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!
"Doug Ardsox here with breaking news from the Pembroke System. Consortium officials are confirming the presence of a Temblor bomb on Pembroke A I, better known as Inferno. Viewers were stunned during last night's ESNN nightly news broadcast when the reactivation of a decades-old Kilrathi corvette resulted in the countdown initiation of a bomb that has apparently been hidden on Inferno since the end of the war. The broadcast was cut short by an unfortunate and completely accidental signal interruption, but not before the existence of the bomb was revealed to millions of viewers throughout the sector.

There simply aren't enough shuttles to evacuate everyone. There are no ESC personnel anywhere to be found, and I'm receiving reports that the last corporate ships lifted off several hours ago. The mood is getting increasingly tense, and-" Someone suddenly jumps in front of Roldy and grabs the camera. "HELP US, PLEASE! THEY'RE LEAVING US TO DIE HERE! OH GOD, WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!" Screams fill the air. There's a commotion somewhere off-camera. Suddenly, the image is replaced by the ESNN news desk and anchorman Doug Ardsox. "Ahem. We seem to have lost the signal. We'll work on getting back with Roldy. In the meantime, here's a word from our sponsors..."
