Storyline

It is several years after the end of mankind's war against the Kilrathi. Col. Christopher Blair is called back into active duty by the Terran Confederation to help stop acts of terrorism that appear to be taking place against Confed by Border Worlds forces. But it soon becomes clear that the enemy may not be them at all when Blair and several of his friends defect to Border Worlds forces to try to find out who the real culprits are and to prevent the Confederation and the Border Worlds from entering into the chaos of an intergalactic war....

Once again, as in the previous game, Paladin is listed in the credits as "Maj. James 'Paladin' Taggart" (Maj. means Major). He was only a Major in the first game, in Wing Commander II he is a Colonel, in Wing Commander III he is a General, and in this game he is retired from the military and is now a Senator. See more »

Quotes

Catscratch: Attacking that convoy... is this the way wars start?
Blair: Let me tell you something, Catscratch. Wars are like bombs. The fuse gets lit before you actually hear the bang and sometimes the fuse can be pretty long.

Ground breaking

WC4 was an amazing step for what used to be a prized goal, interactive movies. All of the previous WC games were also interactive movies, expanding the field with every release. This was the first computer game to make the cutscenes and movies on actual film to add to the quality and detail of the scenes. Other games had live-action cutscenes, but none were as interactive and as high quality as this was, using all sorts of movie special effects. It was a milestone in not only the Wing Commander but also the Interactive Movie history.
