    Orion Launch Successful! (December 5, 2014)

    Here is my shot of the liftoff of the Delta 4 Heavy carrying Orion on its first test flight. Not exactly the best photo out there, but hey, I was 9 MILES away from the pad, so cut me some slack :) High-res version here. https://www.flickr.com/photos/aviatorvic/15972547915/ Vic.

    Gorgeous Image Caps Big Week For Space Exploration (September 21, 2014)

    Cool photo! Here is my take. This was my first attempt at photographing a night launch. Not too shabby I think. https://www.flickr.com/photos/aviatorvic/15305384136/ Vic.

    Striking Station Scene Sets Stage (September 2, 2014)

    Wow... amazing work. I recently started taking SolidWorks classes and realized how much work goes into making these kind of designs., so seeing things like this just blows my mind. Great work!

    Another WC inspired game

    Guys, I tried searching the forum for this, and apparently it hasn't been discussed before. There is a new space game under development, and its creator mentions WC as one of its inspirations. It looks like it's still in very early stages of development, but anyway, here is the website...

    Gato Get George's New Album! (August 24, 2012)

    What an appropriate name for a band created by a former WC music composer. As you probably know, Gato 6 means Cat 6 in Spanish. Also the first song of the album is called Eye of the Cat, the second is called Cat Get it!, and the eight is called Cat's Claw. I can close my eyes and hear this...

    Wing Commander II on G4TV Top 100 Games of All Time

    I agree that the list is awful. No Dune II? No SimCity? No Falcon 4? No Monkey Island? No Tomb Raider? No Need For Speed? No Fifa? But anyway, this being the repository of everything Wing Commander, I though it was worth posting. Regards, Vic.

    Wing Commander II on G4TV Top 100 Games of All Time

    (Something Like)Trivia

    Hey LOAF, Sorry for the late response. I realized my question was not specific enough, giving plenty of room for interpretation. For example, I considered the F-22 as valid, but as you mentioned, that plane didn’t really existed when WC1 came out. From your list, I have two fighters...
