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!
At a press conference just minutes ago, Jakob Engstler, Deputy Director of System Intelligence for ESC Extra-Spatial Security, spoke to ESNN and the sector regarding what he is calling a 'lone wolf' attack on New Zurich.
ENGSTLER: "There is no pirate agenda. While the individual in question does have former ties to a pirate settlement, this was a a lone wolf, operating outside of any organization, and he has been contained. Extra-Spatial Security and Coordinated Security forces engaged all appropriate assets to protect the citizens and respective corporations of New Zurich from this attack. As I will answer no further questions, please direct any inquiries to our public affairs office at handle 'ESC ExtraSec'."
Information just released by ExtraSec executives strongly suggests that the destruction of a private data terminal and its associated network on Damioyn II during a CoordSec strike several weeks ago may have been the motivation for the attack.
