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 2199!

Tensions high after Scotts murder

Brad Lockjaw for ESNN, following up on the recent horrific events in the New Zurich Basement Levels.

CoordSec is continuing to pursue "all leads" in the matter of the slaying of Vanessa Scotts, the Guinterin Combine security officer who was murdered in the line of duty while protecting a VIP at Chez Hannibal's, although they would not confirm nor deny whether they were considering the ridiculous suggestion that the ESC was somehow complicit in the events at Chez Hannibal's.

(The same glamor shot of the Guinterin officer that was posted in the first story flashes on screen again, lingering much longer than necessary on her pleasing curves.)

While CoordSec is only releasing limited details at this time, due to this being an active and ongoing investigation, CoordSec is confirming that the slaying of Ms. Scotts was carried out by multiple young male Kilrathi connected to the "Ka nar Zaga" fitness gyms.

In light of the development that this was not the work of a lone "feral" Kilrathi, patriotic Enigman groups, like the Veterans of the Kilrathi War, are clamoring louder than ever for the complete ejection of all Kilrathi from the sector, although this would abrogate several treaties with the Kilrathi Commonwealth, and is not being considered seriously by the ESC Board at this time.

Seeking to allay the public's concerns, the Board will be convening a special emergency meeting at 2000 on January 5, 2732, open to the public. Due to the special security restrictions in place on New Zurich, the meeting will be held by teleconference on Pembroke Station.

The Board would also like to convey its gratitude for the assistance of the "Savior of Inferno," Diana Cabrera, in investigating the tragic events on New Zurich. The Board laments that there are not more public-minded citizens like Ms. Cabrera, willing to put the common good before selfish and petty personal vendettas.

In other news, the recovery of 20th century artifacts from an authentic "basement dwelling" on Bistango has been completed successfully, paving the way for the Bistango terraforming project to continue.

There was a brief dispute over the disposition of the artifacts, with ESC archaeological consulant Wisconsin "Whiskey" Smith demanding that they "belonged in a museum". When informed that this was precisely where the artifacts are being sent, Dr. Smith withdrew his objections.
