The KF-100 Dralthi-class Medium Fighter is, as always, the signature Kilrathi fighter of Wing Commander Academy. Dralthi appear in episodes one, two, four, five, six, seven, nine, twelve and thirteen. Like the animated Scimitar, the Dralthi closely mirrors its game-based inspiration - it carries five missiles (two in racks above the cockpit and three in a centerline hardpoint) and two forward laser cannons. You can read more about the Dralthi's history here.
It's been a busy month for us at the CIC. Things haven't slowed down much from the Birthday to DragonCon to our server rebuilding. A few people have asked for updates on a couple promotional/merchandising issues that have been taking longer than expected.
Thanks for the interest in all these projects. They take a lot of time to organize, but don't hesitate to send us emails or drop by #Wingnut for status checks if you want to see how things are going.
- Birthday Present Mailings: Most Birthday presents shipped out before DragonCon, but we required additional packaging materials for many of the ones that included glasses. I've also gotten one or two packages returned in the mail for one reason or another.
- Customizable Card Game Trades: We have selected and requested various cards from some helpful people and should be trading shortly. No actual mailing should happen yet, just hold on a little bit for some final coordination to make the mailing more efficient.
- Custom Name CIC Polo Shirts: We are still waiting for a second batch of CIC Polos. We have generic ones in stock of various sizes, but our supplier has always been slow to deliver new shirts.
- DragonCon Prophecy Flight Suits: It doesn't look like time will permit creation of additional flight suits in time for Halloween for everyone this year. It might be possible to get a couple done, but we can't take an official call for orders now. Let us know if you want one and would actually use it soon. Sooner or later we should be able to make these generally available for everyone.
