Congratulations on successfully navigating the jump to Roberts Space Industries!
The morning of May 3, 2075 started out like any other. Rebecca Childress sat at the dining table coloring while her mom watched the morning news.
This is the first in a series of updates which will introduce you to the men and women behind the games. Check back soon to learn more about the people who made Wing Commander, Freelancer… and who are still creating worlds!
What do you think? Would you like to see a return to the cockpits of yesterday… or do you still turn them off when you go to play the classics?
I hadn’t planned on writing another message so soon after launching this “underground” site, but because of the amazing outpouring of excitement and support I felt I couldn’t wait.

In this segment we will be featuring some of the great work Chris Roberts’ fans around the world have been responsible for over the years.
After years of simulations and tests, the governments of the world pool their knowledge and resources to attempt the first planetary conversion.
The test subject: Mars.
It’s little-remembered today, but when Chris Roberts changed the world with Wing Commander in 1990 he was already a household name among gamers.
Today is a dark day. In the pursuit of human advancement, the history books tend to favor the brave men and women who succeed. The Wright Brothers, the John Glenns, the Edwin Pierces distinguished themselves because they were the ones that did it, that made it through. But around the monolith of every achievement are the bodies of those that tried and failed. Today is a dark day and today we’re going to celebrate the brave men and women who laid down their lives in the tragedy that struck Mars at 04:38 EST this morning.
