Wing Commander III: Proxima and Sol Systems


Briefing Room, TCS Victory.
Eisen: Things look pretty grim, Colonel. Here’s the situation. The Kilrathi are coming at us full throttle. We’ve fallen back to this jump point in the Proxima system because it leads to straight to Earth. If we can’t defend this doorway, we might as well roll out the red carpet for them. I’m not going to lie to you, Colonel: we’re outnumbered and outgunned.
Maverick: Understood, sir. I’ll do my best.
Fly Proxima
Eisen: Colonel – we’ve been unable to hold the jump point. We don’t have any choice but to head back to Earth and try to stave them off there.
Rollins: It’s just like I been tellin’ you, Colonel: We’re gonna be eatin’ cat food pretty soon – that is, if we don’t become cat food. You’re cleared to land – and you better make it quick: We jump out in 60 seconds.
Victory Group Jump Sequence
Jumping to the Sol system: Earth orbit.


Briefing Room, TCS Victory.
Eisen: Ah, Colonel. You know the situation as well as I do. In all likelihood, we will never see each other again. I know none of us wants to live under Kilrathi rule. So, all I ask that you fight like you’ve never fought before… for duty, for honour, for all mankind…
Fly Sol
Bridge, TCS Victory.
Rollins: Sir, all our shields are down! We can’t stop them!
Eisen: They are not taking my ship!
Rollins: Sir! What are you doing? You’re heading right into their fleet!
Eisen: We’re going to take as many of them with us as we can! Make your peace, Mr Rollins–
Final Flight of the Victory…
Hangar, Kilrathi Dreadnought.
Thrakhath: At last, we meet face-to-face. The Heart of the Tiger…
Maverick: You’ll never truly conquer Earth, you know. Not before you have to destroy it.
Thrakhath: It is of small consequence. Your Homeworld is a watery planet, not an environment I have ever cared for. It is a pleasure, at last, to have finally, and completely, conquered you. The Kilrathi are not, however, without what you Humans call mercy. We shall grant you the opportunity to plead for your miserable life.
[Not begging for mercy from this furball…]
Maverick: Screw you.
Thrakhath: For you, Heart of the Tiger, a warrior’s death.
[I don’t wanna die…]
Maverick: You’ve won, Prince Thrakhath. Every being wants to live one more day. I’m no exception.
Thrakhath: Even the Heart of the Tiger proves unworthy in the end.
Earth Conquered
