    Today we'd like to officially announce our annual Birthday Party for the CIC's 20th Anniversary! This year we'll be observing the event on Saturday, August 18, 2018 at 7:00 pm EDT (4:00 pm PDT and 11:00 pm GMT). We'll be celebrating two decades of Wing Commander community at wcnews.com, and we hope you join us! As usual, the day will be chock full of site updates, news stories, trivia and fun times! There'll also be one significant change this year. For the first time, we'll be transitioning the online party from IRC to Discord. A large group of Wingnuts has been testing out the program for over a year, and we'd like to invite you to join us there. Although the shift away from our trusty IRC server is bittersweet, there are some very cool advantages with Discord. The program makes it very easy to join on both PCs and via mobile devices, there's enhanced support for attachments and even

    We are excited to announce the return of the Phoenix Prize Pack, which return to Star Trek Online on PC from July 18th at 8AM PT til July 25th at 10am PT. Just like Zefram Cochrane’s experimental vessel, the Phoenix Prize Pack blazes a trail into new frontiers! And, following in the model of its mythological namesake, the Phoenix Prize Pack also represents the return from the ashes of items, ships and other rewards that have been retired from Star Trek Online, and are no longer accessible by any other means. Purchasing and opening this promotional prize pack will offer players the unique opportunity of obtaining many otherwise inaccessible items, ships and equipment, which were previously available from events or promotions, or as other limited-availability rewards. (Check further below for complete prize information!) How it works is simple: Players may visit the Dilithium Store to

    When we reached out to Tobias Richter to convert his beautiful high resolution model of Deep Space Nine into a model we could use in STO, we were hopeful we could continue a relationship with him. Tobias is an artist of great talent and passion for Star Trek, and today we’re proud to announce we’re adding more of his work to the game. Tobias has modeled brand new, highly detailed models for both the Excelsior-class starship as seen in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country and the Excelsior-class Refit, as seen in Star Trek: Generations. Like past remasters, these new models are available for free to anyone who already owns an excelsior variant. They include options for the lit and unlit nacelles, similar to the original Excelsior models. Superfans of the Excelsior will know that when it initially appeared in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, it looked a little different than how

    An appeal has been launched to find the owner of a lottery ticket worth one billion credits.


    The Federal Grand Lottery is the largest of its kind, regularly handing out millions of credits. The Grand Lottery also funds a wide range of social and infrastructure projects in Federation systems.


    The annual Galactic Jackpot is by far the most popular lottery game, but on this occasion the winner has yet to make a claim. Purchase of the winning ticket has been confirmed, but no data is available as to who bought the ticket or when.


    Tori Theopolis, a spokesperson for the Federal Grand Lottery, told the media:


    "Someone out there is rich beyond his or her wildest dreams – they just don't know it yet. We're keen to find this lucky individual so we can hand over their winnings. We ask all citizens to check with any lottery players they know. Your soon-to-be-billionaire friend or relative might

    Senior Character Concept Artist Jeremiah Lee stops by to create a character with feedback and direction from the live viewership on Twitch, apparently pre-determined to be based on host Jared Huckaby as an excuse to bring his beard back.

    It’s never coming back, Jeremiah.
