Behind the scenesEdit

Both Pilgrim Stars, and the first few chapters of Pilgrim Truth overlaps the first half of the Vega Campaign in Wing Commander I.

Beyond this it is impossible to tell when WC1 takes place throughout the year as the majority of the dates are randomized beginning with 2654.110 (which is a date more or less between Chapter 14 and 15 of Pilgrim Stars). Enyo (WC1 date) has to overlap with this period, and Maniac, Taggart, and Blair were captured between .088 and .128 and were on board the CS Olympus during this period. Taggart doesn't return to the ship until around .163. This means that none of them were involved at Enyo, and that McAulliffe had to have occurred well after .163 in the year.

Super Wing Commander makes 2654.110 the publication date of Claw Marks, but not necessarily the date of Enyo. No dates are given in game for when Enyo begins.

Wing Commander I and II: The Ultimate Strategy Guide moves Carl T. LaFong to the Claw in august (about .222), and the Enyo series to around September. Other timelines place Venice around .287. So placing the campaign roughly between late August to October (well after Pilgrim Truth or the Academy TV series).

WC3 Novel notesEdit
