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 press conference has been called on Inferno by the Infernal Design Union's president, Harvey Yendor, discussing the recent completion of an ESC contract providing food benefits to the citizens of Inferno.
A tall human with unruly, spiky blonde hair stands before a large statue at the Inferno spaceport.
"Ladies, citizens, and others, I stand before you today in the shadow of a colossal waste of time. This thing," he says, gesturing behind him, "purports to represent the struggle of Infernans everywhere, and their 'savior.' What it actually does is gather pigeon poop. I don't even know where they came from. Who puts pigeons on a mining colony?"
He turns from the podium, waving at something in the air: maybe a pigeon.
"Canaries, sure," he says, returning to the microphones, "but pigeons? This is ridiculous. The point is, people," Yendor says, slamming a hand down on the podium, "now you can eat. And it isn't because of ol' shit-head back here, who did you all the favor of threatening to blow up your planet and then politely helped you vacate it, before rushing in and saying 'oh, no, just joking, we saved you from the magical vaporware explosion that we warned you about in the first place."
