The website of Wing Commander 3, WC4 and Freelancer screenplay writer Terry Borst has keyed us into a neat little item. In his Wing Commander area, he has a link to Matteo Bittanti's thesis, "The Technoludic Film: Images of Videogames in Films (1973-2001)."
The "sophisticated storytelling" of the Wing Commander series is now the subject of graduate school theses. Here's one (see Chapter 4).The link requires a free Gamasutra registration to view. I encourage everyone to incorporate Wing Commander into their professional and scholarly lives such as this. And for continuing updates on Mr. Borst's work, you can bookmark his site here.
