In the first printing of Wing Commander, there was a coupon included to get the Secret Missions disk at discount for $20. Origin, figuring demand would be low, had only printed up a few hundred copies. They were then horrified when they were almost immediately flooded with thousands of requests, creating a rather lengthy backlog. (of which I was part) All retail copies of the SMs then sold for $30.

When The Kilrathi Saga was released, Secret Missions 1 and 2 were made available for download from the Origin web/FTP site. The downloadable versions integrate seamlessly with Wing Commander.
