Dan was one of many people who let us know that Game Daily recently ran a list of their 25 favorite game endings of all time. Wing Commander III makes the cut at number 14 and finds itself in the company of Diablo, Fallout and Mass Effect.
"Many a Terran Confederation veteran shed a tear when Christopher Blair (played in FMV cutscenes by Mark Hamill) finally destroys the Kilrathi's homeworld and breaks the proud warrior race once and for all. It was a rewarding and thrilling end to an incredible gaming saga, even if the Kilrathi Muppets left a little something to be desired."
Mission G2 is the second in the G'mar series, the "mop up" after the attack on the station. One interesting point, which explains why the destroyed station is still around in the finished game, is the fact that the target of the previous mission was likely originally only the array component rather than the base itself. Is this why capital ships in Prophecy don't blow up at all?
These updates are thanks to John "Captain Johnny" Guentzel, who provided several CD image archives of material used by the Wing Commander Prophecy development team!
