Matthew Khouzam found a video with a cute Wing Commander cameo. XCOM Lore in a Minute is a quick run through that series' backstory. When the clip reaches X-COM Interceptor and its genre shift over to space combat, the fighter pilot is clearly a tribute to Christopher Blair from WC2. The character is outfitted in a surprisingly accurate WC2 flight suit and blue hairdo. Check out the video here and the WC bit at 0:55.
