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!
With the recent revelation that a war-era doomsday device, a Temblor bomob, is embedded on Inferno, the Consortium and Commonwealth have jointly announced plans to terraform Bistango I as a new home for settlers who might not wish to return to the planet. The bomb has been disarmed and should be completely inert, but has not been removed, so some miners and their families have been understandably skittish to return; the preparation of a new colony on Bistango I will be a long, arduous process, with plenty of opportunity for player involvement.
A representative of the Enigma Board tonight announced that the Consortium will fund the revitalization of the historic Pembroke Station. The station was a heavily contested strategic stronghold during the Terran-Kilrathi war. It was nearly destroyed during a late offensive by the Kilrathi, and has remained uninhabitable in the years since. However, the Consortium now intends to refurbish the station. They say it will serve two purposes: As a security substation to combat the pirate problem that has plagued the outlying systems, and as a new hub for business and trade throughout the sector. The representative went on to say that that Consortium will soon begin offering contracts for the transport of materials needed for the reconstruction.
