This is a cool issue... it features the famous org chart that eventually lead to the Wing Commander Universe Map's 'Dallas' system! Check out page 2 for the 'Dallas-Everyone Else' graphic. The August 16th reminder is advice we should all keep in mind, too - don't forget to buy your burger!
A very special thanks to Joe Garrity of the Origin Museum for making this resource available and to Electronic Arts for sending them to him in the first place!
- Where Are They Now? features the first reference to Wing Commander 3! "First and foremost, kudos go out ot Tandy Tamer Karl Kabler... What's next? He's already working on the Tandy buyer for Wing Academy and Silver Seed.... Whatever happened to Silver Seed and Wing Academy? Well, Academy is ready, but we're waiting on EAUK to get its stuff together in order for a simultaneous worldwide release... Privateer is in alpha stage and new versions are constantly hitting QA. Early reports are that the testers love it... Things to watch for: the still-unnamed Interactive Movie #1 showed some unbelievable stuff recently at product review; the new look of U8 is breathtaking; and rumor has it that Frank Savage is creating the impossible working behind closed doors on Wing 3."

Wing Commander Movie Model Rundown
Atherin has been busy recreating nearly every ship in the Wing Commander film using SketchUp. There's really not much missing - we don't see the Kilrathi Concom, Diligent or some of the small background items, but just about all of the other major stuff is there. It's a pretty nice lineup!
