Trivia:
Two of the testifiers in the end sequence are minor characters from the game. The man who says "You saw the results," was the doctor from Telemon, and the man who says "The honorable Admiral Towlyn" is the ex-pilot you meet in the bar at the beginning.See more »
Goofs:
Miscellaneous: When Tolwyn orders the Vesuvius helmsman to turn the ship around just as it's about to go through a jump point, the jump wormhole starts to open but closes again immediately, before the helmsman actually obeys the order after initially protesting and aborts the jump. Normally in Wing Commander a jump point wormhole opens just as a ship enters it and stays open until it passes through.See more »
Quotes:
Admiral Tolwyn:[Tolwyn is giving his final address to the Confederation Assembly before the vote on the declaration of war against the Border Worlds] A formal declaration of war is a very terrible thing. It should not be undertaken unless all options have been exhausted. I'm afraid to report to you that that is the case. We did not fight the Kilrathi for decades just to have an infection hollow us out from the inside. If there is a cancer amongst us, we must cut it out now! I urge you to vote yes on this declaration. Thank you.

This is the greatest movie/game out there., 22 February 2003
Author: Dixie from Oregon, United States

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.
