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!
Good evening, I'm Brad Lockjaw. Tonight, we continue to examine the circumstances surrounding the mauling of a Guinterine Combine security officer by an unidentified Kilrathi attacker on the lower levels of New Zurich. ESC CoordSec has released a statement confirming the apprehension of the attacker, and promising a "swift and fair" application of justice. However, the CoordSec spokesperson went on to say that they can't be sure how many other rogue Kilrathi accomplices may have been associated with this offender. New Zurich residents are encouraged to remain in their homes until ESC security personnel can conclude their investigation. Non-residents, meanwhile, are strongly encouraged to leave New Zurich immediately for their own safety.
The attack has fueled the fire on both sides of the debate on whether Kilrathi and humans can continue to coexist peacefully. Radical groups from both species are calling for immediate action. The Veterans of the Kilrathi War, a human faction well known for their hostile attitude toward all Kilrathi, is offering a free M22A3 Battle Rifle to all new members who join their organization with a pledge to oppose "the Kilrathi menace". You may remember the VKW from their involvement in the Inferno Crisis, when their attempt to segregate evacuees by species resulted in a riot that left several injured.
Meanwhile, a group known only as the "Stars of Sivar" has released a statement calling for all "true and honorable Kilrathi" to attend a series of town hall-style meetings across Cabrea. Little is known about this relatively new organization other than the mission statement on its extranet site, which states that they are "a group of like-minded Kilrathi who seek a return to honor and tradition while minimizing needless conflict."
We will bring you more as it becomes available.
