On March 5, 2013, Wing Commander: New Horizon MUSH was shut down due to lack of activity. Thanks to the staff and players for your support. We had a good run and created some amazing memories. Keep in touch on the Facebook page for the game, which will be preserved.
The entire game's codebase and database (minus player information) has been open-sourced and released to the public, and the game itself is back up to help support the code at wcmush.com 2199!
After sixty years of war with the Kilrathi, the combined military strength of the human forces is a shadow of what it once was. While the Terran Confederation still nominally exists, and rules over the core worlds, their formerly-long reach now just lasts a few sectors, giving rise to sector-level governments, small alliances, and so on; in this era, even the Union of Border Worlds, once praised by most "fringe" galactic citizens as a safe-haven for their way of life, is seen as weak and unable to deliver on its promises of peace and prosperity to its members.
The Humans in the Enigma Sector all are governed, whether they like it or not, by the Enigma Sector Consortium. Inhabitants of the sector make up not just Enigman natives, but also former members of the Terran Confederation, Union of Border Worlds, and even the Trans-Gemini Empire.
