Hey Hey!!!!

I remember playing the game with my Uncle back in '96. I remember thinking to myself then-"Hey wait this is the Admiral T. he can't betray the Confederation!!" Now I realize that this is what made the game better. The big bad leader of the human fleets has greed and ambition. As for the book I think it is the 2nd best wingcommander book with the exception of Action Stations. It really helped tie up some lose ends left in the game.

The Price of Novelization

(...)This book is really great because it is somthing that us as readers can somewhat relate to. From "To Kill A Mockingbird" Atticus said that you never no someone until you get into their shoes and walk around in them. That's what this is like, if you play the game and then read the book then you begin to see yourself as Blair when you read the book and it isn't really Blair it's you who is doing all the action. In the book you can read what Blair is thinking and not just watch and see what he does which makes it a lot better. The novelization of a game can never be exact and I think that the auther did a good job because he made it exciting and he made it more relistic for the Wing Commander Universe that is based off of both the games and the books. If it really happened you would most likly not fly that many missions. I reccomend the book.

The Best Wing Commander Book I Have Read!

This book is superb! A real gem in the wing commander saga. -Collin Hoffman Silver Moon Online Books


This novel is the best no matter what the others said if you just read the novel it is good I had truble putting it down

Well..... it's..... different.....

Okay, I know the changes in the book was done for the sake of the book, but... well... I loved Vagabond in the game, whether it's his personality or his fate at the end. (And this has nothing to do with me being a Chinese...) but in the book, he is, well, not there... a few seconds, maybe, but not enough... Also, the book never told how Maniac and Vagabond lived from the last mission to Kilrah... I mean, it's pretty logical that they were picked up by the Kilrhathis, but... I'd have liked to see it explained in the book... but don't get me wrong, it's a very good book... I recommand it to every WC fan out there...
