The Vega Strike Engine supported a number of different game assets. One of its earliest game assets was related to the Privateer/Wing Commander Series. A variety of spin offs were created based on these assets.
Rune Morling picked up the PWCU Assets in an effort to ressurect the game play. Benjamen Meyer sought to join him in the effort and found the underlying game engine (Vega Strike) to be in need of updating as well; as a result PWCU has joined the list of officially supported game assets by the current Vega Strike Development Team.
