    Something new...

    You've got a typo there - it's "carrion-eater" ('carrion' meaning 'dead things/carcasses'. It can also mean 'A contemptible or worthless person' but I'm pretty sure Jakhai is using the first meaning here, though accusing someone of cannibalism would be rather a slap in the face methinks...)

    Tarsus Crashes, Five Parsecs From Home (November 11, 2022)

    Might try your local library, or if you've got a nearby university, you might check with their library instead. Even if they don't have guest access, they might be able to point you in the right direction. Kinda on your own there, I'm afraid. If you have hobbyist game shops nearby, that'd be...

    Artemis 1

    They've already announced that they will not attempt to launch again this window. Next window is September 19th.

    David Warner passes away

    I've had other folks note several other roles in Star Trek, including Gul Madred from the TNG episodes "Chain of Command, pt.1-2" (i.e. THERE ARE FOUR LIGHTS!!) as well as St. John Talbot, Federation representative to Nimbus III in Star Trek V, The Final Frontier.

    Language Lesson: Grimalkin (July 3, 2022)

    My family had a group of cats growing up; my mother named one of them Pyewacket. Good cat but he had an annoying tendency to want to play with my eye sockets claws out while I was asleep...

    Wing Kerbmander Morningstar Video Released (February 23, 2022)

    If any of y'all would like to know anything about the "making of", feel free to ask. Ultimately the video helped me score nine points out of ten in the artistic portion of the round. Scott Manley was wondering where the bits were where you were arguing with your wingmen, otherwise it might've...

    Wing Kerbmander Morningstar Video Released (February 23, 2022)

    Some context for posterity - this was my entry for the seventh week of the competition. The fighters in the combat sequence of the video were my entries from the previous six weeks. My son created the map you see in the video for the third week of the competition and I've been sneaking it and...

    Group Reading: Freedom Flight 2022

    Probably more desperate, I would say. The events of End Run and Fleet Action both had made Thrakhath look incompetent - especially the failure to achieve final victory over Earth - plus you have to remember what happened to Gilkarg and why. I imagine the Emperor was under great pressure from the...

    Comments Needed on KSP Morningstar Design (February 5, 2022)

    I'm limited to the parts available in KSP and two very specific mods. I do agree that the guns were off; those were GAU-8s (i.e. Warthog guns). Ultimately replaced them with GAU-22s for the aesthetic, though there really isn't anything in-game akin to WC, alas. I did ultimately add a pair of...

    [2020-02] Some novel character portraits

    ahkiga = "very happy" could be replaced with rakhk = "honored" then. No other changes needed to the translation.

    [2020-02] Some novel character portraits

    Ni'ha ahkiga halanma lek'kor duraiga d'aiyeshin erggar, kochirth rahus 'Ikgara Kutgaga'. The exact translation: "I am very happy to be here to tell to all of you a summary about it, the book with the name 'Sacred History (of the) People'". Whether the subject would be "honored" or not depends...

    [2020-02] Some novel character portraits

    Duls... (I was hoping for a hard one. I suppose it could also be ma'ha duls = "this is boring" or ni'ha dulsk = "I am bored", or ri'ha duls dyahu mas nai haku ri'yai talan = "You are so boring that I must tear out your throat"...)

    Wing Commander Meme of the Day: Use the Voice (November 12, 2021)

    I really need to get around to doing that translation of WC2 into Kilrathi, so we can begin working on the speech pack. Dibs on Khasra...

    Fantastic Sale Discounts Arrow Model (October 14, 2021)

    " It first appeared in 1994's "Wing Commander III: Heart of the Tiger" as a point-defense fighter with enough fuel for long-range strike missions." Still no love for Armada, I see...
