We here at the CIC have struggled to bring you the best in Wing Commander related news and services for the last five years. For those of you who have followed our efforts, there have been difficulties paying for our server and we've had to make numerous cutbacks. Until now, we've been happy to do so for free. But the internet bubble has burst. With the rising costs of maintaining the site, it's time to move into the next phase of our evolution. With that, we present to you CIC Complete! For the low introductory price of $20 per year, Wing Commander fans will have complete access to the following goodies and more.
This will allow us to expand and bring even better things to you in the future. Hopefully everyone is as excited as we are. Paypal and all major credit cards accepted.. SUBSCRIBE TODAY!

Apparently somebody found where we hid the bodies (or CDs from destroyed Wing Commander ripoffs)! DragonCon officials have circulated the following photo to local police and authorities to be on the lookout for certain mischievous staff members of the Wing Commander CIC. Their list of grievances include, but are not limited to: obscene acts against innocent space sims, use of hotel property in destructive ways, commandeering public resources, heckling innocent authors, leering at porn stars, misusing lighting products, "cruising" the streets of downtown Atlanta for periods up to 9 hours, harassment and assault of The Flaming Carrot, & being too pale for our own good. Looks like we'll be crashing the party instead of visiting it this year. JOIN CIC COMPLETE!
