Wing Commander translation by DROSoft. His last couple finds were for WC1 and the Secret Missions, but this jumps all the way forward to Armada. It would be a treat to see how they changed the Voices of War manual and how the English and Spanish versions would mesh over multiplayer. (2018-05-22)

Trusty Tarsus Takes Shape
Now that the Talon's out in the wild, DefianceIndustries' focus shifts to the Gemini Sector's other workhorse, the Tarsus. It's kind of a shame you don't actually run into them out and about, because the design is just so darn charming. Perhaps some of the allure is simply because it's your own unique home away from home out in space for so much of the game. (2018-05-21)
