CIC ChatZoner Wulf spotted an article about WC in the current issue of Entertainment Weekly. It also features an interview with Chris Roberts. Here's a quick quote:
The sci-fi Wing Commander series, inspired by Star Wars (Hey, they wrote it, not me), and starring actors like Mark Hamill and Malcolm McDowell, imposed cinematic narrative on games.
'My games were mostly about stories and characters,' says Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts.'The inspiration for Wing Commander was "What if instead of being about trying to get a high score, it's about trying to finish a story?" '
Be afraid.. be very afraid. No, not of Raptor, the story.
Hey all, Raptor here.
HTL continues with a spooky little tale called "Harvest", featuring a Border
Worlds pilots you might recognise, one Troy "Catscratch" Carter. This story
was originally intended to be part of our Halloween special, and was sent
out on the Aces list in time for the holiday. We might be a little late
it here, but it should be no less blood curdling for all that. This story is
written by Brandon "Avatarr" Alspaugh, so please send any and all comments
to him at firstname.lastname@example.org, not to me.

According to the writing, this is a photo of Casey after he has taken off his belt and boots. Perhaps in preparation for a cut X-rated scene?
