We're done with the rookie missions, we're done with the rookie-advanced missions and we're done with the advanced missions. So what's left? Gauntlets! Specifically, more gauntlets, since the advanced series already had one. This is the first (of four) - it's a simple battle against increasingly tough Kilrathi fighters. One interesting note: "As the game progresses, other high scores (which will be the player’s score +15% or so) will appear after other callsigns (Hawk, Maniac, Maverick, etc.) This should motivate the player to keep going back and trying the gauntlet." This aspect actually made it into the game, but in an even more elaborate fashion... if you do well enough at the gauntlets, other wingmen will join you as the fight progresses.
These updates are thanks to John "Captain Johnny" Guentzel, who provided several CD image archives of material used by the Wing Commander Prophecy development team!
