Here is a summary of the various cheats for Wing Commander.
Any others?

Command line parameters:
WC  Origin s# m* w# -k l
WC2 Origin s# m* -k

Case and order are critical in the command line parameters.
SM2 has the same command line as WC.
SO1 and SO2 have the same command line as WC2.

The parameters work as follows:
Origin - Playtest mode with the Finger of God
         Activates the other command line parameters.
         Press ALT-DEL and the targeted ship explodes
         Press ALT-INS and ALL non-capital enemy ships on radar
                               explode (WC2/SO1/SO2 only) 
         Press ALT-Z   and your ship explodes
         Press ALT-M to toggle display of memory usage
         Press I to toggle display of current intelligence factor

s#     - Select specific series (e.g. s8)
m*     - Select specific mission (e.g. md)
w#     - Preview cinematic sequence (e.g. w3), scene numbers range from 1
         to 22. Mission specific scenes require that s# m* also be specified.
         (WC/SM2 only)
-k     - Unlimited shields
l      - Single mission, no copy-protection question (WC/SM2 only).

Example:
wc2 Origin s8 md -k
Starts Wing Commander II and loads System 8, Mission D (K'tithrak Mang)
and provides unlimited shields.
Try the missions off the main path (so2 Origin s5 ma).
