Kilrathikiller and Final Save Point have written a mini-article on the Wing Commander timeline. They've recently been inspired to talk about it in their news and add it to their chronology page alongside other modern game series. Keep spreading the word!
Now Wing Commander, for those who don't know, is one of the most revolutionary video game series of all time. Many great people worked on those games, including Warren Spector, Richard Garriot, many members of teams from Bioware and other game companies that make cinematic games that we have come to be used to. This game was an interactive movie. Uncharted, Mass Effect, the presence of cinematics and storyline are all thanks to Wing Commander.
