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!

Relocation program a success

This is Brad Lockjaw, for ESNN, no longer filling in for Katie Kilometers. Thanks for the letter of recommendation, Katie! You're a doll.

New Zurich authorities are reporting that the Board-mandated relocation program has been a complete success. We interviewed residents of New Zurich to get their reactions, which were overwhelmingly positive.

"I can't believe how much nicer the city is without all those hobos in it!"

"The streets have never been so clean. I almost slipped on a patch of freshly-cleaned pavement last week!"

"I was skeptical at first, but the relocation program was the right thing for New Zurich. Things have never been so good here."

"The parties aren't nearly as wild, man. Hey, gotta run, I think I hear Salah's goons coming."

And there you have it: The relocation program has accomplished all of its goals ahead of schedule, and under budget. As a result, the ESC Board has decided to close out the enforcement contract; immigration and custom responsibilities will return to normal star port authorities.

The Board warns that the enforcement contract may be renewed if there is a reflux in unauthorized residents to New Zurich.

And now for a quick update on the Vanessa Scotts story: It turns out that our very own Katie Kilometers was present at the time Ms. Scotts was brutally murdered, and will be giving us an exclusive interview, once she's been released from the psychiatric ward at New Zurich Central Hospital.

(A publicity photo of a slender, amply endowed brunette underwear model with the name 'KATIE KILOMETERS' floating above it flashes on the screen.)

Also, in recognition of her generous public service, a plaque has been added to the Diana Cabrera statue on Inferno, declaring her "Investigator of the Year" for her tireless, public-minded pursuit of answers in the Scotts slaying.
