    We get questions from time to time from Wing Commander fans that read about the WC DIVX and the mistaken rumors of its cancellation. DIVX was a late '90s format based around single-use DVDs. Each disc was encoded and serialized to sync with an online (via dialup) account that controlled playback. Owners could pay to watch again or unlock the disc for permanent use. After just a year of production, the format went bust and inventory was quickly cleared out. As Wing Commander was scheduled to be released for home viewing at right about the same time as DIVX died, there's a persistent belief out there that the WC DIVX was canceled. But that is not true! Circuit City most definitely had them for sale in the summer of 1999, and many of us still have the unopened packages to prove it! Any editors out there are more than welcome to fix the Wikipedia entry accordingly...

    The crew of the TCS Majestic continues to fight for control of the Nitir Sector! The action follows the chronicles of the Gemini Sector RPG. Weekly sessions keep the fun going on their Discord server, and Rear Admiral Tarsus continues to put these nifty mission briefings together to amplify the experience beyond your typical text-based role playing game. Sessions are held most Sunday mornings - they look like a really cool way to experience the WC series with your fellow fans. Hit the discuss button, check out their website or ask Tarsus directly for info on how to join in!

    Thanks to the enhanced sensors of the Rathburn as well as cunning of the Majestic's command crew, they located the Kilrathi fleet located in the nebula near Nitir, the crew must scout out the fleet while a secondary group engages the escort, thinning it out while hiding the true intent of the party.

    Negotiations between the Federation and self-styled dictator Yuri Grom are underway to determine the Delta Pavonis system's allegiance.
    Political correspondent Conrad Sterling published an update for Vox Galactica:
    "In recent years, Yuri Grom has developed a degree of mystique. He was one of the few leaders not to attend the Galactic Summit, and news from within his dominion was scarce. But now he is visibly relishing the opportunity to confront Federal representatives under the protection of diplomatic immunity."
    "Initial exchanges were belligerent as both sides argued over who would be the most beneficial partner. This was to be expected since Delta Pavonis is one of the Federation's founding systems, and it would be a significant coup for EG Union to establish a presence so close to Sol."
    "What was unexpected was the mutual respect that gradually developed between Yuri Grom and Ambassador

    Want to work with a star? Your dream could come true if you get hired by Steven Petrarca Events. While the delta variant continues to scourge across the land in my area and many others, California has taken a relatively modest hit and the fancy gathering industry appears to be booming. SPE is hiring, so the opportunity exists to pick up gigs working as "servers, bartenders, models/brand ambassadors, tray passers, scullery, and more!" I looked it up, and scullery has something to do with washing dishes. Mr. Petrarca has been doing this for almost fifteen years now and has garnered even more attention in the hospitality industry than in the acting business - where he famously starred Lance Casey in Wing Commander Prophecy!
