Wing Commander From the Ashes has kicked off a new chapter. Silent Hunter reports that the forum-based WC RPG has zeroed in on the Jolson pleasure planet in XXN-1927 for its latest activities. If you enjoy the Gemini Sector but always wanted to fly there on behalf of the Confederation, this one's for you! You can join in on the fun at their forums here. And if you haven't seen it before, ksabers also made a neat crest below for the star of the story, TCS Phoenix.
The squadron commander offices on TCS Bosworth, a Yorktown-class carrier much like Phoenix had the same basic interior design; the chairs and tables were from the same company, the same brand in fact. Commanders wanting to inject a degree of personality into their own officer had to purchase their own stuff from external sources – or the PX for that matter.
This office, owned by Major Wallace ‘Gromit’ Samsung, commander of the Ravens of Despair, contained a number of personal touches. A model of the Scimitar that the squadron flew; although the fighters had been officially retired seven years earlier, they still operated on a number of wings that hadn’t managed to upgrade to newer fighters yet. There were a few personal photos and a poster of a man in a fencing outfit, holding an epee in the en garde position.
Wallace himself, a blond Caucasian man in his early 30s, only recently promoted to this position looked down at the chess board on his desk and at the single solitary black King, then at the white Queen and the White Rook, then his mouth opened with a distinctive grin.
