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 spokesman for FiberLink Industries tonight announced the completion of construction on Pembroke Station. The station, now fully operational, is expected to quickly become a sizable hub for free trade and industry in the Enigma Sector that will be dwarfed only by New Zurich itself.
Pembroke Station originally began as a Consortium operation primarily under the control of VSI. However, in light of the Inferno crisis, the project was sold to an undisclosed private bidder who single-handedly contracted the rest of the construction process to several other businesses.
FiberLink Industries, the largest of these contractors, had a representitve on hand to answer a few questions at the announcement. However, when asked about the identity of the person or persons who actually /own/ the station, the representative was only able to identify their parent corporation. Further investigation into the matter revealed only a number of shell corporations, leaving the ownership of the station itself something of a mystery.
Perhaps this intrigue is specifically being manufactured to generate more hype, or perhaps the owner simply wishes to remain anonymous. Whatever the case, it has people talking and businesses lining up to contract storefront space on the station's promenade.
Stay tuned for our broadcast at 11, when Brooke Robinson will give us our first look at the station's operations level in a live report.
