TC recently stumbled across an italian virtual Wing Commander community that engages in various role plays. The Wing Wars game takes elements from Star Wars, Wing Commander, Dune and others to create a fantasy setting. The Wing Commander series has always been very popular throughout Europe, and so it's nice to see things like this in operation from time to time. Italian speakers might be able to shed a bit more light on this, but it seems like you can email the group for more information. There are links at their site for some backstory.
Wing Commander Wars is a virtual community in the universe of Wing Commander. In the year the 2670 humans in the Confederation travel in space and meet up with the expansionist Kilrathi empire. The virtual community allows you to join with one of the two powers or to remain a civilian trader.Not sure about the translation as it pertains to that date, but they seem to only be making light use of the established universe. I'm also a bit confused with how all the Star Wars stuff fits in.
