Trivia:
Many of the star systems in the game are named after characters in Greek mythology, such as Nephele, Silenus, Orestes, Peleus, Circe, Telamon, Axius, Ella and Talos. As for some of the others, Tyr is the Norse god of war, Hellespont was the ancient Greek name for the Dardanelles strait and Callimachus was an ancient Greek poet.See more »

Revealing mistakes: After telling Blair he's worked out what the Flashpak is, Pliers exits by starting to climb up a ladder which is supposed to lead to another level on the ship. But as the camera moves away he can be seen coming back down again after only going up one step.See more »
Quotes:
Blair:[Blair is debating with Tolwyn of front of the Confederation Assembly] Admiral, do you believe the strong always survive?
Admiral Tolwyn:With every fibre of my being.
Blair:Is that why the head of the Black Lance forces is a product of the Genetic Enhancement program?
[consternation rumbles among the Assembly]
Paladin:That program was cancelled years ago!
Admiral Tolwyn:He's more of a warrior than you will ever be, Colonel. He is excellence personified. He is...
Blair:He is dead!
Admiral Tolwyn:He is... symbolic of all that we will achieve in the future.
Blair:And what is the expense of these achievements, Admiral? The lives already lost to your Black Lance forces, the millions more that will die if this Assembly votes for war? Space Marshal Tolwyn believes that our victory over the Kilrathi was a fluke. That we as a race need tinkering with, engineering! If a few billion die along the way, well they weren't worthy anyway! Why can't we be more like the Kilrathi, addicted to conflict, the only meaning in life being found in death, tell us all, Admiral! Is that the price of freedom?
Admiral Tolwyn:Mankind was at its zenith when fighting the Kilrathi. Now our society is crumbing. We have no goals and no focus, we've grown complacent and confused. Who will protect us when the next race tries to dominate us? Who can tell where that threat will come from and when...

pinnacle of FMV and gameplay, 7 June 2001
Author: VoodooChicken from Dallas, TX

Out of all Wing Commander products to make use of video sequences, this one was definitely the best. Mark Hamill and Tom Wilson really add depth to the game, and the late-great Jason Bernard gives a performance to squeeze respect out of any Starfleet Captain. By far, WAY superior to the movie.

While making only slight improvements over the Wing Commander III engine, and a supporting cast substantially weaker than it's predacessor, The Price of Freedom has a deeper plot and is a joy for everyone. I do not know a single person who's played this to have been disappointed.

I hear the DVD version rawks!
