She was a hottie.
There was a short lived Wing Commander cartoon series on USA which seemed much closer in spirit to the games (especially to WC3). It was called Wing Commander Academy, and it starred the voices of some of the actors from WC3 and 4.

Reprising their roles from the games:
Mark Hamill, Tom Wilson, and Malcolm McDowell

The cartoon was actually pretty cool.
I think I saw part of the cartoon.

Trekkie, you would LOVE BioShock then. It's another first person shooter that has some "decision affecting" moments....not to mention the gameplay mechanics are some of the best I've seen in a while...and the story behind it is worthy of a big budget motion picture (which is in the works).

Bioshock is kinda a watered down version of system shock, set undwater with a little great gatsby mixed in.

Its also rediculously easy compared to System Shock, So if you loved system shock.... bioshock is like a video game pixie stick fun, short and easy.

I miss Day of the Tentical and Sam and Max, those were my favs growing up

OH and Battle Chess, yessss. battle chess.

The Tom Wilson from BTTF? He was in WC?
System Shock 2 was the first game I had to quit, because I was so scared. Didn't wanna play it for days
Unfortunately, BioShock doesn't run smoothly on my PC - i tried the demo and got a slide show. And I think the idea of using plasmids is stupid - we're eucaryotes
