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!
This is Brad Lockjaw for ESNN, reporting on the tragic events on Cabrea.
A massive explosion ripped through Terrantown, the human slum in Traggil, Cabrea. An apartment complex housing many humans was completely destroyed, leaving nothing more than a smoking crater and heavily damaging adjacent structures. A good number of refugees from Inferno and evacuees from Vespus were said to be living there.
A few Kilrathi passing on the streets were also killed, and the Kilrathi Commonwealth government has vowed to avenge their deaths upon the "honorless cowards" who committed this atrocity. As for the human dead, the Commonwealth spokesperson shrugged and referred us to ESC ExtraSec.
As of yet, no group has claimed responsibility for the attack. In light of their recent activities, Ka nar Zaga came under early suspicion. When asked if they were involved, a Ka nar Zaga spokesperson asked if there were any bodies left. When told that all the bodies had been vaporized in the explosion, the spokesperson thought for a moment, then explained that he doubted that they were involved.
Other suspects include extremist elements of the Veterans of the Kilrathi War, who may have accidentally targeted humans instead of Kilrathi on Cabrea; The True and Honest Free Man's Press, which has been tied to similar bombings in Sting; and possibly a third, previously unknown group. Authorities are pursuing all leads.
