Chronicles of a Wing Commander
Dwayne was an ordinary guy. Worked 9 to 5. Day to day life was dull and unfulfilling. Then the System came out. A full immersion VR system sponsored by DARPA to test long term coma like states and the effects on the human body and mind. The setting was a war across the stars.
Dwayne jumped at the opportunity and soon found himself the Pilot of a Lancer, a star fighter capable of delivering shaped nuclear charges into enemy vessels at point blank range.
