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!
A Sekhmet class fighter has been destroyed over Vespus by a mercenary crew. Numerous eyewitness reports from New Zurich and in orbit have established that the fighter, the 'Loose Noose Sinks Hips,' destroyed three light fighters sortied from the New Zurich Spaceport in trans-atmospheric combat, and attacked vessels in orbit of the planet.
The unknown mercenaries engaged the fighter and destroyed it between the planet and its moon. There is only one confirmed casualty: the pilot of the Sekhmet. New Zurich authorities are stating that the pilots of the ground-launched fighters ejected to safety and are recovering in a local hospital.
If there was a purpose to this attack, we have not been made aware of it. More news as this story develops.
