    David Warner passes away

    Well, yeah, but with how long he's been active a full listing would take a while, and unnecessary when IMDb covers it well enough. I really do need to get out of the habit of showing up only when people die. :p

    David Warner passes away

    Veteran actor David Warner, who's been in a bunch of stuff including Star Trek 6: The Undiscovered Country (Chancellor Gorkon), Tron (Ed Dillinger and Sark), a bunch of voices for games and cartoons, and more, passed away at 80 years old from "cancer-related illness"...

    Fictional starship size comparisons

    Saw this posted on FB, and of course I had to share it. A size comparison of various spacecraft in fiction, on screen, in books, and in video games. Around the 2:10 mark and 4:00 mark there are craft that should be familiar to those following Star Citizen. It did not, however, include any WC...

    Are there other "space carrier" novels out there with not too much "weird" elements but instead grounded military sci-fi?

    Without commenting specifically on post-buyout Star Wars, remakes/reworks don't magically make the originals disappear. :P

    Razorfist plays Wing Commander (1st game)

    While flipping through Youtube for other stuff, I came across a recording YT ranter Razorfist did of playing through the first WC game a few days ago. He is more than a little free with foul language, so NSFW, but here is the 4h31m video. (I used a timestamp in the link to get past the "please...

    A giant of SF has passed

    Earlier today, Jerry Pournelle died. By other reports, he had laid down for a nap, and passed away. I was minorly annoyed at myself for missing him at Dragoncon this year, but now I'm really kicking myself. :( Requiescat in pace, Jerry.

    Wing Commander Books on Kindle or Ebooks

    And in further news, the WC4 novelization is on the e-book publishing schedule for January 3rd of next year. (And yes, I dropped them a line about the "Captain" in the description.)

    Wing Commander Books on Kindle or Ebooks

    Further following up on the WC e-book front: This weekend at Dragoncon after the Baen Traveling Road Show panel (talk about Baen's recent and upcoming releases, including artwork for the covers with and without the text of the final product), I talked with Toni Weisskopf (Editor in Chief at...

    Wing Commander Books on Kindle or Ebooks

    The bundles in general tend to be a good deal, especially if you don't already own the works, with a mix of new and older books in a 6-book bundle. Be aware that they're time-limited, however, IIRC based on physical release scheduling of the included books. Once you buy it you can access the...

    Wing Commander Books on Kindle or Ebooks

    It should be noted that the partial versions, both the fractional releases prior to the listed date and the free sample chapters after it's fully available for purchase, are usually of a version from before the final edit and may contain assorted typographical and grammatical errors. The version...

    Do any confederation fighters/bombers have copilots?

    IIRC, Pliers also mentions about Blair having to make due with an auto-gunner for the rear turret of his fighter, due to crew shortages.

    Wing Commander Books on Kindle or Ebooks

    Done. No response yet to the bugging about the others (which included information above, re FA), of course, as she's a busy person, what with being the Editor in Chief (or whatever her formal title, I forget offhand) and all.

    Wing Commander Books on Kindle or Ebooks

    (Yeah, necromancy, but *points to "Admin" badge* it's a privilege of rank. ;) ) Not entirely sad now. Freedom Flight will be available in e-book format from Baen in July. (I am bugging Toni about the others, for the record. :p )

    WC aces Ships

    There is no formal NATO designation specific to corvettes, and hasn't been in a while. You'll just have to suck it up. :P

    WC aces Ships

    I was the creator of the Halsey class corvette for the UBW. While I don't have the somewhat crude 3-view image I did up of the ship for inclusion on the Aces ship database, I do have the DOC file (standard format, Wordpad will open it though with some garbage at the top that doesn't affect...
