GOG.com re-releases Wing Commander 3 was created by TParis
This one is looking better than most previous EA releases, here's the legendary Wing Commander III for 5.99 dollars:

FYI, it's the classic DOS version running in DOSbox 0.73 (no idea why they aren't using 0.74).

System specs: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 (@2,83 GHz, Asus P5Q PRO, 4GB DDR2 RAM, Zotac GeForce GTX 260² (896 MB RAM), Windows 7 SP1 64-bit

Finally I know what Vacuum Breather stands for - Fleet Action ftw :)
Since a full e-book of Fleet Action is bundled with GOG's WC3-Release I began to read it a few days ago and now I know where some of the ideas/the inspiration for WC Saga came from.

Not just Fleet Action - Saga incorporates ideas from various sources, Fleet Action is just one of them.

Sure, I didn't mean that it's the only source, but it's the only WC book I have read so far and I noticed some similarities ;)

Insta-buy for me. Downloading now. I loved that game so much. Anyone know if I have to do anything special to get it to run? Windows 7 pro 64 bit here.

It uses DOSbox, so it should work just fine without further adjustments. It's sure not running as smooth as back in the days but it comes pretty close. Also, you might wanna use another emulated sound card than the Soundblaster 16. I post a link about this later.
