  1. As always, thanks for the great post! This was a very interesting article because of the things he mention that don’t show up in the final game:

    – the losing endgame doesn’t tell you how many waves you survived.
    – the trainsim doesn’t have his “weird esoteric missions”… and certainly no terrain missions! (Which is a shame, this would have been a really cool way to extend the game without spending extra money.)
    – the Kilrathi transport with the “weird shape” isn’t in the (PC) version of the game. I have never quite undestood what happened here. The triangular transport shows up in the pre-release screenshots, it appears in the 3DO version and it shows up in a Wing Commander IV cutscene… even in the card game… but the finished Wing Commander III has a transport that’s a far less interesting set of boxes and latticeworks.
