It's time to announce the winners of our annual Web Site and Fan Project of the Year Awards! Voting is always close, but the winners have been selected. Unfortunately we can't give everyone an award, but we should thank all the nominees for helping our community.
And the winner of Wing Commander Web Site of the Year is.. Fleet Tactics!
One of the youngest nominees proved to be the most popular in 2004. Fleet Tactic's immersive atmosphere and sharp presentation won over the most votes.
The runner up for Wing Commander Web Site of the Year is.. Wedge's Wing Commander Site.
The resourceful depth of Wedge's site was useful to many WC fans once again.
And in the Fan Project of the Year category.. the winner is.. Standoff!
The Standoff team combined a popular era with the most advanced Wing Commander engine to create their project. This new experience received the most votes.
And the runner up should be no surprise.. WC Saga!
Saga's refinement of the Freespace engine was also very popular this year. We expect to be having fun with this one soon.
Honorable Mention: The Privateer Remake also came in a decent third in the Fan Projects category. Congratulations to all the Wing Commander web sites and fan projects for persisting and thriving in 2004!
Differences a True Collector Would Love
Red-Jackal recently posted a neat 1993 Privateer advertisement from Computer magazine. We've shown it off before, or so I thought, so I almost passed it by. It is a little bit sharper than the one we have in the archive though, so I decided to take a second look. (2019-02-22)

Wing Commander Enters the Retro Zone
Pix recently came across a pretty neat article in the UK magazine PC Zone. I really like it's graphical layout with the Dralthis overflying the slick text. The author is a big fan of the WC series and uses it as an example for awesome '90s games that were outside the realm of his usual fare. (2019-02-19)
