The medal that Tolwyn wears around his neck when he is promoted to Space Marshal in the game's finale is actually a Meritorious Service Medal, a medium-level US military service award usually given to field grade officers and senior non-commissioned officers. Tolwyn's other medals are a random assortment of US military decorations. See more »


Eisen wears a Union of Border Worlds uniform instead of a Confed one in the cutscene where he appears on a video screen to rebuke Blair if the player ejects during the early Confed missions before Paulsen replaces Eisen as captain of the TCS Lexington. See more »


Blair: Lately some of the men haven't been so sure about the missions they've been flying for Confed.
Eisen: During the war with the Kilrathi it was easy, loyalty to Confed required little commitment. After all, what was the alternative? Now the war is over, second guessing is easy.
Blair: I never thought I'd see the day when I'd be shooting down my own kind.
Eisen: Humans will always vie for power, Colonel. The Confederation may be far less than perfect but remember it was the driving force behind our victory. It ...

This is the greatest movie/game out there.
22 February 2003 | by See all my reviews

Wing Commander III was good. But Wing Commander IV takes game playing to a whole other level. It's too bad there are not more games like this out there. They are a lot of fun to watch and play. You get caught up in the story. The acting is superb. Led by Mark Hamill as Colonel Christopher Blair, and Thomas F. Wilson as Maniac. With most of the cast back from Wing Commander III it felt like being with a old friend. It is interactive where you make some of the choses. Sometimes these can lead you down the wrong path or give you a unexpected twist. This game is never boring.
