We've narrowed it down to seven choices for Fan Site and Fan Project of the year. Some sites received nominations in both categories, and unfortunately some very nice sites did not make it to this list. Everyone who maintains a Wing Commander site these days is doing the community a service, but for our purposes here we wanted to keep things manageable. And the nominees are..
Everyone is allowed to vote for one Site and one Project. And to those that were nominated, we've noticed that sites that put up a note/link about their nomination tend to net a few more votes. Rather that place restrictions on other sites' contents, we just wanted to make everyone equally aware of this. We'll be closing the polls in about one week. Vote now!

LOAF's taking a quick flight down to Austin right after the Two Towers premiere to check out Freelancer for the next few days. Hopefully he'll be back with lots of cool pictures later this week. And who knows what else he might find?
